LEES CREEK – East Clinton’s eight-match winning streak came to an end Wednesday with a 16-25, 16-25, 23-25 loss to SBAAC National Division leader Williamsburg.
The match was the Lady Astros annual Volley For The Cure event. This year’s honoree was Howard Boggs, who is fighting bladder cancer, EC coach Sarah Sodini said. Howard’s granddaughters Gracie and Jericka Boggs are members of the East Clinton volleyball program.
The money raise for Boggs through T-shirt sales, bake sale, split the pot and other donations will help Boggs with his medial costs. T-shirts will continue to be on sale at Friday’s home football game as well as next week’s volleyball games, Sodini said.
The loss puts WHS at 17-1 overall and 9-0 in the National Division. East Clinton is now 1o-5 overall and 5-3 in the division.
“Williamsburg is a tough team,” Sodini said. “The girls have been playing hard and things just did not go our way.”
Logan Peterman had 15 assists and four digs. Kenzie Campbell finished with two aces, seven kills, a block and five digs. Victoria Jamison had three kills and a whopping 10 blocks at the net. Myah Jones contributed an ace, a kill, eight assists and two digs.
