The Rebels volleyball team took the Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton Bulldogs in three straight games Tuesday 25-13, 25-14 and 25-17.

Game one started off with an unanswered lead of 4-0 which United South Central extended to 17-3 as senior Kelsey Stevermer served up 14 straight points in her final regular season game. Others with a great night serving were Ciara Christenson who went 14-for-15 with three aces, Lindsey Dahl went 6-for-6 and had seven kills. Becca Olson went 3-for-3 with 14 digs. Sabrina Bushlack was perfect as a server going 15-for-15 with one ace and 14 kills and Shannon Koestler went 11-for-12 with three aces.

The J-W-P girls put on a good run in the final game to get the hometown Rebels down by a few, but on this night, the Rebels would not be denied the sweep.
