Battle Ground Academy def. Zion Christian Academy, 3-0

Gillian Baisden produced nine kills, Christine Jewell added seven kills and BGA grabbed a 25-9, 25-14, 25-11 win Tuesday.

"The team served tough and executed early on in rallies,” Lady Wildcats coach Tatiana Alvarez said. “I thought our setters did a great job of moving the ball around to ultimately position us for a kill."

Ally Newkirk added 15 assists and served five aces for BGA and Baisden added three aces.

BGA hosts Grace Christian Academy on Thursday.
