The Dawgs hosted the Bulldog Spring Showdown this past Saturday (1/31)! 8 teams were in attendance including Illinois State, Indiana State and Wright State. Both the A & B team played well throughout the day and advanced into the Championship Bracket. The B team defeated Wright State to move on to the second round of play against the A team. Going into three matches, both teams put up a great fight! The A team continued on into the championship match against Illinois State’s A team. After battling it out point for point, Butler was able to win the third game and clinch the championship! The Dawgs had a great day playing volleyball on their home court in Hinkle!

Dog tired after winning the championship!
The dawgs traveled to Bloomington this weekend to compete in the Hoosier Classic! Both teams had excellent pool play and were able to both get placed in the gold bracket for playoffs! The A team defeated Indiana State B & Wisconsin B in pool play. They won one & lost one against Indiana A, but still were seeded 2nd in the entire tournament after pool play! The B team defeated Bellarmine and split a match with Purdue B. They were defeated by Ball State’s A team but were seeded 7th overall.
Due to the seeding, the A & B team had to face off in the first round of bracket play! After a tough match between the teams, the A team was victorious. The A team then went on to face Purdue’s A team in the semi-finals. They won in 3 games and advanced to the championship against Wisconsin’s A team. After a tough loss in the first game, the dawgs battled back to win the second game and force a third. After a tough fight, the dawgs fell to Wisconsin by 4 points. The team was very proud to get second place in this highly competitive, 16 team tournament. Both teams played extremely well and it was an awesome way to end tournament play for the fall semester!
