Brittney Herrick had a match-high 13 kills Thursday, leading undefeated Oneonta High to a 3-0 volleyball sweep of visiting Johnson City in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference.

OHS (4-0, 4-0) also received match-bests from Krissy Wells (17 assists) and Annie Nobiling (five aces) during its 25-6, 25-14, 25-18 triumph.

“We got up quickly and we stayed up,” OHS coach Lee Ferrara said. “Everybody got a chance to play a little bit tonight. JC is very young so it’s a down year for them, but they’ll be back.”

Morgan Chilson’s six assists paced the Wildcats.

Oneonta visits Windsor on Tuesday, then hosts defending Section Four Class B champion Owego on Thursday. The Yellowjackets fell to Owego in the last two sectional finals, but they won’t have to face the Indians in the postseason this year. Ferrara said Oneonta and Windsor dropped to Class C for volleyball this season while Owego remained in Class B.

Oneonta advanced to the last two Class B sectional title matches by beating Windsor.

Kayli Dickinson’s nine assists and five digs paced the Trojans (1-4), who visit Deposit on Tuesday.

Unatego travels to Oxford on Tuesday.
