Newberry volleyball wins district championship

BY HANK RONE

Newberry won their 5th straight district championship on October 15, capping a four-year stretch during which the current senior class has never lost a district match.  

The Panthers swept Trenton, 25-14, 25-17, 25-10. The Panthers were led by senior middle Grace Oelrich, who had 12 kills, 6 blocks, and 4 aces. Junior libero Abby Pace was all over the court and had 16 digs with 2 aces. Senior outside Katie Oxer chipped in with 7 kills and 9 digs. Senior setter Sarah Miller dished out 28 assists to go along with 9 digs in a great defensive effort for the Panthers. 

The Panthers next face Ft. Meade at 7:00 p.m. on October 27 in Newberry.
