Bruins win back-to-back titles

LIZTON — Most accomplishments that leave a lasting impression take great effort and determination and the Tri-West girls’ volleyball team exemplified both of those traits Saturday. The experienced Bruins found a way past a scrappy Danville squad for their second consecutive sectional title, winning 3-1 (25-9, 25-23, 18-25, 25-20).

“We are excited,” Tri-West coach Stacey Rogers said with a wide smile. “The girls have been on fire the last couple of days. Danville really stepped it up here at the end of the season. They were a force to be reckoned with and they really took all that we had.”

Danville was not the same team that Tri-West had defeated 3-0 early in the year and seeing them fight to a five set win over Indian Creek after the Bruins bested Indianapolis Northwest 3-0, Rogers admitted Tri-West expected to have its hands full this time around.

Both teams came out in the first set with a high amount of energy and Tri-West settled down first and seized control. Up 10-6, the Bruins’ Taylor Green went on a serving run of 11 points before the Warriors could answer.

Danville came out in the second set and led 8-3 before Tri-West mounted a charge. The two teams traded blows and Tri-West eventually climbed into the lead, but never more than three points ahead of Danville.

With its season on the line and at a time when most teams would have folded down 2-0, Danville came out with just as much energy in the third set. The Warriors again built a substantial lead, but it was one they would not relinquish.

“The girls really put forth the greatest effort that I had seen all season in the past two games,” Danville coach Shea Pierson said. “Our seniors really stepped it up here in the last two games and so did our freshmen. I was really impressed with their effort and they didn’t give up.”
