An old saying states it's not important how you start, but how you finish.
It proved to be doubly true for the St. Elmo volleyball team Saturday night in the championship of its own Class 1A regional.
The second-seeded Lady Eagles made sure their season did not end the way it started - with a loss to South Central - by racing out to a 9-1 lead in the decisive third game of a 25-16, 18-25, 25-18 upset of the top-seeded Lady Cougars.
The regional title was St. Elmo's first since 2003.
