Trimble County volleyball ran its North Central Kentucky Conference win streak to 31 matches and in the process clinched its third-straight unbeaten NCKC championship.
The Lady Raiders, who haven't lost a league game since 2010, defeated Walton-Verona 25-12, 28-26 in Walton on Thursday. The victory completed a sweep through all seven NCKC teams this season. The conference only counts the first match against league teams toward the standings.
"That was our third conference championship in three years. Three conference titles and three All "A" titles. It's pretty special," Trimble coach Ruth Staples said. "It was a back and forth the entire (second) game but we rallied at the end. Our serve reception wasn't great but all that matters is the win."
Paige Black had 17 kills to lead Trimble and was also 6-for-6 serving with two aces and had four blocks. Sydney Weaver was 18-for-18 serving with an ace and a kill, Kayla Baker was 11-for-14 serving with five aces and two kills and Kayla Greenwood was 4-for-5 serving with two aces, six kills and four blocks.
Kate Staples was 22-for-23 in sets, Raven Hudson was 13-for-14 in sets and Shelbe Black had two kills and a block.
Trimble County, now 10-9 overall and 7-0 in the NCKC, hosts Gallatin County on Monday.

Madison volleyball rolled over Henryville in three games Thursday on the road.
The Lady Cubs won game one 25-21 over the Hornets but pulled away in the final two games, winning 25-19 and 25-17.
Emily Holland had nine kills and five blocks for the Cubs. Macky Hecox had six kills, was 7-for-8 in digs and 14-for-19 in serve reception. Abigail Demaree was 9-for-9 serving and 12-for-15 in receptions, Whitney Wynn had six kills, Olivia Crozier had four blocks, Katie Hartman was 18-for-18 serving with two aces, and Delany Liter was 8-for-8 in serving.
