BHS volleyball loses three straight

September 25, 2008

Last Thursday, the Baldwin High School varsity volleyball team lost to De Soto in four games at home.

De Soto won the first two games 25-15, 25-15. Baldwin rallied to win the third game, 25-23, to stay alive and it looked like a fifth game was going to decide the match.

However, De Soto rallied to win the fourth game, despite being down 20-13. The Wildcats won the game 25-22.

"Tonight was a tough night," coach Kelly Brown said. "The girls are playing against themselves at times. We had too many serving errors last night."

Sophomore Lyndsey Lober and senior Olivia Catloth each had three individual stuff blocks. Junior Taylor Brown had eight kills while sophomore Ramie Burkhart had seven.

"It was a frustrating night," Brown said. "We should have won the match, but the other team just had more energy than us."

On Tuesday, the Bulldogs continued their season at Spring Hill. Baldwin lost to Spring Hill in two games, 25-12 and 25-15. The Bulldogs almost beat Gardner-Edgerton, but lost in three games. The scores were 23-25, 25-17 and 25-20.

Lober and sophomore Ramie Burkhart both had a 90 percent serving percentage Tuesday, only missing one serve apiece.

"We played great against Gardner, but we lost in the third game after being ahead," K. Brown said.

The varsity will travel to Saint James Academy to play at 5 p.m. Monday.
