Madison stayed undefeated on the season with a 3-set sweep of Clear Fork, Tuesday night in their conference opener at the Colt Corral. The Lady Rams fourth consecutive win has them sitting atop the OCC standings, where they plan to remain, but know it won't be easy.

Madison head coach Brian Votaw says he expects the battle for this years conference crown to be similar to last seasons.

"I think it's going to be as competitive as much as it was last year," Votaw says. "Just about everybody in the league we really had to fight to beat."

Madison's senior captain Katie Wagner also believes her Rams are in for a tough journey to an OCC crown.

"It's not gonna be an easy run to go undefeated or win the conference," Wagner says. "There's definitely gonna be work that's gonna have to be put in."

Wagner and junior teammate Kamilla Brown put in a lot of work against the Lady Colts on Tuesday night, connecting on a number set-spike combinations to help lead the charge. Brown says, "teams are gonna be coming after us since we're up in the OCC." She added, "we know people are going to be coming for us."

With an early-season target on their back, Madison will host conference for Wooster on Thursday night, before travelling to Orrville a week later to face the only team to beat them during the regular season in 2013. Twice.

The Rams will no doubt be looking to settle the score with the Red Riders, who figure to be one of the biggest threats to Madison's quest for an OCC championship.
