FRENCH LICK — With just four seniors on the Northeast Dubois volleyball roster and only two on the Springs Valley squad, the two rivals figure to have many hard fought contests over the next few years. Saturday night's sectional championship game in French Lick was no exception.
Game one set the tone for the entire match. After the two teams were dead locked at 19 a piece, Valley used its solid net play to forge a 25-20 victory. The Jeeps were determined to even the set at 1-1 when they took a 22-20 lead late in game two. However, once again Valley dominated at the net and outscored the Jeeps, 5-1, down the stretch to secure a 25-23 victory.
Again, in the third game of the set, Northeast Dubois held tough and battled to a 12-12 tie before the Hawks settled in with their stellar play at the net to outscore the Jeeps 13-6 and earn a 25-18 victory.
Coach Leigh-Ann Brosmer’s Jeeps end her first campaign with a 6-17 record but will return a strong nucleus for next season. The Jeeps had defeated Orleans, 3-0, earlier in the day to advance to the final game. Springs Valley is now 23-3 and advances to the Loogootee regional, where it will play Rock Creek Academy at 10:00 a.m. Oct. 24.
