LAUREL HILL — There were no prizes or district seedings on the line as the Laurel Hill School volleyball team hosted District 1-1A foe Central on Thursday.

The Hoboes had previously wrapped up the top seed for the district tournament that will be played at Bethlehem on Oct. 24 and had nothing to prove against the Jaguars.

As the top seed in the three-team district Laurel Hill is assured a spot in the tournament championship match and a spot in the state playoffs.

In reality the only thing on the line for the Hoboes was the opportunity to run the district regular season schedule undefeated. Check that off too as Laurel Hill swept Central in straight sets by scores of 25-9, 25-9, 25-13.

Hobo coach Kent Zessin couldn’t have been more pleased with the way his team played Thursday and has been playing the last few weeks.

“We’re playing the type of volleyball we want to be playing at this point in the season,” he said. “They are very intelligent girls and they know the game well. They are very dedicated and they believe in what we are trying to accomplish and that’s to win the district championship and go to the state playoffs.

“We’ve already accomplished that goal of making it to the state playoffs.  We just have to stay focused and do what we do.”
