By Jon Swisher-Sports Director:
The Class 1A 15th-ranked Starmont Stars improved their record to 30-8 last night with a 3-0 sweep over East Buchanan at home. The Stars controlled the match winning 25-14, 25-15 and 25-16. Stars 10th-year head coach Robert Goedken says his team jumped out of the gates playing well early on and was able to settle back down to close out the Bucs:
The Stars will now face Ed-Co for the 4th time this season on Thursday night, in Edgewood. The 14th-rated Vikings shutout Central Elkader last night, moving on with a 3-0 win.
