Wilson dethrones Exeter as Berks girls volleyball champion


Wilson used its balance at the net to dethrone four-time defending champion Exeter 3-0 and win its first Berks Girls Volleyball League title Wednesday night at West Lawn.

The Bulldogs (13-2) won 25-17, 25-27, 25-16 and prevented the Eagles (11-5) from winning an unprecedented fifth consecutive championship.

The teams split their matches in the regular season.

Wilson will open District 3 Class 4A play next week. Exeter ended its season.

Exeter swept Wilson 3-0 for the title last season, and the Bulldogs remembered that one-sided match in their first appearance in the county final.

“Going into the season, I knew we had the possibility to win the championship,” senior libero Lexi Niedrowski said. “That’s what we did. It was my last year. It was my last shot to beat them. The fact that I did, everything is at peace. It’s everything I wanted to do.

“Redeeming yourself after last year means that much more.”

Wilson coach Denny Werner said his players used the championship match last year as motivation.

“The seniors and a couple of the juniors who were on the floor last year felt it was embarrassing,” Werner said. “They put it to us. We were helpless at times. They had that experience. Their composure and confidence were different this year.”
