It was orange and black versus orange and black, two of the kingpins of the MAC playing for league and bragging rights.  Our photo essay of a thrilling Versailles win Tuesday, three games to one.

Versailles – It’s always fun when two really good teams square off, for league rights, for bragging rights, and well…just for fun.

Senior night in Versailles pitted Verailles (16-4) against Coldwater (15-3) and the competition turned out to be breathtaking.  That is, some of the rallies went so long, were so physically exhausting, that both teams had a tough time getting their breath.

After dropping the first game to Coldwater 30-28, Versailles came right back on the strength of a fabulous night by junior Danielle Winner  and Liz Ording (25 kills) to win in three straight, 25-19, 25-22, and 25-21.

For your viewing pleasure, photos of the action are provided by Press Pros photographer, Julie McMaken Wright:
