“Obviously, I’m very pleased,” Bulldogs head coach Joseph Burns wrote in an email. “I feel I owe a lot to my Assistant Coach, Angelique Gatling and to the boys who have worked very hard this year.”
Aireon Leary led the Bulldogs with 10 kills to go with 2.5 blocks and two aces. Brandon Hall had six kills, Chris Roscoe registered five kills and 6.5 blocks and Cal Bailey delivered 24 assists.
Lakeland was led by Ryan Stalnaker with nine kills and 20 assists, while Irvin Ashburn had eight kills and five blocks.
