SHERBURNE – The Sherburne-Earlville varsity volleyball team had their sights set on the win – a magical win on their senior night that would help them avoid an a defeated season – however, momentum was truly switched off leading to a 3-1 loss last Friday
The home loss on Friday, Feb. 3, and what was the last time playing on their home for S-E's four graduating seniors (Alexa Bates, Morgan Homann, Abbey Stratton, and Taylor Grant) – gave the crowd quite a contrast in performance from set to set. Up 1-0 over Stockbridge Valley, after showing great prowess on the court in their first set to win 25-19 – the gym needed to be evacuated due to a fire alarm going off just as the second set began, SB led 1-0 at the time.
When all was settled and the second set resumed – the lady Marauders who had Stockbridge playing scared after the first set seemed to have lost their edge, eventually falling to the tie at 1-1. The 1-1 set score was the result of a second set which saw S-E claim a 10-10 draw, before being stifled to a final set score of 25-14.
