While not having the intrigue or drama which it did last year when North Central and Buford met in a one-match tie-breaker to determine the top seed and conference champion out of Region 4-AA, Tuesday’s match between the two sides was special ... at least it was for North Central.

The Lady Knights completed a perfect 12-match 4-AA campaign by knocking off visiting Buford in three sets. It was the 14th straight 3-0 shutout of the season for Andy Johnson’s squad which remained undefeated with the win.

North Central took the opening set, 25-21, before taking sets two and three, 25-14 and 25-16, to put an early end to the evening.

Freshman hitter Alyana Johnson led the winners with 16 kills while adding nine digs, serving up a pair of aces and having a block. Madison Dixon and Rhi Hendrix had eight kills each with Dixon having a dozen digs and an ace while Hendrix added a block.

Setter Aaliyah White dished out 36 assists to go along with seven digs and a block. Libero Peyton Holley had 24 digs, five assists, three kills and a pair of aces. Tierra Preston contributed 12 digs, two aces, a kill and a block.

The Lady Knights will try and close out an unbeaten regular dual match season on Saturday when they host Lugoff-Elgin, Gilbert and Gray Collegiate Academy in a four-team  series which begins at 9 a.m. at The Castle in Boonetown.

North Central will open AA Upper State championship tournament action when it hosts the fourth-place finisher from Region 3 on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 6 p.m. Should the Lady Knights get past their opening round opponent, they will stay on home to take on the winner of the match between the third-place finishers out of Regions 1 and 2 on Monday, Oct. 29 at 6 p.m. inside The Castle.

Lady Demons hold off Sumter: The Lugoff-Elgin volleyball team improved to 4-3 in Region 4-5A action by outlasting Sumter in five sets on Tuesday.

The Lady Demons won the opener, 25-18, before Sumter took sets two and three, 25-10 and 25-23, respetively. L-E regrouped to win the fourth set, 25-22, before winning the fifth set tie-breaker, 15-9.

L-E travels to Spring Valley next Tuesday in a match which could decide second place in region behind Blythewood.
