BATAVIA – The Batavia girls volleyball team’s senior night was spoiled by a dominant opponent, as Waubonsie Valley rolled on Thursday night, 25-12, 25-14.
“Very surprising in some ways, but what can you do?” Batavia coach Lori Trippi-Payne said. “Waubsonie was on. There’s a reason why they’re ranked, that’s for certain.”
Audrey Faulhaber (14 assists, two kills), Shea Stanley (six kills), Maddie Jaudon (10 digs) and Shea Thayer (three blocks) paced the Bulldogs (19-16).
“For whatever reason, we have not done well at home this year, and I don’t know why that is,” Trippi-Payne said. “I’m pretty happy to be going on the road, and hopefully we’re going to pick up where we left off Tuesday and last weekend, and just go from there.”
