BDS Win 3; 1-1 At CRC Tourney

Bruning-Davenport/Shickley finished 4-1 in volleyball action last week.  Unfortunately, for the Eagles the loss was in the second-round of the 2014 Crossroads Conference (CRC) Tournament and kept them from continuing to play on Monday and Tuesday.
BDS is now 12-11 on the season.
The Eagles began last week with a pair of wins in a triangular in Dorchester.  BDS defeated the Longhorns 25-15, 25-14, on Tuesday, October 14.
Jaycie Hoins ripped nine kills against Dorchester and both Carley Elznic and Catherine Mick smacked six kills.  Madison Yantzie tallied 22 assists in the win.
McKenna Schardt paced the defense with nine digs and Megan Grote cracked in three ace serves.  Hoins tallied seven digs and two ace blocks, while Elznic added an ace block.
"Our aggressive serving game and net play kept them playing defense and they were unable to get into any rhythm on offense," Eagle coach Dan Sorge said.
Next, BDS easily got past McCool Junction 25-9, 25-18, in Dorchester.
Mick pounded eight kills against the Mustangs and both Elznic and Hoins notched five kills.  Yantzie tallied 15 ace sets and Tristen Mosier added five assists.
Hoins, Yantzie and Mosier all nailed two ace serves in the match and Kristin Troyer and Brice Ardissono both tallied an ace block.
"We played a solid game one before we played timid with our second team players in game two allowing them to hold an early lead," Sorge said.
On Thursday, October 16, BDS defeated High Plains 25-19, 25-13, 23-25, 25-15, at High Plains.
Mick pounded 26 kills against the Storm in the victory.  Schardt added 10 terminations and Elznic slammed seven kills.  Yantzie recorded 39 ace sets in the match.
Schardt ripped three ace serves in the win and Yantzie added two.  Yantzie also paced the Eagle defense with 24 digs.  Hoins recorded 20 digs and Elznic had 14.  Mick was credited with three ace blocks and Troyer notched one.
"Our aggressive net play kept the pressure on the Storm defense," Sorge said.  "In game three, our passing broke down allowing High Plains to force a fourth game.  We were able to regain our composure and came out on top against a scrappy Storm team."
Sixth-seeded BDS began CRC Tournament play on Saturday with a 25-7, 25-8, win over McCool Junction.
Hoins ripped eight kills against the Mustangs and Mick added four terminations.  Yantzie tallied 15 assists.
Grote and Mick both belted four ace serves and Mosier added two more aces.  Schardt paced the Eagle defense with eight digs and Mosier added four digs.
"Our aggressive serving kept them from getting any offense going," Sorge said.  "We passed well to run an effective offense."
Up next on October 18 was a match against No. 3-seeded Meridian.  BDS fell to Meridian 25-17, 25-18, in play at the York City Auditorium.
Mick slammed eight kills against the Mustangs and Elznic added three terminations.  Yantzie posted 11 ace sets.  Schardt ripped three ace serves and Mosier added a pair of aces.
Grote paced the Eagle defense with 11 digs and both Hoins and Elznic added seven digs.  Troyer added two ace blocks in the loss.

"Our lack of communication lead to a very inconsistent match of ball handling," Sorge said. "This kept us from putting any pressure on their defense with any offensive attacks."
