GREENE – Hampton-Dumont was able to nab one victory at North Butler’s volleyball quadrangular on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at Greene.

The Bulldogs took losses to Lake Mills and the home school before taking their finale over Nashua-Plainfield, going to 7-18 on the season after that day.

“We had moments where our team was doing the little things right but we are struggling to be consistent throughout our games,” H-D coach Kelli Showalter said of the quad. “We also get down early in games and then fight back but it doesn’t give us enough time to make up for the start of our games.”
