Last week the Kimberly High School volleyball team hosted the district tournament and took on rival Filer High School twice during tournament play. The ladies played Filer on Tuesday and won three sets to one to advance to the championship match.

The next day, on Wednesday, Oct. 18, The Bulldogs played the Wildcats once again. Kimberly won the first two sets, dropped the third, but came back to claim the fourth and wrap up yet another district championship. The win assured the Bulldogs a spot in the state tournament, which begins Friday, Oct. 27, at Coeur d’Alene High School in Northern Idaho.

One member of the varsity volleyball team said, “I felt really good they have been working hard all year and really deserved to win.”

Another was asked about playing Filer so many times during the year and she said, “It got rough at the end and felt repetitive, but they were not going to give up and kept pushing to win.”

One more girl stated, “Snake River if going to be our best competition this year with them being the only team we have lost to, but we are ready to win.” 

The volleyball team has worked really hard this year and feels very confident going to the state. Good luck Bulldogs!

Kimberly takes on South Fremont at noon to begin state tournament action.
