The Lady Vandals finished off a perfect conference season on Thursday night, avenging an earlier loss to Pana with a 25-23, 25-20 victory to earn the South Central Conference championship.
Vandalia (23-5, 9-0 SCC) had lost at Pana (27-7) on Sept. 20, but a strong attack game and nearly-perfect defense allowed the Lady Vandals to control Thursday's game.
Senior Sierah Ruffner had eight kills in the match, and seniors Austyn Krueger and RaeChelle Leiken each edded seven.
The game serves as a springboard into next week's regional tournament. Vandalia's first game is on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
