It was another good week for Lady Dawg volleyball; the girls in green all took care of business this week. All three teams defeated Brownwood Tuesday night for a second time. That, followed with a clean sweep over the Lady Badgers in Lampasas Friday, makes for a pretty great week.

“Tonight was so much fun to watch. So much heart and spirit shown by our young ladies,” said Burnet’s head coach Crystal Shipley after her team defeated Brownwood in five on Tuesday. “I can’t explain the energy and heart of the Lady Dawgs. They are improving every day and they play so unselfish and smart with all their effort,” added Shipley.

BHS volleyball will host Blanco Friday evening. It’ll be homecoming for all the BHS teams.

Friday evening will be special for a host of beaus, sweethearts, and the homecoming court. Following the announcement of the king and queen the varsity Bulldog football team will be all business as they try to tame the Brownwood Lions.

The Bulldogs are coming off a disappointing 30-7 loss to Boerne and have yet to put their best foot forward for an entire game. Fans are hopeful that Friday night will be the night it all comes together, more morale, confidence, a little more pep in the step.

It’s homecoming week and the home crowd typically gets larger; many former Bulldogs who once strapped up on that same field would love nothing more than to see 48 minutes of Bulldog spirit, pride, and honor. If a win follows that’s icing on the cake.

Remember with only 50 percent of the stadium being filled if you are a fan in one of those seats be loud and proud, the Dawgs will feed off that as well.

I’m gonna shout out several teams, the first would be the freshman boys who are still undefeated. Way to go guys!

Next, I’m dipping down to the middle school level to recognize that impressive eighth-grade A football squad; their front seven defenders in particular, Llano didn’t have a clue what to do about you guys.

I have several individuals who earned some props.

The talents of seventh-grader Riley Howell raised some eyebrows, but give props to his offensive line, they can clear a path.

Burnet’s eighth-grade A team had a slew of talent, but when desperate to keep a drive alive, they can count on No. 35; Little Lew knows what to do.

How about the BMS volleyball girls? Not a single set has been dropped by any volleyball team through their first two matches. That’s a combined 14 straight-set wins. You go girls!

Last, but not least, I can’t close without mentioning the Taps played at Friday night’s football game. Shout-out to new band director Andrew Hicks, job well done sir.

That’s all for this week, thanks for reading the Burnet Bulletin.
