Baldwin High School volleyball team opens with 2-1 record at Eudora quad
The Baldwin High School volleyball team opened the season with a 2-1 record Tuesday at a Eudora quad.
Coach Jill Brown said the team came out tight in its first match against Basehor-Linwood. The Bobcats took advantage to win in three sets (20-25, 25-16, 23-25).
“We gave them too many points on unforced errors,” Brown said.
Junior Jordan Hoffman had 18 kills and senior Madeline McCrary nine digs in the match.
The Bulldogs played much better against Bonner Springs, making only two errors in winning in two sets (25-17, 25-7). Senior Morgan Lober had eight of the team’s 20 kills in the match and no errors for a 72.7 percent hitting efficiency, Brown said. Junior Alexia Stein had two aces, four kills and a block while playing error-free.
Baldwin also dispatched Eudora in two sets (25-17, 25-20), but Brown was not as pleased with the team’s performance against the Cardinals.
“Although we won the Eudora match, we still gave them more points than I would like,” she said. “We definitely need to work on limiting our mistakes and taking advantage of our strengths.”
Next up for the Bulldogs is the Frontier League Tournament Saturday in De Soto.
