Bulldogs tune up for Dak XII Tournament with a win over Milbank

Madison won its 18th match of the season on Tuesday, in a three set victory over the Milbank Bulldogs. Madison cruised in the first two sets, winning on identical scores of 25-17. Milbank led through much of the 3rd set but Madison used a late rally to win 26-24. Head coach Jill Kratovill says, she’s just happy with a win.

Jessi Giles had 8 kills and 16 digs for Madison. Olivia Rud, who picked up her 1,000 career kill on Monday, added 10 more on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs are on a five match win streak that includes a win Saturday over Warner. Kratovill thinks that victory was one the Bulldogs best matches of the season.

Next up for Madison is the Dakota XII Conference tournament. The Bulldogs will host that event Saturday. First round pairings will be released later this week.
