On Oct. 20 the Paynesville Bulldogs traveled to St. Cloud to compete in a competitive game against St. Cloud Cathedral.
As the evening went on, the Bulldogs were playing their hardest and kept the competition high. With two wins on the scoreboard, the Bulldogs were at battle with the warriors for their first five match game and hopefully a win. The first match was a difficult one but the Bulldogs hung in there until the game was over. With sad looks on the senior faces, the Bulldogs had to go home with a loss. But they went home with their heads hanging high and proud.
Leading the team in hits against Cathedral was Laura Mages with 51 out of 52 hits with 12 aces. Close behind was Tanya Lieser with 44 out of 53 hits and nine aces. Steph Krupke did very well on setting. She made her goal this year by having more than 30 assists and delivered 31 that night. Way to go Steph!!!
