Oh and there was a match by the way. Clarkston started out well, blocking a couple potential kills and making things happen, but the powerhouse that is the Lewiston lady Bengals proved to be too much
as they win in three straight sets, 25-11, 25-8, 25-10.

With the win, Lewiston jumps to 29-1! When many sports fans think rivalry, they may think football, baseball, or basketball...well don't count out volleyball!

"It's nice to play someone from the valley, some of these girls play club volleyball together so they know each other, they know each other through other sports," said Lewiston Volleyball Headcoach Kelly Harwick. "So it's nice to get out on the court and kinda give it a go!"

"Well the girls get up for it," said Clarkston Volleyball Headcoach Adam Van Vogt. "These girls play spring league together and play with each other a lot so they look forward to playing each other. They definitely get up for this one."
