Bulldogs volleyball team continues domination on the court

The Lake Mills volleyball team continued its dominant streak Tuesday night when it hosted Garner-Hayfield-Ventura.

The Bulldogs cruised to a win over the Cardinals in three sets: 25-7, 25-21, 25-10.

“We came out strong and did a lot of nice things,” said head coach Jim Boehmer. “Jessa Gasteiger had an amazing night for us. Six kills, 34 assists and ten aces serves in 26 attempts without a miss. If she makes her serve, it will be difficult to deal with. Her number of aces and ace serves per set are some of the best numbers in Iowa.”

On top of Gasteiger’s great performance, the Bulldogs were also stellar from the front row. Sophomore Kylie Greenfield had 17 kills on the night and senior Hannah Hanson had eight. Senior Megan Fails blocked four kill attempts and junior Olivia Moen blocked two.

“I thought our front row did a nice job tonight,” Boehmer said. “We hit very well out of the front row. We were less consistent with our back row attacks tonight, however.  Usually we do a better job adjusting when swinging out of the back row. We will be okay, we just need to work on making little adjustments.”

The Bulldogs move to 13-3 on the season and 5-0 in the Top of Iowa Conference. They will be back on the court Saturday at a tournament in Forest City.
