Rallying from a first set loss, the East Clinton eighth grade volleyball team capped its unbeaten season with a win over Goshen in the championship match Wednesday night at Fred Summers Court on the Wilmington City Schools campus.

The championship match scores were 24-26, 25-9, 26-24.

“It was a superb match,” EC coach Jaime Evanshine said.

East Clinton posted a 17-0 record this season and won both the regular season and tournament titles this season.

Evanshine said the championship match against Goshen was the team’s “toughest match we’ve had all year.”

Said Evanshine, “I’m so incredibly proud of my team for battling till the very end and believing in themselves and each other. These girls have such a special team bond and their teamwork is phenomenal.”
