Hempfield wins L-L Volleyball Title

The Black Knights of Hempfield have won their 23rd Lancaster-Lebanon Volleyball title by defeating the Warwick Warriors 3-1.

The final game scores were 25-23, 25-21, 27-29. 26-24.

It was quite a victory for the Black Knights, who lost their stranglehold on Section One this year when Warwick beat Hempfield 3-2 last Thursday in a playoff match for the Section One title.

Warwick had also defeated Hempfield in league play back on April 4th 3-1 for their first victory against Hempfield in 10 years.

But tonight’s battle for the League title was a fierce one.

The first three games featured ties at 21-21 and the fourth set was 2-24 before Hempfield closed out the match.

Hempfield had lost several top tired players to graduation and were supposedly in a rebuilding mode. Not quite.

Tonight Warwick put up a battle. Their front-row hitters were unreal. Adam Kurtz had 14 kills and 4 blocks. Noah Miller had 13 kills, Foster Loeb 13 kills and 21 digs, Chad Meeder had 12 kills.

For Hempfield it was the sterling play of Ryan Givens (13 kills and 5 blocks and Colsen Hunt with 35 assists and Alex Dragger’s 14 digs that made the winning difference.

This was Warwick’s first L-L League title match since 1993.
