The Bulldogs volleyball team continues to hold fourth place in the Caribou Trail League after winning a match against Tonasket and losing one against Brewster last week.

The girls traveled to Tonasket on Oct. 2 for their game against Tonasket. The Tigers serves and net play weren't enough to take away points from the Bulldogs. The first set was the most challenging for the girls but they pulled it together to win 25-19.

In the second set, the Bulldogs played smoothly as they continued to get kill after kill and had a small amount of serving errors. The girls won the second set 25-9.

"This was a good game. These girls played to dominate," said Cashmere Head Coach, Sharmen Dye.

The third set proved to be another solid effort against the Tigers as the Bulldogs finished of the match 25-12.

Junior Michelle Pinckney went 100 percent for serves putting 21 successfully over the net and in play.

"Everyone really played nice," Dye said. "I would say Michelle Pinckney led us to the win with her serving and aggressive play at the net."

Captain Kaylee Caudill was another leader on the team with 10 kills and putting 9-of-10 serves in play. Teammate Carrie O'Donnell had two kills for the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs setters also had great stats. Lisa Cunning had 17 assists and Tawnie Petterborg finished the match with 15 assists.

On Oct. 4, the girls continued their momentum in the first set against the Brewster Bears at home.

Pinckney was unable to play due to illness which changed the starting line up for the girls. After scoring the first point of the first set, Brewster took away the next five points and seemed to be on a roll. The Bulldogs started to play smarter and found holes in the opposing teams defense to tie up the score 6-6.

The Bulldogs continued to keep up with the Bears but didn't take back the lead until the score was 14-13 Cashmere. The Bears took the lead once again near the end of the game when the score was 20-17 Brewster.

Caudill pumped up the girls and O'Donnell put Cashmere only one point behind the Bears after she smashed the ball in between the defense's middle and left back players. Brewster made a mistake on their side of the net to tie up the score again 20-20.

Caudill served an ace to put Cashmere in the lead 21-20. Two Cashmere net players dominated a block by placing it on the other side of the net to make it 22-20. The girls finally took away the win after the Bears made another mistake on their side of the net. The first set ended 25-22 Cashmere.

The girls continued to play tough in the second set but were unable to get a lead in the score. At one point the girls kept making errors giving the Bears an 8-point lead. Dye called a timeout attempt to refocus the girls. The girls continued to fight for the win but eventually lost the second set 25-18.

"We really wanted to win tonight," Dye said. "It was our last chance to win against Brewster for the season."

The Bulldogs weren't going to give up easy as they continued to block Brewster hits. The entire third set was back to back scoring but eventually the Bears finished the set 25-22.

The fourth and final set went into overtime after the Bulldogs came back after a large point spread. However, it wasn't enough to beat the Bears. Brewster won the fourth set 26-24.

"I liked that the girls battled and came back from a pretty big point spread in the last set. They dug into their reserves for sure, to take the Bears to 26. Good game to watch, both teams battled," Dye said. "We had way too many errors this game."

Cunning went 7-for-7 on serves with one kill and 23 assists. Middle hitter Corine Turner covered the net well with 10 kills.

Senior Roslyn Green went 14-for-15 on serves and had three kills. O'Donnell had nine kills.

Caudill finished the game with a total of 16 kills and went 10-for-11 for serves.

The Bulldogs played Quincy at home on Tuesday but results were unavailable at press time. The next game will be at Okanogan on Oct. 11. The girls are now 3-3 for CTL play.
