By Jon Swisher-Sports Director:

The Starmont Stars fantastic volleyball campaign was ended last night, in the first round of the 2016 State Volleyball Tournament at the US Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, as they fell to No. 1 Janesville 3-0. The Stars had a great start in set one and were playing very loose. Stars head coach Robert Goedken commented that it was a focus to come out relaxed and try to put the pressure on the Wildcats:
