Fulton falls in bracket play
Here are the results of our play this weekend at the St. Louis tournament on 9/22/18.
Won against Chippewa Hills 25-22, 25-22.
Lost against St. Louis 12-25, 13-25.
We finished 2nd in our pool of 3 schools.
Won against Alma 25-21, 16-25, 15-13
The top 2 teams in all 4 pools advanced to the gold bracket. But first, we had to play a seeding match to determine what seed we would be going into the gold bracket. We played Alma who was also 2nd in their pool. With the win against Alma, we were listed as the 5th seed going into the the gold bracket.
Lost against PW (4th Seed) 9-25, 13-25
It was single elimination once we lost in bracket play, so that ended our tournament at St. Louis.

This was a tournament of ups and downs for us. We won 2 and lost 2 and played pretty competitive teams all day. We could have performed better during our match against St. Louis. I was happy to see us pull the win out against a tough Alma team in a 3rd set. We tend to struggle in deciding sets to 15, so I was glad to see us get that one. We did not help ourselves out with poor serving against PW as that was our worst serving match of the day. ~Holly Malek, Fulton Varsity Volleyball Coach
