The Tremper girls volleyball team left no question as to who the best team in the Southeast Conference is on Tuesday night.
In a battle for the league lead, host Tremper swept Franklin 25-19, 25-18, 25-23 to improve to 5-0 in the SEC.
With a 4-0 Southeast Conference victory over Racine Park on Tuesday night at Ameche Field, the Tremper soccer team has now held its opponents scoreless for the last 293 minutes.
“Our defenders (Jake Lein, Sam Vecchitto, Ethan Johnson, Mitch Thornton) are huge reasons why,” Tremper coach Chris Tindall said. “They’ve been tremendously solid of late. That being said, (Andrew) Uttech has come up big on several occasions to keep the streak in tact. Tonight was no exception. He made a couple of stellar saves with the game on the line.”
