VOLLEYBALL: Losses open season

ONTARIO Baker opened its Greater Oregon League volleyball season on a sour note Saturday, dropping matches to Ontario and Vale.

The Bulldogs lost 15-7, 16-14 at Ontario Saturday morning, then fell 15-4, 15-4 at Vale in the afternoon.

Baker coach Michele McCauley wasnt pleased with many aspects of the Bulldogs play during the day.

We didnt play very well against Ontario, she said. We really didnt play our game, and never got into it. We didnt look like ourselves. We were really heavy in the error column.

McCauley said the Bulldogs missed five serves in the first game against the Tigers.

In Game 1, Cassie Scrivner was 9 for 9 hitting with four kills, and five assists. Kari Staten added four kills.

In the second game, McCauley said Baker served better. Tanya Denne was 7 of 8 serving and 5 for 5 passing. Mary Kreger was 8 for 10 hitting with two kills and seven good digs.

McCauley said Baker played better against a tough Vale squad, but still not well enough.

We still made too many unforced errors, she said. We made some great plays, but we have to capitalize with some serves. We didnt correct things like we should.

In the first game, Scrivner was 18 for 19 setting with five assists. Jill Peacock had three kills, and Rose Supan two solo blocks.

In the second game, the teams battled to a 2-2 tie through several rotations. Baker then took a 4-2 lead, but went on to miss five serves the rest of the way.

Its pretty difficult to play a team like Vale if you dont serve well, McCauley said.

Roseanne Curtis had four good digs for the Bulldogs.

Baker travels to Fruitland, Idaho, for a non-league match Tuesday. The Bulldogs defeated Fruitland at Baker earlier this season.

Baker returns to GOL play Thursday when the Bulldogs host Mac-Hi at 4 p.m.
