LEES CREEK — For the first time since 2009, the East Clinton volleyball team defeated Williamsburg and ended a 13-match league losing streak.
The Astros handled the Wildcats in a three-set match Monday 25-20, 25-20, 25-17 in SBAAC National Division action.
Williamsburg has won six consecutive National Division titles but currently sits three games behind league leader East Clinton in the standings.
”This was a great win for us, beating Williamsburg was one of our goals going into the season,” EC head coach Sarah Sodini said. “The girls have worked hard to get to this point. I’m excited to move forward from here. I am especially proud of our back row. Savannah Tolle (Libero), Lydia Kessler, Jordan Collom, Trinity Bain, and Eryn Bowman passed very well. Without their hustle and good passing, we couldn’t have made the plays on the net.”
