Undefeated Season?Posted Monday, October 17, 2011, at 2:55 AM
It doesn't happen often.
Only three times since 1975 and once in the last 16 years
Eight semoball schools -- Scott City, Bell City, Leopold, Bernie, Woodland, Bloomfield, Zalma and Clearwater -- have combined for 18 state titles in high school volleyball since 1975.
The 1987 Clearwater Tigers, 1992 Bloomfield Wildcats and 1995 Bernie Mules are the only semoball teams to finish with undefeated seasons during this stretch.
The 2011 Scott City Rams remain undefeated with two games to play in the regular-season. Scott City will host Cape Central Tuesday and state-ranked Perryville Wednesday before beginning Class 2 postseason play next week.
Scott City is currently ranked No. 1 in Class 2 and has a legitimate chance to win its second state title in three seasons.
One has to wonder if the Rams will indeed run the table and finish 2011 perfect.
See all semoball schools that have won state championships in volleyball since 1975 below (records taken from MSHSAA record book)
