The Lady Buckaroos are one step closer to making a deep playoff run following Tuesday night's win over Bowie 25-14, 25-11, 25-11 in the Bi-District round of the State 2A playoffs.
Head Coach Victoria Dudgeon said that a strong start really helped the team come out with the win.
“I am really proud of the way our kids came out,” said Dudgeon. “They were fired up and ready to go and most of that is credited to how hard they worked in practice the past week.”
“We were able to serve tough and keep them out of system,” said Dudgeon. “We struggled at times blocking because they were trying to go through hands and tool us, but I think our kids adjusted really well and limited their ability to tool.”
The Lady Bucks opened the first set with a 9-3 scoring run and never looked back.
Breckenridge scored 16 points to Bowie's 11 to win set one 25-14.
Set two saw the Lady Bucks jump out to a 5-1 lead, but Bowie was able to come back to get to within three points at 10-7.
