YSHS volleyball team wins back conference title

Last night’s victory was particularly sweet for the Yellow Springs High School girls volleyball team.

It wasn’t just that the team earned a share of the Metro Buckeye Conference title with the win — nor that they dominated in a straight-set romp of the visitors.

It was that the YSHS squad clinched the MBC title share with a win against Emmanuel Christian, the very team that took the championship from them last year.

After winning back-to-back MBC titles in 2015 and 2016, the YSHS lost it in 2017. Now, they will at least share the title, and may win it outright, with two conference games left this season.

The final score was 25–17, 25–13, 25–16.

Unofficially, Junior Tyler Linkhart had nine kills, two blocks and served up one ace, sophomore Emma Ronnebaum finished with 11 kills, three blocks and an ace, and senior Alex Ronnebaum had six kills, three blocks and  two aces, including the final match point, according to the Fairborn Daily Herald.
