Volleyball team wins one; loses one

This article submitted by Courtney Karsch on 9/15/99.

Volleyball The Bulldogs were ahead the whole volleyball contest against Maple Lake. They made some really great plays, communicated well, and played as a team.

Jenni Mayer and Tanya Lieser spike the ball over the net at last Tuesday's match against Maple Lake.

The first game was close with a score of Paynesville 15 and Maple Lake 10.

The Bulldogs knew that if they wanted to win in three games, they would have to pick up the pace and play hard. That is what they did. They ended up winning the last two games as well.

The Bulldogs and Coach Mayer were really pleased with the way the team played and now have a record of 1-0 in the conference.
