The Wilmington High School volleyball team visited Miami Trace High School for the final time Thursday for an SCOL match-up.
Miami Trace maintained its standing in second place in the league with a 3-0 victory over the Hurricane.
Scores of the sets were: 25-12, 25-7 and 25-21.
For Miami Trace, Samantha Ritenour had eight kills.
Erica Marshall had six kills.
Dyamin Baker had five ace serves.
“Wilmington is not very strong this year,” Miami Trace head coach Doug Mace said. “You can tell they are athletic. They’re not very consistent at this time and that’s what hurts them.
“I was happy with our first two games this evening,” Mace said. “We stayed very focused; we did everything we were supposed to be doing, most of the time.
“We’re getting down to the last (few) matches of the season,” Mace said. “You’re getting ready for tournament time, so you want to see your kids staying focused a little more and doing the little things that we work on.
“For us to do that, especially to win that first game rather easily and then stay focused in the second game, and continue to do the things we needed to do, that’s a good sign at this time of year,” Mace said.
Miami Trace (11-6 overall, 7-2 in the SCOL) will host McClain Tuesday beginning with the j-v match at 5:30 p.m. McClain suffered its fourth SCOL loss Thursday, 3-0 to Chillicothe.
