Spikers back on track/Kickers lose to Blanchet 4-0

Spikers back on track

After a poor showing against Central Kitsap, volleyball head coach Julie Miller made some lineup and offensive changes.

“We’re still getting used to it, but for the most part, it’s worked really well,” she said.

The changes helped Bainbridge to a good showing at the Auburn Invitational last weekend, then in sweeps over Rainier Beach Tuesday by the scores of 25-5, 25-15 and 25-11 and West Seattle Thursday by the scores of 25-13, 25-18 and 25-10.

Against the Wildcats, Kelcey Dunaway finished with 17 kills, three blocks and six digs while Hillary Grant finished with 11 digs and two aces.

Becky Gottlieb had eight digs and three aces.

“We’re more comfortable with this lineup and it’s getting Kelcey a lot more attempts (at kills),” Miller said. “Before, she was getting five attempts but now (against West Seattle) she got 25.”

The Spartans will be without Dominique Atherley, who injured her knee in the Rainier Beach game.

She’s out for a week.

The Spartans host Holy Names next Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Kickers lose to Blanchet 4-0

The Bainbridge girls soccer team couldn’t get anything going against Bishop Blanchet Thursday, losing 4-0 at home.

“I take full responsibility for this one,” head coach Scott Druker said. “I didn’t get them ready to play.

Maddy Mercier scored two goals for the Braves.

Bainbridge played Nathan Hale yesterday. They play West Seattle at home on Tuesday at 5:15 p.m.
