Volleyball Subdistricts underway

Nov 1: The D1 No. 4 ranked BDS Eagles fell to No. 1 ranked Exeter-Milligan Tuesday night in the D1-2 subdistrict final played at Fillmore Central. It was the fourth time the two teams faced each other in the 2011 season.

“We came up short in a hard fought match,” said BDS Coach Dan Sorge, “but after a slow start in game one, we battled the Timberwolves to the end. Some unforced errors late in game four hurt our chances of going to a fifth game, but I was proud of how we battled back and kept putting pressure on their defense.”

The extended fourth game came to an end when BDS attempted to bounce a kill of E-M blockers, but went wide and just missed the line. Exeter-Milligan went 25-13, 25-20, 23-25, 32-30 in the win.
