B-T net team drops four
Against some top competition, both in the Dairyland Conference and elsewhere, the Blair-Taylor volleyball team went winless in four matches last week.
The Wildcats pushed a 12-5 Durand team to the fifth set, but came up short last week Monday. They were swept on Dairyland Conference leader Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran on Tuesday before falling 2-0 to Cashton and Cochrane-Fountain City in a tournament hosted by Cashton on Saturday (no further information from those matches was reported to the Times).
The losses put B-T’s overall mark at 6-10 on the season and they’re 4-4 in DC play. After hosting Mondovi on Monday of this week, their last regular season match was set for Thursday in Augusta.
