COLUMBIANA OH- East Liverpool Volleyball showed no fear against the back to back district champion Crestview Rebels on Wednesday night as they stormed to a 3-0 sweep (25-23 25-19 25-19).
The first set was a thriller. After the Potters jumped out to a 9-4 lead, the Rebels came back and tied it at 9. From that point on the Potters lead didn’t go over two until they led 23-20. Even then, the Rebels fought back and made it 23-22 before the Potters made the plays needed to win 25-23.
For sets two and three the dominance of East Liverpool captain Sharnae Wilson proved too much for the Rebels to match. Wilson had 19 kills on the night, and just 1 attack error. That’s a hitting percentage of .818. Kyia White added 9 kills for the Potters. Addison Galeoti led in digs with 11.
Lucy Montgomery had a great night for Crestview transitioning from setter last season to an outside hitter this season. She led the team with 13 kills, 6 digs, and an ace. Grace Auer had 13 assists and 4 kills.
Crestview returns to action Saturday morning hosting Minerva at 10:00.
