The Platteville volleyball team closed out one of the most memorable weeks in program history with a 25-23, 18-25, 25-22, 25-19 victory over Lancaster Thursday night to earn a share of Southwest Wisconsin Conference title.

The win forced a three-way split between Platteville (28-9-2, 8-2 SWC), Lancaster (23-9, 8-2) and Richland Center (27-7, 8-2). The Hillmen beat Richland Center on Tuesday to make the three-way tie possible.

Julia Lawinger floored 19 kills and made 15 digs, Tess Stecklein slammed 12 and Mackenzie Bartels added 11 kills and four blocks to lead the Hillmen attack.
