The Bearcats take-down #2 seed North Adams.
Playing tough competition pays off.
The Paint Valley Bearcats Volleyball squad can attest to that, coming out of the always tough SVC where they finished last in the conference. The Bearcats upset #2 seed North Adams in five sets for the Division 4 Sectional Championship Thursday.
The Bearcats win 20-25, 25-16, 23-25, 25-22, 15-13 to improve to (9-14) and now head to the District Semis in Jackson October 24th against Eastern Meigs. The Eagles advanced with a straight-set win over South Gallia 25-8, 25-12, 25-20.
Laci Stanforth led the offense with 16 kills and 33 digs, followed by Taylor Baker with 15 and 3 blocks. Erin Riley also had 28 digs for the Bearcats.
The Paint Valley-Eastern Meigs match will be the second of two that night, with the first starting at 6pm between Eastern Pike and Portsmouth Clay.
