NYSSA – The Bulldogs are on a winning streak in volleyball, boasting sweeps of Umatilla and Riverside last week and defeating Irrigon 3-1 in another match.

Coach Maddie Speelman credits team bonding for the Bulldogs’ recent success. 

“We also came up with a game plan and practiced our game plan during practices over and over. That is what won our game against Irrigon,” Speelman said. 

At last Saturday’s match against Irrigon, the Bulldogs led the first two sets, which both ended in 25-21, before slipping in the third set by five points. They came back in the fourth set, winning 25-14.

The win came after the Bulldogs easily overpowered Umatilla Friday, Oct . . .
