The Central Bulldogs protected their home court Thursday night, dispatching Monett in two sets in varsity girls volleyball.
After taking the opening set 25-14, the Bulldogs got a kill from Maddie Dimmick to jump out to a 6-1 lead in the second. Monett battled back, as Carmen Fillinger’s tip at the net cut the deficit to 16-10.
However, Central put the match away. Freshman Genevieve Thornton provided the final point for the 25-14, 25-14 sweep.
