Make it four straight SEC White volleyball titles for the Dexter Dreadnaughts after a five-set barn burning win over Pinckney Tuesday night.

The Dreadnaughts entered the game 12-0 in the conference and needing a win to claim the outright title.

The Pirates gave them all they could handle as Dexter had to rally from a set down to beat Pinckney 25-18, 8-25, 24-26, 25-14, 15-11.

Maybe the first set win went to the Dreadnaughts heads and they thought they would cruise to the easy win, but the Pirates came out in the second set and rolled to the win to even the match, the third set was back and forth, with Pinckney taking the close set and taking a 2-1 match lead.


Dexter calmed down and played their game in the fourth set to pull even and pulled out a hard-fought fifth set to claim the fourth straight title dating back to 2016.

Quinn LaFontaine had a big night with 34 digs, 11 kills, and two aces to lead the Dreads.
