"Our setters did a great job allowing our hitters to have multiple options on their hits, and our defense was quick and responsive, so when we have all that put together we are able to stay on the offensive side of the game,” added Coles.

Rough week for Lady Dawgs
It was a tough week for the varsity Lady Bulldogs who dropped two matches to Fredericksburg and Bandera. On Tuesday Burnet hosted the Lady Billies and came up short in three games, 17-25, 21-25, and 12-25.
On Friday they traveled to Bandera and fell in four, 9-25, 25-20, 21-25, 11-25. No other information was available on these games.
The JV girls also lost two matched last week. They were defeated by Fredericksburg on Tuesday 14-25, 25-16, 18-25, and Bandera on Friday, 25-18, 23-25, 21-25.
The freshman volleyball team defeated Fredericksburg on Tuesday in two games, 25-15, 25-19. "We started out the match with some great intensity and team work,” said coach Brent Kelley.
"The scrappiness in which we played dictated what Fredericksburg was able to do. We dug and blocked their attacks which I’m sure frustrated them, in turn causing them to make errors. We had to tweak our line-up just a bit but the girls adjusted great. Again, I’m proud of how we are improving every time we step on the court,” added Kelley.
Like their older counterparts the freshman had a tough time against Bandera on Friday. The girls lost in three, 16-25, 25-21, 23-25.
On Friday, Sept. 13 the freshman volleyball team traveled to Wimberley and came home with a great win, 20-25, 26-24, 25-20. "As you can see from the scores this was a tough match. All three sets went back and forth. We played scrappy and smart and made plays when we needed them. We needed all 11 girls stepping up and they did,” said Kelley.

Llano beats Glen Rose, faces Porcupines next

Volleyball in the hunt
Burnet’s varsity Lady Bulldog volleyball team improved their chances at a spot in the playoffs with two big district wins last week. The victories moved the girls 8-3A record to 4-3 with three games left as of Friday. All three of those are road games and are against opponents that Burnet lost to in the first round.
Three teams from the district will advance to the playoffs and as of presstime Liberty Hill and Gatesville were leading the way. Brownwood and Lampasas are pretty much out of the mix so that leaves Burnet and Llano fighting for the third spot if the second round finishes out like the first.
The Lady Dawgs final district game will be played at Llano on Tuesday, Oct. 23. Now if Burnet beat Liberty Hill this past Tuesday, or if they can beat Gatesville on Friday and Llano falls to both of them then it would certainly help the Lady Dawgs.
