The Virgin Valley High School Lady Bulldog volleyball team outlasted the Eagles from Boulder City Tuesday night in Boulder City 3-2. One of the most anticipated volleyball match of the year finished as advertised and did not disappoint volleyball aficionados from both sides of the court.
The Lady Bulldogs came out firing on all cylinders winning the first two sets 25-23 and 25-19. Last year’s champion Eagles would not let the Dawgs out of their gym so easily, winning the next two sets by identical 25-20 scores. After a short break, the Dawgs put the Eagles away 15-9 in the final game to go away victors.
Leading the way for the Bulldogs were Bernice Fiso with 15 kills and 13 digs, sister Janella Fiso with 35 assists, 8 aces and 6 digs. Emma Barnum was strong on the net with nine kills, two blocks and two aces. Dylan Bryant chipped in seven kills to help the Dawgs attack. The win put the Lady Dawgs on top of the 1-A Sunrise League standings with a 4-0 record and 14-7 for the season. The Dawgs travel to Del Sol Thursday, Desert Pines on Monday October 5 before hosting TECH on October 7.
