GENEVA — Four years ago, Bruning-Davenport/Shickley volleyball coach Dan Sorge told his team it had big things in store for it.
Now, the first class of seniors to be a part of Bruning-Davenport/Shickley for all four years, since the schools joined forces in sports, is heading to state for the first time in the program's history.
BDS had to come back to beat Friend in five sets, winning 16-25, 26-24, 21-25, 25-17, 15-12 to take home the Class D-1, District 1 championship.
"I knew it was going to be a tough match. (Friend is) very athletic," Sorge said.
