The Bunceton Lady Dragons volleyball team prevailed in three sets last Thursday against Chilhowee by the scores of 18-25, 25-17 and 28-26.
Bunceton coach Dustin Ray said the girls showed what kind of team they can be. “An all out team win after losing the first set,” Ray said. “We played with a ton of energy, and passion. Hopefully after picking up our second win in a row we can come out with the same intensity each match from here on out.”

Ashlyn Twenter had two kills on 12 attack attempts along with nine service points with two aces and one dig.

In the JV match, Bunceton again won in three sets 25-16, 15-25 and 15-6.
Coach Ray said this match was a roller coaster of emotions and mistakes. “At times we made all of the plays we were supposed to, and at times we made every mistake possible,” Ray said. “The girls saw a victory was possible and let their emotions get to them in set 2, but bounced back for the final set. Good win for our JV program.”
