It was almost as if the officials at Tuesday’s AA Upper State championship volleyball match between North Central and host Liberty wanted to see how much emotional stress the visiting Lady Knights could handle. After the two sides traded wins in the first four sets with NC taking the first and third, 25-18 and 25-19, while Liberty won the even sets by similar 25-18 and 25-19 counts, the stage was set for the first to 15 tie-breaker in which a team had to win by two or more points. With the Red Devils leading in the fifth set, 15-14, NC was whistled for four hits, thereby ending the match with the hostesses, seemingly, headed to Saturday’s state finale against 14-time defending state champion Bishop England.
