SIDNEY — Sidney’s volleyball squad secured a Miami Valley League Valley Division title on Wednesday.
The Yellow Jackets won a home MVL game against West Carrollton 25-5, 25-15, 25-17 to improve to 12-8 overall and 11-5 in league play.
Fairborn was the only team in the division that had a chance to tie Sidney for the title, but its chances were erased on Wednesday with a 3-2 loss to Vandalia-Butler, which dropped its league record to 8-8 with two games to play.
It’s a historic title for the program, which never won a division title in 18 years in the Greater Western Ohio Conference. The squad and the other nine MVL members left the GWOC to reform the MVL this year.
Allie Stockton and Faith Bockrath each earned eight kills on Wednesday while Anna Brady followed with seven and Darien McBride had six. Bockrath set up the offense with 29 assists.
Norah Houts dominated the serving line, serving 25-of-25, and landed five aces. Abby Nuss added three aces. Nuss held down the defense with 17 digs and Bockrath picked up 16.
The title is the fourth MVL divisional championship fall sports teams at the school have secured in recent weeks. The girls tennis squad secured the Valley Division title in late September, while the boys golf and boys soccer teams have secured Valley titles in the last week.
