The two EIAC foes met twice during the regular season.  Batesville won the early conference match rather easily in three games but Connersville proved to be a greater challenge at the Franklin Tournament before falling in two sets.

Even at 3-3 in game one, coach Kateri Paul’s Bulldogs went on a 7-1 run to go up 10-4.  Coach Stephanie Smith’s Spartans fought back three different times to make it close but were eventually turned away by the Dogs on each occasion.  BHS won 25-22.

In game two, the set swung in Batesville’s favor during a 10-3 spurt which put them up 17-6.  Connersville cut the deficit to six at 22-16 but the Bulldogs booked the final three points to win 25-16.

A 9-1 run by the Bulldogs gave Batesville early control of the final set.  The Spartans got within five but never really threatened.  Batesville capped the evening with a 25-17 victory in the third stanza.
