Pettisville defeated Edon for the second time this season, Thursday, Oct. 14 to win the Buckeye Border Conference championship outright.

It’s the first time since 2002 that PHS has won the league volleyball title.

The Blackbirds defeated the Blue Bombers in five games the first time they met this season at Edon. The second time around it took only three games, but just as in the first match, the Blackbirds won in thrilling fashion.

Pettisville won the first two games 25-20, 25-17, then came back from being down 24-21 in the third game to capture the match and league title 26-24. Natalie Hubby’s kill at 25-24 finished off the Bombers.

The Birds won the league title with a 9-1 record. Edon finished second with an 8-2 record.–Posted 10.14, 9:58 pm
