  • 0

For the past 13 matches the East Sac County volleyball team hasn’t been able to be stopped.

The Raiders extended their win streak to 14 straight on Monday night when they defeated MVAOCOU 3-0 to move into the class 2A semi-finals which were played on Thursday night.

East Sac was favored to win the match on Monday night as MVAOCOU had entered the night having not won a set since September.

That didn’t mean that East Sac could get sloppy in their play. The Knights made sure to keep their play sharp and it showed with the sweep.

In the first set the Raiders allowed the Rams to score just 13 points in a 25-13 victory. That led to the second set which was an even faster win for East Sac.

This time the Raiders were able to take a 25-11 victory .

With the 2-0 lead the Raiders started to feel comfortable with the match, but they made sure not to get too comfortable. The Rams had nothing to lose in the third set, and they left everything out on the court.

East Sac managed the attack and went on to win 25-18 in the third set, advancing to the regional semi-finals.

Monday night the Raiders were led by Brianna Boeckman who had six kills. Adding another six kills was Bailey Wollesen. Olivia Grote added another three kills.

Maty Quirk did the passing for the team finishing with 11 total assists.

Boeckman was the team leader in digs as well. She wrapped up the night with 13.

East Sac played West Monona on Thursday night in Lake City, with results not being available at press time.
