KETTERING — The undefeated Highland Fighting Scots volleyball team is going to the regional finals for the first time ever.
The young Scots, with nary a senior on the roster, pulled off another sweep Wednesday, taking down a very strong Bishop Fenwick team from Middletown, 25-17, 25-21, 25-17, in their Division III regional semifinal match Fairmont High School in Kettering.
This is the first time since 1977 that the Scots have been to the regionals — and the first time they have ever had a chance to go to the regional final.
“I think we really picked it up in the third game,” said Highland junior Kam Terry. “We knew what happened at Ready and we didn’t want it to happen again. We really picked it up and we played smart in that (third) game. We didn’t want to go through that again. We wanted to get it done.”
Highland, which won 61 sets in a row until they dropped two sets Saturday, are building a new streak of set wins with the sweep against Fenwick. Until their 3-2 win over Bishop Ready in the district final last Saturday, the Scots had not lost a set in 27 straight matches.
