The Bunceton Lady Dragons volleyball team fell in three sets Tuesday night at home against the Russellville Indians 15-25, 13-25 and 12-25.

The Lady Dragons, dropping to 0-4 on the season, will host the Calvary Lutheran Lions in a conference match on Thursday, Sept. 24th starting at 6 p.m.

Bunceton coach Dustin Ray said the loss to Russellville was disappointing because he honestly felt like the team should have won the match. “We blew a 11-3 lead in the first set, which is very frustrating,” Ray said. “Again, we were missing girls and had to play people out of their rotation, but I didn’t think it would have the impact it did in the game. We had some really good volleys and kept ourselves in the game for a bit, but overall couldn’t cover the spread.”

Madison Brown led the Lady Dragons with seven service points with three aces along with one kill on four attack attempts, one block and one dig.

Bella Vaca finished the match with nine assists and three service points while Alyssa Welch added four digs, two kills and one service point, Madelynn Myers with three digs, two attack attempts and one service point, Lexi Hein with four digs and two attack attempts, Kelcy Mullett with two service points and two digs, Maddie Brandes with four attack attempts and one block and Hailey Milne with two attack attempts and one dig.
