ECC 3, Sheffield 0
Playing just one day after the program's first win in two years, the Lady Wolverines looked to keep the momentum rolling at home against league-opponent Elk County Catholic. Unfortunately, the Crusaders had other plans. Sheffield was swept by Elk County in three sets, 14-25, 17-25, and 8-25.
"We need to work on our communication and transitions," said Sheffield coach Tracey Vile. "We didn't play our game. We played flat."
In a slow day offensively, senior Hannah Vile had six assists to lead the Wolverines. Abby Labesky and Kayla Curtis had four kills each in the loss.
Sheffield will take a week to prepare for Ridgway on Tuesday.
