From Coach Shelly Prickel:The Batesville JV Volleyball team traveled to Rushville on Tuesday evening and earned a convincing 25-14, 25-9 win. Nikki Fox was perfect on all 13 serves scoring 9 points including 4 aces. Kerigan Haskamp earned 8 points, tied for the team lead with 4 kills, and rejected the Lion offense with 3 stuff blocks. Katie Bedel and Shelby Westerfeld also pounded 4 kills in the front line. Belle Wolters and Grace Sarringhaus each had 2 kills at the net. Grace Laudick had a team high 14 good serve receptions and 7 digs. Their record is now 11-4.In the Varsity match the lady bulldogs showed they could control a match winning 25-16, 25-19, 25-21. Never once did we feel we may lose. We had a uniform attack with multiple players having five or more kills. Our service attack was strong and with less errors than usual. If anything bothered us last night it was the heat. We finally found a venue that makes us appreciate our gym; IT WAS HOT! #* Lily Abplanalp controlled the service line for us standing back and serving for the most rotational points and aces.Dogs travel to South Dearborn for our first match up with them this season on Thursday. JV start time will be 5:00.Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Jody Thomas.
