Fruitland spikes Bulldogs
Baker dropped a non-league volleyball match at Fruitland, Idaho, Tuesday 25-12, 25-20, 25-20.
“We had a really slow start,” said Baker coach Michele McCauley. “We didn’t get things going until the last half of the first game, and by that time it was too late. And, Fruitland is a good ball club.”
McCauley said Baker needed to be more consistent.
Whitney Phillips led the Bulldogs with nine kills. Becca Joseph added a dozen digs.
Baker travels to Burns Saturday for the Burns Invitational tournaament.
In Tuesday’s non-varsity matches, the Baker JV fell 20-25, 29-27, 15-10 and the Baker frosh won 25-18, 25-21.
In the JV match, Stacey Duman was 12-for-12 serving and 10-for-10 hitting. Michelle Birkmaier was 9-for-10 serving, Katheryn Daugherty and Ashley Trees each 8-for-8 serving, Jessica McKim 14-of-15 hitting with two kills, and Abby Smith 7-of-8 digging.
In the frosh match, Liz Wulk was 15-of-17 serving with six aces, Ashley McConnell 10-for-10 serving with three aces, and Taylor McAdams had three kills.
