EC  09  23  22

Columbus North advances to Saturday’s 11 am semifinals to face Martinsville.  East Central ends its season at 18-10 overall and 6-1 in the EIAC.

Edited report from East Central coach Cassie Laker:  We started off extremely slow. I don’t know if it was nerves or what, but we could not do anything right in the first set. Columbus North just put the ball on our side of the net and we found a way to give them the point. The last two sets were much different. We were in position to win them both, but couldn’t put points together when it mattered most. The girls played extremely hard and never gave up. They truly believed they were going to pull it out, no matter the score. They really left it all on the court. It just wasn’t our night. Unfortunately, in the postseason, having an off night doesn’t favor well for you.  This team battled all season. We didn’t always get the outcome we wanted, but I never doubted how hard they worked on game nights. They showed real grit every time they stepped on that court. I will miss this group. Varsity ended the season 19-10 and 6-1 in the EIAC.
