When faced with a feat not accomplished in nearly two decades, South Hardin did not falter. Instead, the gritty Tiger squad clawed their way back from a large deficit in the fourth set to knock out rivals BCLUW in four games.
The 25-17, 16-25, 25-20, 26-24 win guaranteed SH a share of the NICL-West title. Eldora-New Providence last won the league in 2002 and Grundy Center has held the top spot for the last 12 seasons. But not anymore.
