Stars get historic win against Brebeuf Jesuit

Indianapolis — The 16th-ranked Western Boone volleyball team traveled south to face one of the better programs in state history Tuesday night in No. 5 Brebeuf Jesuit.

And for the first time in school history, the Stars topped the Braves — 26-24, 11-25, 13-25, 25-20, 15-6.

“We are so thrilled,” Western Boone head coach Laura Lawson said. “I know from playing them when I was at Western Boone, that a lot of times we went into the match not to win, but to just be competitive. This is the first time we have ever beat them and when I told the girls that they were really excited.”

Private schools have seemed to be the nemesis for the Stars, especially in the postseason.

The last two Western Boone sectional title teams — in 2009 and 2011 — lost to private schools in the regional.

The only loss this season for the 9-1 Stars is to a private school as well in Cardinal Ritter. Beating a high-quality private school on their home court will be big for the Stars, Lawson said.

“It is great, especially since we play them early in the season,” Lawson said. “When we beat (Bishop) Chatard (2-1 in the WeBo Invite) we only had three weeks before we saw them again (Chatard topped the Stars in the regional). Now to beat a team like Brebeuf on their home court, this is going to give us a lot of confidence.”
