Following a sweep of its own quadrangular tournament to open the season, the Boyceville girls’ volleyball squad took to the road for matches at a pair of Cloverbelt conference schools last week.
After sweeping Owen-Withee on its home court Tuesday, September 1 in three games, the Lady Bulldogs were able to win two of three matches in the Fall Creek quadrangular just two days later on September 3 beating Owen-Withee once again and Chetek-Weyerhaeuser two games to none before dropping a pair to the host Crickets.
The results saw Boyceville’s current record improve to 6-1 through the first two weeks of the 2015 volleyball season. The girls will have an opportunity to add some more wins to that tally this week when they host Amery in a non-conference tilt Thursday, September 10 and at an invitational in Cadott on Saturday, September 12 . The Bulldogs will open Dunn-St. Croix conference play next Tuesday, September 15 at home against Mondovi.
The trip to Owen-Withee High school September 1 may have lasted longer than the match itself.
Boyceville swept Owen-Withee in three straight games to win the match. The first two games against the Blackhawks were close but the Bulldogs prevailed 25-23 and 25-20. In the third set, the Lady Bulldogs jumped out to a 17-2 advantage en route to a 25-13 victory for the match win.
In Fall Creek just two days later, Boyceville would open quad play against Owen-Withee. Like their first meeting, the Bulldogs took game one 25-23 and followed it with a 25-18 win in the second game to take the match.
The middle match was a battle of the Bulldogs as Boyceville faced off against Chetek-Weyerhaeuser. In another close first set, Boyceville prevailed 25-21 and then took the match with a 25-14 victory in the second set.
In a final round match of unbeatens, Boyceville took on host Fall Creek.
The Bulldogs were stunned 25-9 in the first set as the Crickets Whitney Folkers served 13 winners in the lopsided win for the hosts.
Boyceville regained its footing in the second and played much better only to come up short in a 26-28 loss to Fall Creek which took its own quad title.
