Late-week 4-AAA sweep follows pair of ‘tough’ losses for VolleyDogs


After a hot start to the season, the Bearden VolleyDogs have cooled off as of late, but wins over South Doyle and Sevier County to end the week hope to get Bearden rejuvenated.

After losing to both Maryville and Heritage Tuesday, Sept. 12 at Heritage High School and Webb at home Wednesday, Sept. 13, the VolleyDogs were in dire need of a winning day Thursday.

“We lost a real tough one to Heritage and a real tough one to Webb and we didn’t play very well against Maryville,” Bearden head coach Jennifer Allen said.

After struggling early in the week with passing, the Volleydogs adjusted and pulled out wins versus South Doyle and Sevier County, Thursday, Sept. 14, at Farragut High School.

“We haven’t been passing the ball very well but we passed the ball a little bit better this week,” Allen said. “Brianna Rittenhouse stepped her game up a little bit better on Thursday and our passers, Rachel Menhinick and Lindsay Granger, seemed to step up as the week went on.”

With nearly 30 games played already this season, including three tournaments, the VolleyDogs (19-10 overall record entering the week) have had a very active season. Allen feels that the surplus of games will help the team in the long run, but at the current point Bearden is looking to get in a groove.

“We are just struggling with consistency a little bit,” Allen said.

“Overall the season is going pretty well, we’ve won almost twenty matches so that’s pretty good. But I think we are kind of tired.”
