Head Coach Kim Culliton said, “Both matches this week were a slower start than the Bulldogs prefer, so we’ll be working hard to improve on that. We are at that mid-point of the season where we need to push to become more mentally and physically tough, so that will be our focus for the next few weeks.”
Next up for Bellevue, on Monday, Oct. 22, the Bulldogs host the Whatcom Orcas. Game time is 7:00 p.m. in the Bellevue gym. Also, at this match, the Bulldogs continue with their participation in “Dig Pink,” a nationwide fundraising event throughout the month of October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Donations will be accepted at the remaining two home games for BC and will benefit the American Cancer Society. The Bulldogs volleyball team is wearing pink headbands and ribbons to show their support. Please join us!
