The Bainbridge volleyball team lost to Seattle Prep, which took fourth at state last season, Thursday by the scores of 16-25, 30-28, 19-25 and 11-25 but scored one of its biggest victories in years Tuesday by defeating last year’s defending state champs Bishop Blanchet at Blanchet by the scores of 18-25, 15-25, 25-19, 26-24 and 15-13.
It’s the first time since 2005 that the Spartans have defeated the Braves. Miller also said the JV team and the JV-B team (what they call the C team) won as well.
“We made a few changes to our defense in order to combat their outside hitters who were getting most of their sets,” Miller said. “The girls did a great job of sticking to the plan. Everyone contributed and in the end we were able to pull out the win.”
Nina Mutty had 10 kills while Sarah Dacquisto had five kills and 11 digs. Erin Kinney had 17 assists while Emma Burgess had 13 digs. Kat Frickleton had four blocks while Lauren Easley had five aces.
