On Sunday (10/30), the St. Louise Girls JV Green Volleyball Team won the first-ever JV Volleyball Diocesan Championship in STL school history (over 25 years), capping off a remarkable regular season and playoff run against the other 38 JV teams in the Diocese!!!
After finishing the regular season in 2nd place in their Section with a 10-1 record, the young Lady Trojans were seeded #4 for the playoffs (out of 20 teams), behind undefeated #1 seed St. Thomas More, undefeated #2 seed St. Alphonsus, and undefeated #3 seed St. Elizabeth.
The Girls had a 1st round bye, and in the 2nd round on Monday (10/24), STL defeated #20 seed Mary of Nazareth 2-0 (25-13 & 25-9) to advance to the Elite Eight on Championship Sunday (10/30).
The Girls began the day on Sunday facing #5 seed St. Gabriel in the quarter-final round. After winning the 1st set 25-15, STL quickly jumped out to a 13-2 lead in the 2nd set and seemed to be in complete control. But several unforced errors and missed serves allowed the Gators to fight back and eventually win the set 26-24. Losing that set seemed to ignite the young Lady Trojans, as from that point on they elevated their play to their best level of the season for the rest of the day. STL made quick work of the young Gators in the 3rd set, winning 15-3 to earn a spot in the Final Four (which also included the Leagues three undefeated teams and top playoff seeds).
In their semi-final match, the young Lady Trojans put on a serving clinic (they only missed three serves for the entire match), and they crushed #1 seed St. Thomas More in straight sets (25-15 & 25-6) to advance to the Championship Match against undefeated St. Elizabeth.
In the Championship Match, STL coupled their serving dominance with superb court play and three-hit attacks to defeat the young Lady Lancers of St. Elizabeth 2-0 (25-16 & 25-16) to become the 2016 Girls JV Volleyball Diocesan Champions!!!
Congratulations JV Green on an AMAZING volleyball season!!!
