NORMAL – Nearly 30 years later, IC Catholic is once again the girls volleyball state champion.

The Knights made relatively short work of Edwards County, winning 25-15, 26-19 in the Class 2A state championship match Saturday at Redbird Arena. It was their first state title since 1984.

Delaney D'Amore tallied 11 kills and Rory Manion had 10 kills to lead the attack for IC, which finished the season with a 36-6 record. Kimmy Martino dished out 25 assists, and the defense was led by Manion (nine digs), Kerry Mulligan (eight digs) and D'Amore (seven digs).

The Knights reached the state title match with a 25-22, 25-17 win over defending state champ Deer Creek-Mackinaw in a state semifinal Friday.
