Eagles Fall To Friend In Sub-district VB Final

Bruning-Davenport/Shickley gave top-seeded Friend all it wanted and more last Tuesday night in the finals of the D1-2 Sub-district at Fillmore Central High School.  In fact, the Eagles could have potentially swept the Bulldogs if they had captured the second set, which was certainly within their grasp.
In the end, Friend prevailed 19-25, 26-24, 16-25, 25-19, 15-7 in another rivalry battle in Geneva.  The Bulldogs moved on the District Final with a season mark of 22-8, while BDS ended its 2014 campaign at 16-12.  The Eagles got the year off to a slow start but were certainly playing their best volleyball at the end.
Both Jaycie Hoins and Catherine Mick belted 15 kills against the Bulldogs.  Carley Elznic added nine kills and McKenna Schardt ripped eight kills.  Madison Yantzie posted 45 ace sets.
Tristen Mosier cracked five ace serves against Friend and Schardt added three ace serves.  Schardt also paced the Eagle defense with 47 digs.  Elznic tallied 37 digs.
Mick recorded six ace blocks in the match and Kristin Troyer added three ace blocks in the loss.
"We came out and played aggressive in the first and third games and had a chance to win the match," BDS coach Dan Sorge said.  "Our serve receive and ball handling failed to get us into our offense and allowed Friend to become the more aggressive team and earn the win."
The Eagles advanced to the sub-district final with a four-set win over second-seeded Heartland on Monday, November 3, in Geneva.
Seniors on this years' squad included Troyer and Hoins and Logan Rosenquist, Johanna Kluck and Rio Mohrmann.
