    “We missed 10 serves in the first two games—that’s enough to turn those game around,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. “I just think it’s lack of concentration.

    “We also had a lot of errors at the net—things I felt like we killed ourselves on. But we came back and played pretty well the third and fourth games.”

    No statistics were available for the Bulldogs. They are usually kept by players on the bench, but the Bulldogs took only 12 players and played varsity and junior varsity matches at the same time, so every Bulldog player was always on the court.

    The Bulldogs went 1-2 in the junior varsity tourney.
