Homecoming! It's a barn burner win! (VIDEO)

The B-B-E Jaguars volleyball team improved to 3-0 in the Central Minnesota Conference tonight with a huge Homecoming 3-2 barn burner win over neighboring rival Paynesville Area.

The Jaguars won game five 15-8 after falling 25-22 in a closely-fought game four. Video is uploading.

**Here's video from game one tonight; this video ends with the Jaguars holding a slim 15-13 lead:

Game one was a wild one, with the Bulldogs fighting back from a 19-16 deficit to tie it at 20-20. The Bulldogs were in a 6-1 run that put them in the lead by a 22-20 margin. Allison Dingmann drilled a kill into a block, but then Paynesville had a kill to regain a two-point lead. The Jaguars hit long to bring game point and a 24-21 lead for the Bulldogs. Then it got crazy! The Bulldogs hit long in back-to-back series to narrow it to 24-23. Tayjah Marthaler then had a huge ace serve to tie it at 24-24. Game one wasn't over by a long shot. The Jaguars served on game point at 26-25, 27-26 and 28-27. With the game tied 27-27, Brooklyn Fischer had a solo ace block. The Bulldogs bumped a Paige Rupp attack into the net to end the game in favor of B-B-E 29-27. Wow.

Game scores were 29-27, 25-14, 14-25, 22-25, 15-8.

I was so proud of our small but mighty B-B-E pep band tonight! I am biased, though, as I was fortunate enough to play with the band for a few songs. It's been over two years since I've picked up my trumpet. That changed tonight!  

More to come in the morning. I have to finish off a monster 16-page issue tonight. Please remember to keep our students and their families in your prayers this week! We all want everyone to make it home every night amidst all the fun and excitement of Homecoming week in Jaguar Country.
