After a rocky start to their season, the Lady Dogies have been working hard on cleaning up aspects of their game. A renewed focus on blocking, digging and serve-receive skills, coupled with players who are versatile, seems to be serving the ladies well.
Though the squad went 0-2 on the weekend against the Wheatland Lady Bulldogs and the Lady Bison of Buffalo, co-head coach Candi Stanton is liking what she is seeing from her crew. In Friday evening’s home matchup against Wheatland, the Lady Dogies took the contest to five sets, which is something that hasn’t happened in a while.
“We came out fighting against Wheatland, and won a hard fought, back-and-forth match one, 26-24,” Stanton grinned. “Then we laid low for sets two and three, but came back to win the fourth one when it really mattered.”
