Clark won the first set 25-20, lost the second one 25-21 and captured the last two games 25-20 and 25-21.
“It was a very hostile, loud environment, which really helps my girls keep pumped up and maintain their aggressive play and energy,” Clark coach Robyn Curry said. “It was a big game for us playing (our) rival Montgomery County, but we played well and got it done.”
Curry added that her team hasn’t lost to the Lady Indians in the past four years.
“It was great to keep that (winning streak) going,” she said.
Curry said senior Carrie Irvin had a “super night” setting the ball, while sophomore Kaytlynn Williams “came in and gave us some good plays.”
Clark upped its record to 15-7 and 4-0 in the district, while the Lady Indians slipped to 17-7 and 3-2.
Stats: Kills — Sandra Skinner 12, Maddie Hamlin 6, Darion Marzetti and Kaytlynn Williams 5.
