All eyes in the NCAA were on Southeast of Saline High School last night for a battle between two Saline County rivals on the volleyball court. Southeast of Saline came into the match-up with a narrow lead in the league race with their opponent Sacred Heart, and also Ellsworth, giving chase.
The final scores would not disappoint the Trojan fans and neither would the level of competition. The Lady Trojans would rally after losing the first match, 24-26, 25-19, 25-16. The home team would also need three to win the second game 25-14, 22-25, 25-15.
The match-up was a rematch from 2011, when Sacred Heart defeated Southeast of Saline for the NCAA title. In fact, until last night, the Knights had won 15 of the last 16 years.
Senior night at SES was dedicated to one player last night, Brooke Christie is the lone senior player on the Lady Trojan Team.
Southeast now 26-8 overall, prepares to host sub-state this weekend. The sub-state bracket will feature the top four teams from the NCAA: Southeast of Saline, Ellsworth, Sacred Heart and Minneapolis. 3A Sub-State VB Bracket- SE-Saline
