Bulldog volleyball team sweeps Escambia, Tate

Published: Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 02:52 PM.

Tate used a quick attack at the net in taking the first set.

However, once the Bulldog players adjusted to the faster Aggie tempo, Crestview (5-0, 1-0) was able to swing things in its favor.

“We came out flat in the first game and we just had to pick it up,” Combest said. “I was glad to see them coming back and really getting down (to business against Tate).”

Adams led an early charge in serve as the Bulldogs opened the second set with a 7-0 run. A Middleton kill put an exclamation point on the outburst and Crestview.

But Tate refused to go away as the Aggies battled back to tie the set a 13-13 and again at 16-16. Three quick Bulldog points pushed the Crestview lead to 19-16.

Crestview finally put the set away on back-to-back kills by Middleton and Pase.

The Bulldogs jumped to a 9-1 lead in the third set and were never challenged as they pulled away to the easiest win of the match.
