The Bulldogs host frontrunner Boulder City in a crucial rematch Tuesday, October 21 at 6 p.m.

“We finally started playing in the third match,” said Bulldog Coach Lori Barnum. “We had 55 digs in an all-around effort. It was the same for our offense as we had 28 kills as a team and 10 aces. A big shout out to our parents and especially the student section, they really contributed to our win.”
