Robyn Bowman finished with 88 assists and Lexi Groe was dominant with 44 kills. Those two led a plethora of Bulldog players who performed very well Saturday.

“Individually, we have some incredible talent with some kids who love to work hard,” Boehmer said. “But now our focus will shift to trying to win the Top of Iowa Conference. We have two tough matches left — North Iowa and Forest City — so we need to have a good week of practice.”

The Bulldogs are still perfect on the year — 62-0 in sets and 28-0 overall.

Lake Mills will host North Iowa Tuesday night for senior night.

Start time for the match is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
