Spartans dig in against Blanchet

PASKI GYMNASIUM — The Spartans swatted Bishop Blanchet in varsity girls volleyball 25-10, 25-19, 25-12 in a Metro League matchup at home Tuesday.

The Braves were the biggest threat Bainbridge faced on the court this week, however.

Instead, it was some sort of bug that ran through the BHS roster.

“There’s something going around,” said Spartan Coach Julie Miller.

She said her team played well, despite it all.

“Considering that we were having girls the day before not being able to practice because they were busy and sick — and one of my players had to go off the court and throw up in a garbage can — and myself not feeling well, I thought they did a pretty good job,” she said.

The Spartans did an impressive job of keeping the ball in play. The team amassed nearly 100 digs during play against Blanchet.

Emma Burgess led the team with 36 digs.

Lauren Sheehan added 22 digs and 12 kills for BHS, while Hannah Wagner had 17 digs and five kills.

Teammate Kyra Easley collected 12 digs and five kills, while Emilia Dronkert contributed 11 digs and 21 assists.

Riley Kulfan finished with four blocks for the Spartans.

“We did have a lot of digs,” Miller said, thanks to Blanchet.

“They kept the ball a lot and it kept coming back,” she said.

“Both teams were pretty scrappy and got a lot of balls up.”

The Spartans resume play on Tuesday, Oct. 1 against Lakeside at home. Varsity play begins at 6 p.m.
