Broncos no match for Lady Huskies; Bobcats swept by Guffey’s girls
Mammoth Volleyball was back at it against Bishop last week, after splitting the last matchup with a JV loss and a Varsity win. This time, both teams prevailed.
JV was able to take the win after a 3-set match, and Varsity took the win in 5 sets.

The Lady Huskies dropped the first game 20-25, but picked up the next 25-19. Bishop rallied back to claim game three 15-25, but the Huskies held on in games four and five, 25-19 and 15-9 to close out the match.
Amanda Kirkeby got in 10 digs and 2 aces, Jessie Harris busily racked up 9 digs, 1 assist, 9 kills, 10 blocks and an ace, Kristen Sigmen got in 12 digs, 3 kills, 3 blocks and 2 aces, Sydney Knadler posted 3 digs, 5 kills, 2 blocks and an ace, Cassidy Morris logged 34 big assists, 2 kills and 2 aces, Kelly Berger killed it with 10 digs, 10 kills, 2 aces, Bailey Rowan got in 2 kills and a block, and Jolene Senn picked up a dig and 2 kills.
