After a strong showing at the Chico Tournament over the weekend, the Boyd Yellowjackets continued to show their rapid growth on the floor Tuesday.
Boyd swept cross-county rival Bridgeport on the road 25-13, 25-11, 25-14.
Senior middle blocker Maddie Busch put down 15 kills for the Lady Yellowjackets, who have won three of their last four matches to improve to 8-7 on the year.
Kayleigh Pappajohn and Morgan Abbott recorded eight kills each. Baylie Harris doled out 16 assists and Abbott nine.
Pappajohn was also tough on Bridgeport at the service line, serving up five aces.
Defensively for Boyd, Busch and Lindey Chancellor made four blocks. Britney Howard had seven digs.
Sadie White led Bridgeport with three kills. Ally Raby, Kendall Scott and Kensley Turner had two each.
Ryhan Read handed out four assists.
Mariah Levy made eight digs against Boyd’s frontline.
“Mariah Levy did a terrific job and is emerging as a great defensive leader,” said Bridgeport coach Rebekah Cummings.
Taylor Stone and Turner finished with seven digs. Read and Raby had six apiece.
Bridgeport fell to 3-13, but Cummings found some positives in her young team’s play.
“We did a good job of rebounding from our performance this weekend we just didn’t finish rallies,” she said. “We did a better job of fighting for point, we just didn’t use a lot of strategy. But we came out with more energy and we can definitely build on that, moving forward.”
