The Boling Lady Bulldogs’ volleyball season ended in the bi-district round against the Anderson-Shiro Lady Owls Tuesday in Columbus.
The team lost to the Lady Owls for a second consecutive year. Boling, however, was more competitive, scoring 17 additional points, but still falling, 25-15, 25-14, 25-17.
Sophomore Savannah Savage led with seven kills.
“Anderson Shiro is competitive and played fundamentally well,” BHS coach Ashleigh Burnside said. “We made some costly and timely errors that had the lead shift in their favor. The girls played hard and never gave up. I am proud of them for growing and improving throughout the season.”
Emma Jones, the sophomore setter, assisted on 14 kills.
On defense, Savage and sophomore libero Maddy Simpson both had a team-high eight digs.
Kylee Joyce was Boling’s lone senior this year. The Lady Bulldogs will return a large core that has played the last few seasons together.
“It is going to help a lot with the majority of the team returning. Hopefully, we will be able to pick up where we left off and continue to improve and grow,” Burnside said. “Their knowledge of the game has grown tremendously over the last two years, so coming into next season, they should now understand the game much better.”
