Lady Trojans VB Team Wins Against Lady Lions
About a month ago, ECVB traveled to Rushville for a conference match. Due to an emergency with one of the officials, our game got postponed until last night. The first trip, we didn’t show up. There was nothing pretty about our performance and I’m not even sure how we pulled off the 26-24 win. We started set 2 the same way that night and the game was postponed at 6-6. 

ECVB vs Rushville 9-29-20

We started at 6-6 last night and we were much more fired up and ready to play. We jumped out to a quick lead and never looked back. We finished with the scores of 25-13 & 25-13.  

Varsity is now 14-7 on the season and 6-0 in the EIAC. Next: at Shelbyville Saturday at 11 AM.
