The BCC Bulldogs beat the Shoreline Community College Dolphins 3-0 in volleyball on Oct. 29.
“It was a good, solid win,” said coach Kim Werkau. “A little sloppier than we’re used to. Shoreline had interesting plays; we had to scrap.”
The game started out competitively, each team scored alternatively within seconds of each other. The first set ended 25-20. Many of the Bulldogs’ points resulted from Dolphins’ errors.
Werkau said Kady Bieber and Patti Reeves did very well. Bieber is the team’s outside hitter, and Reeves is their libero. “Kady hit very aggressively. Patti is the best defensive player. She did a good job.”
“We didn’t play to our potential, [we were] kind of dead,” said Reeves. “The other team kept battling, but when you win, you always enjoy it. We have to improve for our competition; the other teams are going to be a lot harder.” Reeves said that all they can expect is to keep improving for this season.
“We played alright, but there are lots of areas of improvement,” said Beiber, “Maintaining a high level of competition and keeping up our excitement are our main areas of focus. The other team showed a lot of heart.”
Beiber had the highest attack percentage in the whole game with 70 percent.
Reeves made the most defensive digs in the entire game; 13 in all. The most digs for the Shoreline Dolphins came from setter Katrina Perez with seven.
The Dolphins’ highest attack percentage came from Tahayla Ray with 11.1 percent.
The Bulldogs are third in the division, with a record of 7-2 for the season. Shoreline is in fifth place, with a record of 2-7.
