Moments, later a spike by Karissa Wilcoxson whittled the Roughrider’s lead to 24-22. Yet, Roosevelt managed to get the next point to win the game by a slim 25-22 margin. Despite the loss, the girls did an excellent job using their athleticism to induce long volleys, offering an effective counterbalance to the Roughriders’ power advantage with effort-driven saves that kept the ball in play. The second game stayed tight early at one point the game was tied at 5. Once again, the Roughriders ripped off three straight points to take an 8-5 lead.

Bulldog spikers sweep Patriots, fall to Nighthawks
We were hoping to be more of an aggressive force and really push the match, said the coach. We played well, but we didnt quite have a really aggressive match against Del Norte. The Bulldogs had implemented a rotation defense in response to Del Nortes Oct. 9 league victory. We played well, and the new defense handled why they beat us last time, Halfaker said. It did correct what happened last time, but we just werent quite as aggressive as we needed to be to create points for ourselves. The loss to Del Norte left Ramona with a 3-3 league record and a 17-9 overall mark.

Bulldog Mile gets West York students active
(Jason Plotkin – Daily Record/Sunday News) Anthony Campbell, a seventh-grade social studies teacher and the activities director, said the run raises money for the school’s fitness center and also promotes physical fitness and activity. This year’s event raised at least $1,000, though the final amount was still being tallied Friday afternoon. The Bulldog Mile has become part of the middle school culture, Campbell said, and has grown over the years. Students who are into running get pretty competitive. “They definitely do talk it up,” he said.
