Bulldogs get first volleyball win
Baker’s volleyball team earned its first victory of the year Thursday in the Baker gym over Fruitland.
The scores were 25-20, 25-20, 17-25, 25-19.
“We have won some games in tournaments, but we haven’t won a whole match yet this year,” said coach Marcy Hayes. “The girls worked very hard and played well tonight.”
Individual statistical leaders included Tara Talbott, 17-of-18 serving with an ace. She was also 23-for-27 hitting with 11 kills.
Savannah Daly finished 38-for-43 setting and contributed 13 assists. Annie Martin was 6-for-7 hitting and notched 3 kills.
Josey Lay had a kill and a point block.
“We were very strong defensively tonight and played tough,” Hayes said. “We also had a few players pick it up on offense to help balance out the game for us.”
The last time Baker played Fruitland, the Bulldogs lost in three games, “so this was a real improvement for us tonight,” Hayes said.
The Baker team heads for La Grande this weekend for its final tournament of the season.
