Great week for Lady bears...

The JV Lady Bears had a very successful week in competition last week! They started out on Monday defeating a very tough Stockton team 25-16, 26-24. On Thursday we traveled to University Academy and won that Conference match 25-16, 25-12. Lilli Colburn led the charge with 16 service points, with 4 of them aces. On Saturday the girls competed in the Adrian JV Tournament. In pool play we won all 3 matches, beating Drexel 25-13, 25-13, Lakeland 25-21, 25-16, and Osceola 25-12, 25-23. They moved on to play the 2nd place finisher from the other pool, which was Archie. We were victorious over them 25-17, 25-19. This qualified us to play for the Championship! We played our host school and arch rivals--the Adrian Blackhawks. Sadly we lost 2 hard fought close games 23-25, 24-26 placing 2nd!. Lilli Colburn led all Butler scorers with 37 points on the day with 10 aces, Jayde Eidson had 26 points -2 aces, and both Hunter Ward and Olivia Fischer had 12 points. Alicen Beckley led the team at the net having many crucial downed spikes and tip kills. 

I am very proud of this team and their effort and hard work! We are now 17-3 for the season with 3 matches remaining. Please congratulate these girls on their 2nd place finish if you see them!
