Trinity Mayo led Bloomfield with 11 kills in the loss while Haili Bekes had 30 assists.
Bloomfield head coach Tami Bekes said she knows her team is coming together.
“We got a glimpse of what we are capable of,” Bekes said. “We are getting that ‘never say die’ attitude, but we need to be able to serve and pass without errors if we want to win. That is fixable, and we are looking forward to trying to get a district win in Wingate next weekend.”
