Bishop England Wins AA Volleyball Title, Wando Falls In Finals

COLUMBIA, SC -

Bishop England continued one of the most dominant runs in high school sports by winning their 14th state volleyball title and 24th overall (a national record) by sweeping Andrew Jackson on Saturday 3-0 at White Knoll High School. 

B-E took less than an hour to take the crown with a 25-11, 25-14, 25-13 victory. 

The victory completes another impressive run for the Bishops in the postseason as the girls never lost a set in 5 playoff matchups. They finish the season at 38-7. 

Wando looked like they were going to win their 1st title since 1993 after winning the first two sets against Hillcrest. But the Rams, the two time defending AAAA state champs, came back to take the final 3 sets.

The Warriors took the 1st two sets 25-13, 25-21. But Hillcrest kept fighting taking the final 3 sets 25-14, 25-16 and 15-8. 

Wando finishes the year at 47-7.
