The Whetstone High School girls volleyball team beat host Centennial 25-11, 25-13, 25-16 on Sept. 7 to end the Stars’ City League-North Division winning streak that dated to 2011.
Centennial fell to 6-2 overall and 4-1 in the City-North, while Whetstone improved to 6-2 overall and 5-0 in the league.
The Stars had won 76 consecutive City-North matches since the start of the 2012 season. They had not lost to a City League opponent since falling 25-27, 26-24, 25-22, 25-19 to Eastmoor Academy in the City championship match in 2012.
“We did a lot of things we typically have not been doing, made a lot of unforced errors,” said first-year Centennial coach Britney Lewis, whose team was led by Akea Hunter’s six kills and two blocks.
The Braves got seven kills and eight blocks from Whitney Staggs, six kills from Dahlia Kleen and 15 assists and four aces from Hannah Reed.
“We played well as a team and our experience showed,” Whetstone coach Errol Rembert said. “We’ve got eight seniors who are playing very well right now.”
