Rose sweeps New Bern to advance to the 4A Eastern Finals

Volleyball State Tournament

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Just eleven days after being swept by the Bears, Rose got redemption on New Bern on Saturday, winning 3-0 in the 4A Quarter Finals.

The win sends the Rampants back to the Eastern Finals, where last season Rose beat Broughton on their way to a 4A state title.

This year, in the other quarter-final game today, top-seed Broughton was upset by 5-seed Cardinal Gibbons.

Thus, Rose will host Cardinal Gibbons on Tuesday in the 4A Eastern Finals.

The Rampants overcame an early deficit in the first set against New Bern to win 26-24.

After the first set, it was downhill for the Rampants.

Rose won the second set 25-10, and the third set 25-21 to move to 23-1 on the season.
