The Lady Bulldogs showed why they are the two time defending district champs Tuesday night, defeating 46th District rival Mercer County, 3-0.
“We played with as much confidence and enthusiasm than we have any game all year long,” said Burgin head coach Maggie McKnight.
Granted, it’s only the Lady Bulldogs third game of the season, but it was also their most dominant performance, not dropping a match and out scoring their opponent more than two to one through the three games.
Randi Burke’s game high eight kills were as many as the Lady Titans team total with Lady Bulldog teammate Summer Burke earning a season high 25 assists.
But as well as the Lady Bulldog’s performed, Mercer head coach David Sullivan felt his team’s performance had just as much to do with the lopsided match.
“This was our worst game of the season by far,” said Sullivan. “We continued to spot them leads to open the match and were never able to be competitive after that.”
Mercer fell into 4-0 holes in all the games and were never able to claw their way back in the match with Burgin winning by and average of more than 14 points, 25-11, 25-8, 25-13.
While Sullivan was frustrated with his team’s performance, he understands it’s still early in the season.
