In what has become a friendly volleyball rivalry for many years resulting in very close matches, South Central bested St. Elmo-Brownstown in three sets Thursday night 26-24, 24-26, 25-22. South Central built on an early lead in the first set and warded off a late comeback by SEB to pull out the first set victory. SEB then charged back late in the second set to even the match at 1-1. South Central again was able to ward off a late SEB comeback in the third set to pick up the win. And South Central Coach Mary Brimberry saying it was a hard fought win for her team.
Unable to overcome early deficits, St. Elmo-Brownstown Coach Elise Asher says serve receive and passing is something they will look to improve on going forward.
South Central is now 2-0 (2-0 in NTC) on the season and will be in action Saturday at the Altamont Tournament. St. Elmo-Brownstown moves to 1-2 and will return to action Saturday at the Mattoon Invitational.
