Bainbridge-Guilford challenged for a league championship last year, and has perhaps the most dynamic player in the league, senior Morgan Bullis, along with fellow senior hitter Tierney Decker to lead this year’s attack. Bullock has proven an all-around threat as a hitter, setter, server, and defender.
Bullock will work in more of a setter’s role this year with last year’s setter, expected to return, forgoing her final season due to a work commitment.
Four other players also return from last season, and will move from reserve to key roles. Cadi Barber will help out with setting, hitting, and defense; seniors Ashlyn Decker and Lindsey Castle will add to the hitting; and sophomore Camille Hawkins gives the Bobcats options up front as an ambidextrous hitter.
At libero is exchange student Lizzie Guis, and Oxford transfer, Montessa Warner, will see time as a defensive specialist.
Newcomers to the program are seniors Autumn Trask, Allysa Ostrander, and Meghan Hopkins, who played volleyball at lower levels. “It should be an interesting year, and I look forward to a lot of hard work,” said B-G’s longtime coach, Pam Tompkins. “I also look forward to seeing how these ladies improve over the season.”
