Edwardsville head boys volleyball coach Andrew Bersett said the “performer of the night” was Eric Brammeier who had seven kills, nine service points, six aces and four digs.

“We had a decent mix of our kids with about half our regular starters and half our reserves playing,” Bersett said. “Jack Grimm and Lucas Verdun played most of the match. We did not play Nick Allen or Bob Dresner, we were resting them. Brammeier had seven strong kills and was a key tonight.”
