Once again the Dexter and Chelsea volleyball teams will face off in a winner take all SEC White title-deciding match Tuesday night.

The two teams have rolled through the other six White opponents in the pre-season jamboree and conference play.

The only difference in the standings is the Dreadnaughts defeated the Bulldogs in the jamboree in a hard-fought two-set match 25-21, 25-19 back in August.


Dexter will enter the match with a 13-0 record in the conference while Chelsea’s record stands at 12-1.

While both have reached the point with unblemished records, the two have gotten to the showdown with slightly different roads.

The Dreadnaughts have controlled most of their SEC White matches, sweeping all the jamboree matches and only losing just one set in the SEC White regular season. Dexter will enter the match with a 28-11 overall record.

The Bulldogs, on the other hand, have been taken to five sets three times during the regular season, including their last two league matches against Adrian and Pinckney. Despite the rougher road to get there all that matters is that the Bulldogs are there with a chance to win the league title. The Bulldogs will take a 22-15 overall record into the match.

While historically¬†over recent years the winner of Chelsea and Dexter has claimed the top spot in the SEC White, it is a new thing for two people. Both head coaches Chelsea’s Erin Dillon and Dexter’s Liz Palmer will be leading their teams into the showdown in their first season at the helm of the varsity squads.

Not only is the game for the league title, but it is also the annual Volley for the Cure Dig Pink match. Both teams are raising money for breast cancer research and are selling t-shirts to students and fans for the match. They will be having other fund raisers at the match Tuesday night in Chelsea at 7:00.
