Eagles Fly High In Beatrice

In a battle of the Top 2 rated teams in Class D-1 and D-2, Bruning-Davenport/Shickley swept 12-2, Class D-1 Johnson-Brock 25-21, 25-21 to win the A Division crown at the 2018 MUDECAS Volleyball Tournament.  The Eagles are now 9-1 and No. 1 in wildcard points in Class D-2.
BDS head coach Kari Jo Alfs noted her squad didn't drop a set all week in MUDECAS play despite playing three quality teams.
Regan Alfs slammed seven kills in the MUDECAS final and both Macy Kamler and Jadyn Kleinschmidt had three terminations.  Alfs and Kleinschmidt were named All-tournament First Team for their play in Beatrice.  Kamler and Jordan Bolter were given Honorable Mention.
Alfs belted four ace serves against J-B and Sera Johnson had three.  Bolte posted eight assists and Alfs had seven.  Kleinschmidt smacked two ace serves and paced the defense with 12 digs.  Kamler had six digs and two blocks.  Alfs had three blocks and Emilie Schardt had two.
"The girls came out ready to play as this would be their only opportunity to see J-B this year since we dropped to D-2," Kari Jo Alfs said.  "Our serving game was a huge factor for us tonight, as we did not miss any serves but still served aggressive enough to chalk up 11 ace serves against a very tough squad.  I am very proud of the girls, as they work hard as a team and play for each other...the girls continued to take care of business tonight."
To get to Thursday's final, BDS defeated Class C-2, 11-3 Freeman 25-21, 25-20.
Kleinschmidt nailed seven kills against the Falcons and Alfs had six.  Kamler added five terminations.  Alfs tallied 11 ace sets and Bolte had seven.  Kleinschmidt nailed three ace serves and Caitlin Mosier smacked two.
Kamler paced the Eagle defense with two blocks and seven digs.  Schardt recorded a pair of ace blocks as well.  Kleinschmidt had four digs and Bolte tallied three.
"We got off to a good start tonight behind the serving of Caitlin Mosier—she got us off to a big start with two aces and four points," Alfs said.  "It was a total team effort tonight, as all the girls played significant roles.  Jadyn and Macy did a great job serve receiving, allowing our setters to distribute the ball around.  Regan and Jordan made great decisions as setters as to what to do with the ball.  Sera Johnson served well in the second set and Emilie and Macy had huge blocks in the second set to help put the game away."
BDS began MUDECAS play with a 25-20, 25-14 win over H-TR-S.
Alfs smashed eight kills in the win and Kleinschmidt had five.  Kamler nailed four.  Kleinschmidt and Kamler both had two ace serves.  Alfs put up 10 assists and Bolte had nine.
Kamler paced the defense with 10 digs.  Mosier had nine digs for the winners.  Bolte had five.  Alfs recorded an ace block.
"I think we started off a little sluggish," said Alfs of her team's first game in Beatrice.  "Our serve receive was a lot better tonight and our setters did a nice job of distributing the ball around.  Once the girls got settled in, they took control.  Macy did a nice job from the service line in the second set scoring seven straight to put us up 13-6.  The girls went ahead and finished strong."
