(IRONTON, Mo.) – The Valle Catholic Warriors volleyball team earned at least a share of the MAAA Small School Divisions regular season title Thursday night, as they knocked off the Arcadia Valley Tigers in three sets by a score of 21-25, 25-19, 25-20 on AV’s Senior Night.
In a match heard on the MyMoInfo SportStream, Valle was in control through most of the first, but AV tied it up at 21-21.
That’s when junior middle hitter Maddie DeMent took over.
They took off from there and had match point at 24-20.
They can win the division outright with a win next Tuesday versus Valley Caledonia.
Their next game is Monday at Ste. Genevieve.
Arcadia Valley is now 17-5 and 3-1 in the Small Schools Division.
They’ll play in the Jackson Tournament over the weekend and then face off with West County on the road next Thursday.
Our Applebee’s of Farmington Player of the Game was Valle’s senior outside hitter Hannah Drury.
