EAST LIVERPOOL OH- Beaver Local picked up a Buckeye 8 championship over Union local. The scores were 25-19, 16-25, 25-19, 25-18.

Grace Hill had 15 kills and 5 blocks. Brooke Talbot had 16 kills, 18 assists and 12 digs. Chloe Reed had 7 digs. The Beavers play again Saturday at Edison with freshman starting at 9am.

Coach Sarah Lowe: they say offense wins games but Defense wins championships, tonight was a true attest to that as our defense lead the charge picking up dig after dig of a hard fought union local offense. Our setters were then able to place the ball and our hitters then fired hard with strategically placed swings to help pick up the win this evening. It’s been five years since we won the Buckeye 8 championship tonight is a good mile marker on the season!

Senior Grace Hill: From the pass to the set to the hit everyone was on and energetic. It felt so good to come out against this strong team and win the Buckeye 8 Championship in front of our home fans.

Senior Kodi Kinsey: We gave everything we had tonight. Playing against a team who took the championship title last year, gave us all that extra spark. We played like a true family and got the outcome we have been seeking. I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of our team.
