East Ridge volleyball: Ponies end Raptors’ year in section tournament


Based on previous meetings this season and in the past East Ridge volleyball head coach Erin Nickleby expected an intense matchup Thursday when her fifth-seeded Raptors met fourth-seeded Stillwater in the first round of the Section 4AAA tournament.

When the teams met in the regular season the Ponies pulled out a five-set victory Sept. 17 at East Ridge High School. The Raptors had a 2-1 lead after the third set, but Stillwater rallied to win the final two sets for the victory.
