If South Hagerstown volleyball coach Chuck Weaver had one wish, it might be for the Rebels to embrace prosperity.
After Monday night, Weaver might have a few more wrinkles. South secured it's seventh straight win and clinched the MVAL Piedmont title with a 25-21, 25-22, 16-25, 20-25, 19-17 thriller with Middletown.
After sprinting to a 9-2 lead in the fifth game, South (9-4, 3-0) watched the Knights reel off 13 of the next 18 points for a 15-14 lead. But the Rebels finally prevailed on a Rebecca Pearl kill.
"It was two evenly matched teams," said Middletown coach Jamie Pryor. "It was a matter of which way the ball falls. But that was a good shot for the last point."
