Williamsport (13-1 overall, 8-0 MVAL) finished one game ahead of Smithsburg (13-1 overall, 7-1) in the standings.

Williamsport senior setter Kristine Porac collected 32 assists, 18 digs and 11 service points on Monday. Porac finished the regular season with 383 assists, which ranks first in the Tri-State area. Porac is also ranked among the area leaders in serving percentage.

"It feels great to win sole possession of the MVAL title, because this is the first time in a long time that we have not had to share it," Porac said. "We have worked really hard for this. We work good together as a team and we communicate well on the floor. We also have a good coach to back us up, in case we make mistakes. She helps us to keep our heads up."

Danielle Munson had 21 digs, 18 kills, 13 blocks and nine service points for the Wildcats. Katie Spoonire added 16 digs, 13 service points and nine kills, sophomore Meggie Miller had 17 kills, Chelsea Jolliffe scored 10 service points and senior Meghan Foley had nine service points for Williamsport.

"I think that the girls really stepped up to the challenge," Williamsport coach Kristi Gee said. "I think that's the reason that our team has been able to be successful ... we don't rely on just one person."

Leah Easterday and Mandy Binder had 12 assists each, Katie Ambrose and Jenn Frey added 12 digs each and Kelly Baldwin had 10 digs for Boonsboro (7-7 overall, 4-4 MVAL).

"It was nice to see our girls play strong defense and put up an aggressive attack," Boonsboro coach Kris McGee said. "We just played with a lot of heart."
