Bill Davis/News Centerburg’s Alaina Wright (14) spikes the ball past East Knox’s Reign Hernandez (6) during the second set of Tuesday’s Knox-Morrow Athletic Conference match. The Trojans won in four sets.

HOWARD — Sally Simpson and Stephanie Warner met on the court after Tuesday’s volleyball match between Centerburg and East Knox. Their meeting went a bit longer than usual.

After all, they aren’t just coaching rivals. They were also rivals on the court.

Simpson, a Centerburg grad, and Warner, from East Knox, played against each other years ago in the old Mid-Buckeye Conference. Now, as the coaches of their respective alma maters, they’re facing off once again in the Knox-Morrow Athletic Conference.

“It’s always fun to see people we used to play with,” Warner said.
