Lady Trojans Sweep Lay Spartans In Volleyball
ECVB hosted Connersville in an EIAC match last night and swept the Spartans at both the JV and Varsity levels. Varsity won with the scores of 25-9, 25-20, 25-14.   

Trojans Coach Cassie Laker’s Comments.
‘We started off how we ended Tuesday against Lawrenceburg. Then we had our notorious “set 2 nap” where we went through the motions and didn’t play at our level. They flipped the switch back on in set 3 to come out on top.  ‘

Varsity is now 11-6 on the season and 5-0 in the EIAC. Next: Muncie Central Invite tomorrow.
