Thursday, C. Milton Wright's boys volleyball team seemed to take a quantum leap back to Oct. 17, 1989.
Once again, they had to a chance to win the county title outright if they knocked off John Carroll in the season finale. Last year, the Mustangs lost the deciding match and landed in a three-way tie with John Carroll and Bel Air.
Thursday the Mustangs were within a game of sole possession of the title when the ghost of October past began to dog them. The John Carroll reprise was short lived, however. The Mustangs won the match, 15-1, 15-3, 12-15, 15-3 to cap an 8-0 regular season. That gave the Mustangs sole possession of the county title, which they had shared with John Carroll (6-2) two of the past three years.
