While on the road Tuesday, the Emery High Spartans reminded the Gunnison Bulldogs why the team has managed to notch six wins out of nine matches thus far in the young team’s 2016 season.
The 2016 team is made up of two seniors and four juniors with ten sophomores and eight freshman rounding out the Lady Spartans.
The blend of veteran as well as new players, however, didn’t stop Emery from digging deep Tuesday and walking away victorious after sweeping the competition in three games.
The Lady Spartans took all three games, making sure the Bulldogs never put one up and finished the matchup 3-0.
The Emery volleyball team’s travels are far from over. The team will take on Manti on Thursday at the Templars’ home, after which a two-week break will give the team a chance to prepare for Sept. 22’s match against long-time rivals the Lady Dinos. Matches will start at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m., respectively.
