The Station Camp Bison volleyball train keeps rolling. Its latest victim, Gallatin, was unable to test the maroon and white, as Molly Yarborough's club moved to 14-1 on the season.

The straight-set victory for Station Camp marks the 13th time this season the Bison have been untested, finishing off each team in three games.

The latest victory (25-13, 25-13, 25-17) is just another building block for the Bison to improve upon.

"We are always working fundamentals, every day," Yarborough said. "Whether that is serve-receiving, making sure we are running our routes because you never know what team is going to be on the other side."

A near perfect start to the 2017 season has most in maroon and white happy, prompting coach Yarborough to state this is better than she imagined.

"No, I'm really happy with the start," she said. "One of our strengths are in the front row but we have a lot of things. All five of my hitters can get the job done."

Injuries are a part of any sport, and it reared its ugly head again Tuesday night, taking down a starter. But bench play stepped up and did its job, making it look as if the Bison wouldn't miss a beat.

"That is the great thing about our team," she said. "That is one thing we have, which is depth. In practice, you're constantly throwing girls in and putting them at different spots because you don't know what will happen in a game."

For the Green Wave, they were just outmatched from the jump.

"We are just not very big and then they start hitting the ball the way they can hit the ball we get frustrated," Gallatin coach Jerry Landers said. "We couldn't get anything offensively going. They are a very good team."

Though the straight set loss hurts now, Landers says his team can grow and build off this defeat.

"We just have to get better," he said. "We have to worry about the next play so that we can get better for the next district opponent. The goal is will this game make us better for the second half of the season?"

In each of the first two sets, Gallatin had its chance, but the Green Wave continuously gave up 5-8 unanswered points - allowing the game to get out of reach.

"We gave up that gap and that is one thing we have to work on," Landers said. "We can't allow so many runs, teams get a spurt get away from us and it's hard to get back into."
