2011 Lady Bulldogs are young but talented

August 8, 2011

Entering the 2011 season, the Borger Lady Bulldog volleyball team returns four players off last year’s regional semi-final team. For many programs, the loss of so many players would lead to a rebuilding phase as younger players adjust to the varsity level. However for the Lady Bulldogs, a good amount of talent is coming up the pipeline which should form a team able to make a playoff run come October.
In 2010, the Lady Bulldogs reached the 3A Regional Semi-Finals for the second time in five years setting the tone for a good off-season.
