Win at Centennial locks Bruins volleyball into second place
By Joe Williams, Sports Editor
It took four games, but Brentwood locked down second place in District 11-AAA with a four game match victory at Centennial 25-21, 21-25, 25-20 and 25-20.
Brentwood head coach Barbara Campbell appeared happy to get out of the Cougar gym with a win.
“Centennial’s a good team,” she said after the match. “I felt like they did a great job of aggressive serving and keeping us out of our offense. Fortunately, with Sarah Tuttles, Sam Cotton, Jenny Roy and Kelly Severino we were able to have enough.”
Severino led Brentwood with 22 digs and 8 kills, while Cotton had 10 digs and 11 kills, Tuttle added 16 digs and 12 kills and Hunter Thompson led the team with 36 assists.
Brentwood took the first game 25-21 before giving up the second 25-21. With the win, Centennial slowed, according to Coach Brittany Rhinehart.
“We got a little complacent on serve receive and they started serving tougher. In the fourth game we started serving better, but our serve receive still wasn’t doing as well. We’ve got to be more disciplined no serve receive against a tough team.”
Brentwood won the third and fourth sets of the match by identical 25-20 scores.
With both teams aiming for the district tournament in two weeks, both know that only two teams from the district will advance to the regional tournament, leaving someone in the top three at home.
