Belvidere North wins NIC-10, finishes conference-play undefeated

BELVIDERE, Ill. (WIFR) Belvidere North finished off an unbeaten run through the NIC-10 with a three-set victory over Hononegah Thursday night.

The Blue Thunder defeated the Indians 19-25, 25-12, 25-15 and finished conference-play 18-0.

"It feels really good especially the way we wanted to come out and fight for the title," said senior BrookeLyn Messenger. "It made it all more worth it."

"It's something that obviously was a goal for us at the beginning of the season and to be able to see that through to the end, it's special," said North head coach Amanda Carlson. "It is difficult to stay focused night in and night out so I think it says a lot about the drive of our players and the fact that they set a goal and they had enough fortitude to see it through."
