MAUPIN – Hoisting trophies is a regular thing in Maupin these days.

“We had a really solid tournament,” said SWC coach Donna Barton. “The team kept a steady pace no matter who I put in and just went out and won.”

SWC beat every team in two sets, by a 12-point margin, starting with a 25-12, 25-17 win over Stanfield.

The Lady Redsides then beat Condon-Wheeler (25-9, 25-18), Riverside (25-9, 25-11) and Damascus (25-14, 25-14).

In the four matches, SWC swerved at a 93-percent clip (182-195), led by Allie Noland (53-54), Jenna Wraught (15-15) and the trio of Kyrsten Sprouse, Ana Popchock and Jada Myers (15-16).
