Baker volleyball team keeps rolling

Published: Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 09:24 PM.

Baker and Freeport briefly traded the first four points in the first set, as the score was tied 2-2. With Alex Roy in serve the Gators scored six unanswered points to take control of the set.

Not that the Gators needed any help, but the Bulldogs were their own worst enemies in the Baker run as they gave up five points on double hits or net violations.

Roy capped the run with an ace, but then gave Freeport a point and the ball with a service error. A kill by Chloe Abney for Freeport cut the Gator lead to 8-4, but that would be as close as the Bulldogs would get in the set.

Katie Wickery was in serve in the second set as Baker broke a 4-4 tie with a six-point run that basically put the set out of reach.

An already thin Freeport team suffered another big blow with Baker leading 8-4 when Abney injured her left knee as she landed awkwardly after an attempted kill.

After Abney’s injury injury-riddled Bulldogs seem to have their spirit broken as they limped to the finish of the set and the match.

Savannah Risen was in serve in set three as the Gators jumped to a 5-0 lead and never looked back. A Risen service error gave the Bulldogs their first point of the set. Haley Wagner then matched Risen’s efforts as Baker scored five-straight points with Wagner in serve.
