Consistency remains a problem for the Baker volleyball team.

The Bulldogs played up and down against Weiser Tuesday, falling 15-25, 25-22, 25-15, 26-24 to the Wolverines in the Baker gym.

"We played well and had good ball control in the first game," said Baker coach Michele McCauley.

But the Bulldogs then had four hitting errors, three service errors and struggled with their blocking in the second game.

"We can fix this stuff," McCauley said. "We just need to learn how to play consistent. We just have to keep playing and work through this stuff."

Michelle Freese led Baker with 9-of-10 serving and three aces, and 20-of-23 hitting with five kills.

Kayla Davis was 11-of-12 serving with three aces and seven kills.

Madi Elms had eight digs, Makenna Bachman was 8-for-8 serving, Kaeli Flanagan had three kills, Kate Averett four kills, Amy Wong 12 digs, and Jennifer Hibbard was 4-for-5 on serve receive.

Baker swept the non-varsity matches.

Baker won the JV match 25-15, 25-16.

The Bulldogs won the frosh match 25-17, 25-16. Becca Hughes was 7-for-8 serving with four aces. Gracee Cross was 4-for-4 hitting with three kills, and Paige Pearce was 3-for-4 passing.

Baker travels to Emmett, Idaho, Thursday.
