ik and gets another kill.>>If
you are Cedar Falls expect it to go to Kubik.She’s
the top hitter in the state. >>469 kills. The next highest total, 128.Next
play, no call by the officials, we play on. The sideline, that is Wolff with
her first kill. >>That is what a good setter
can do. What an a pretty set and hit. >>Great picture, that many
cameras working the championship here today inside the trucks.
And running cameras as well.To the outside. Tigers let it go.A point for
Cedar Falls. It is confusing, they’re both
Tigers. >>Does make it difficult.>>If
the ball is to her left, she know it is out.>>Cedar Falls
gets the ace out of the sophomore. That is just her eighth ace of
the year.Was WDM Valley let it go.Probably should have played
that instead.>>You think it is going out, you don’t play it,
it lands in.It is safer to do that now than a few points later
whenthe set is coming down to the wire.>>WDM Valley getting
the kill out of Kubi KI6, again
looking at her stats she averages 5.3 kills per set. She’s efficient.329 hitting
percentage.>>Awesome.>>For being set so many times and
teams to key on her defensively to be efficient
is incredible.>>It is incredible and whatwe like to
compare it to is when everybody kind of knowsbatting averages
and what isa good batting average, 300 is pretty good. In volleyball same thing.300 is
a good hitting efficiency.If she’s 329 for the season,that is
amazing.>>WDM Valley leading, serving.Wolff has to alter her
body to get the attempt. It works for the Cedar Falls
point.>>We haven’t seen Cedar Falls setter Maahi do anything yet.She just
moved to the front row, we may see something here soon. >>Mahe, 99 kills in the regular
season. Smart decision on her part.Just over the back on the
net cam.Couldn’t get to it. Burke a senior playing division
1 volleyball.The attack from Lynch at Illinois next year. Burken point makes it 9-11. >>Burken does a great job of
controlling the net, Wichita state will love that next we’re. >>Last touched by WDM Valley.
That is Brown who is an impact player on this team.>>She has
a little bit of athleticism in her family.Her sister played at
University of Kentucky and was a great player for Kentucky.>>Cas Brown a four year starter
at Kentucky.>>She said I want to win itfor my teammates and
my sister who never one at Cedar
Falls. >>There is Akacia Brown.She’s a
young sophomore, look at the play. Look at the celebration.Fun, right?>>It
should be fun.Too many times, too source or too nervous, it
should befun, you should enjoy the journey.I like Brown because
she’s aggressive.Young and aggressive and does things well.
She serves well, attacks well, staying aggressive throughout. I lo love that in young players.
>>The net cam.Perfect placement.Seeing the run. WDM Valley needed that side Ends
with service there.out or else would have called a time-out soon here.>>
You want to stop the teamfrom too many runs.When you get the
ball back, push for a run opinion when they get the ball,
make surethey can’t push for a run.>>Tied 7-7.And 12-9. Here’s the set.Lynch is stuffed.
Perfect position. You as a former coach and middle blocker.That it is
technical.>>All four arms pushed overthe net.We call that
penetrating over the net, nowhere for the ball to go,
except down.>>13-10, a top service areais the three points
to Cedar Falls as the labero goes back to
serve.Another talented senior. Abby Hendrikson.Into the net. An attack error with WDM Valley.
Cedar Falls. A time-out for Valley, they’ll
talk things over.Let’s listen to the Valley huddle. We’re not doing as well passing
as they are.I like the 10 points, they have 14 because
they are getting out more on their serve. Let’s stay focused and poises,
we have to have our note cleaned.We’ll run back to base
and center and read.Make sure that first is up.That is a
simple thing rightnow.OK.Have that poise, take that breath, do
what we need to do to get calm and focus.Thesis are simple
things.We’re in the moment because we’re not good.What do we do?
[Cheers]>>Blocking movements. Play those.Out wide.[Buzzer]>>
wonderful guidance, leadership and coaching by coach Mikesell.
>>I love when they come into the huddle, he’s like this is
really cool.And he’s so calm.I love it, that is what teams need in this situation. He’s an instrument coach, in
volleyball eight years at West Des Moines Valley.However Cedar
Falls another point.It is the first kill of the morning, out
of Lynch who had a huge semifinal selectry — victory over lind
mar.>>I will make a bold prediction and say that is not
her last.>>I don’t think that is a bold prediction, to be
honest.>>As bold as I get.>> 254 kills on the year, leading
the tigers offensively.A five-point lead for Cedar Falls,
beautiful placement across court, getting the kill. It is mace comes at youmore slowly, but
moves in the air like a knuckleball.You think you are in
perfectposition and it will shank off your arms.It is like
six of one, half dozen of the other. >>Barb Randall the analyst in
this match.The athletic girl association.Recently inducted in
the hall of fame at the University of Iowa, as an all
American, educating me on the sport of volleyball as we watch
the teams as well. On a run here is West Des Moines
Valley.And they need to, as we’re past the halfway point of
this opening set.That will go in for the sophomore Brown.Here’s the
replay.She’s attacking that back row.>>You can see that time,
valley’s block did not get out there early, they get set and
float it and Brown took advantage of them floating and hit it over them. Returned by Kubik.Returned by Cedar Falls.
Valley wins that point.I think Kubik was surprised to see that
that was returned back to Valley’s side of the net.>>
Absolutely.Anytime the first ball is sent over like that, you
arein the middle of transitioning to where you are
supposed to go, so a lotof times it catches players off guard.
Valley did a nice job of making up for it.>>Refills already
for the talented Kubik.Played U.S.A. junior national team. Look at that hustle!It is the
Cedar Falls point? You got to love the effort and hustle out of the labero. The junior, Cameron.>>All of
the coaches are getting out of the way.>>Brown,
block attempt.The run continues for Valley.20-17 our score. And let’s see if they can make
— volleyball is a game of momentum Barb.>>Absolutely.
>>Valley goes to the secondset, surge 17-6.They don’t need that
big of a surge, but need something trailing here by 3.>>
They want it and just like that.Take the opportunity when they get it.So Cedar Falls is
taking their first time-out of the match.We’ll take a look at
the last kill.And then we’ll listen in to the Cedar Falls
huddle.>>A 3-0 run, take a look atthe Cedar Falls huddle.
Trying to stop this Valley run. >>Taking the ball.The other
thing we’re doing is setting the wrong people up.If you are off
in it, you can’t let the player go that
long.You have that out there.If you don’t like where a ball is
at, we’re a good enough defensive team.You don’t need to
feel like every ball needs to go to the floor.Our hitting
errors are trying to be too good.Good enough defensive team,
other balls.A great defensive team, takeit up, get the next
swing.Don’t feel like every ball his to — [indiscernible].>>Johnson’s 14th year as a
coach.I don’t know who is calmer.>>Yeah!They’ve been
here before.They know what it takes and what their teams need.
He’s right, they’re a good enough team you don’t have to go
if not in good position.Make a good choice.A good choice so it
is difficult.But then like he said, live to see other bump.>>
A costly service error. They had a number of those here good serve out of Brown.
Over the net. Down for the kill, when they
have.That they have the kill.>> They’re in the slide, and
putting it in the back of the Court makes it hard to defend.
All of the defenders tend tomove up.>>For Cedar Falls, makes
it20 hav 19 score. We pray to 25, win by two. Checking in is Emily as Brown heads to the sideline Olivia coming in as a sophomore, lots of different
classes in this Valley team.Big minutes.Side the sideline Lynch
withthe kill. >>At the end of the set Lynch
will be the one that Mahi sets mostly, because she’s the one
that pulls them through many of the
matches.The communication on both sides of the net. Valley back set.Little tip. It was a good swing by Schuette.West Des Moines
Valley again.It is one of the things theydo best.>>Lynn, you
could tell her contact was underneath the ball.She didn’t
push it high overown the blocker’s hands.So when you roll
that, you have to also give it a little lift, little umph.>>We
saw Stephanie Twit with the block. Coming back Lombardy started
this set behind the strong serve.>>She did.If you are a
Valley tiger, this is one of the favorite
rotations. Kubik, front row, Lombardy serving missiles.>>Great transition.Great job
getting off the netto Mahi can set her. >>– net so Mahi can set her. >>How to stop that from
happening?>>Through the block. Cedar Falls gets the point. Cedar Falls wins the first set. The tight battle, final score
25-21.That he pushes it over. Valley out of position.Let’s go
to a break and we’ll be back with more from
Cedar Rapids for the class 5A championship match.>>Welcome back to our broadcast
here on Iowa Public Television. Bee we started the class 5A
match. Eric Braley, Barb Randall here.
We have seen some great volleyball.>>We have seen
great volleyball, but both teams can pick it up.Both should work
on crispingit up.>>Look at highlights from the opening set.
What are some statistics that jump out at you from the first
set as we watch the highlights Barb?>>The statistics that
stand out to me, Cedar Falls is
hitting and Valley is hitting 103.They want to
increase that.Cedar Falls has 16 digs to Valley’s 8 digs.That
makes a difference in the hitting efficiency.>>Looking
at leaders in offense. Burken and GERDes with four
kills Cedar Falls.Three kills for Lynch for West Des Moines
Valley, Kubik with four kills no onewith more than one kill
besides her.So needing to get balance there. Breaking huddles, getting ready
for second set. Linmar said we have weak
position, score a point hereor there, they get two or three,
you look up and you are down six or seven points.That is there.
Have a lot of weaknesses.>>It is almost like weight gain.So if
you gain a point or two a year, it doesn’t seem like that much.
But in 20 years we have gained 20 or 40 pounds.So Cedar Falls
kind of does that to you. They score score, but it doesn’t
seem that many, but pretty soon looking at a score that is
20-12.It is a monster difference.When they have the
ball, side out.>>Kubik holds her own record.31 kills in just
three games.Right now, she’s sitting at four through the
first set.Really, when the semifinals are tight Valley focused on
being aggressive and keeping their composure.They’re going to
need to do that trailing 1 set to 0.First
point of the second set.Kubik with the kill.>>Both teams
start same ways in the rotations.So we should have
similar matchups.>>Valley being led by Jeremy Mike cell who —
Mikesell.260 of his wins at West Des Moines Valley.Tigers even
things out with the Gerdes point.I like for the Cedar Falls
Tigers how aggressive they are in the net WOIR that is the key to any great team.>>We
talked about the serving of Lynch. Scores a point for Cedar Falls,
their first for the set. >>Good job my Brown, being
astute.They get it in the back and touch it.>>It is there, it will
givethe point to West Des MoinesValley at 2-2. Valley hit 39 as a team, against centennial yesterday.
What can you do to increase your hitting percentage and be more efficient?>>It takes a few things.Swing
smartly.One thing that counts against you in efficiency is
error.Make sure you keep the ball in the Court.Because that
is better than hitting the ball out.If you are
stroking the ball, until you start feeling into your groove
andthen start taking swings.>> And to be critical here, we’re
seeing a lot of service errors. Is that because of the nerves or
combination of aggressive serving?They’re not serving
lollipops.>>They’re not serving lollipops.I think both
things play into it.To beat Cedar Falls who has all the
offensive weapons inthe world and a setter that can run
anything.You need to be aggressive with your serving so
hopefully it knocks the ballto places the setter can’t get to
or when she can, has to set a poor ball.That is one of the
keys for West Des Moines Valley is they want to make sure
they’re just pushing that ball and trying to get as much out of
it as they can from the service line. >>[Indiscernible] back to West
Des Moines Valley. Miscommunication on Cedar Falls
side.The free ball.Valley has it.Outside, Kubik has it.Good
swing, scrambling, Cedar Falls. Setting near sideline.They let
it go.Was it touched?>>Yes.>> Point, West Des Moines Valley.
Again, they have more weapons than just Maddie Kubik,
the leader in class 5A offensively.>>You can see
that.Because they’re certainly setting everywhere.Kubik isn’t
the only one getting sets, although she’sgetting the
majority of them.Maybe part of the plan for set 2 is to spread
that out a little bit. >>Cynthia Wolff signed two days
ago to sign at northernIowa.>> What sport?>>Basketball.>>
She’s a traitor.>>She has options.>>She’s 6’3″.Love that
on the right side.Nice big block.Hits the ball well from
the right side.Not everybody does.The ball has to cross from
the right hander, that is hard.I was not good on the right side.
>>Valley on the left side. Smart playboy the sophomore
Brown to do it off the block. That can be seen, and winds up
and hits it as hard as she can off the hand.>>When the ball
is set tight to the block, you haveoptions.You don’t have to
allow it to be a trap set.You can try to push the balloff and
out of bounds so no defender can play it. >>With the service error.In the
regular season, she was so good behind the service line. Double digits, service aces.30.
Here’s a look at warringablyone of the best players in the state
of Iowa.Committed to play in Nebraska.Another one of the best
states in the player.Mahi.She calls her own number.Oh, guess
what, one of them is herself.>> Mahi is great at that.I’m
surprised we haven’t seen it more out of her.Because in the
other matchesshe’s played this week at state.She’s been
offensive minded.So that, I think is, as a wolf is — a first attempt at
that.If I am Mahi, I’m thinking that is offensive.Nice look at
this.You can see the arms pushed over the net by Lynch.Brown with Cedar Falls,
nice job keeping that alive an an — by anonson.In the opening
set, Cedar Falls won by 4, 25-21.You can see there on the
block, how the block didn’t steal the antenna.It depends on
the defense.She went through the antennaand blocker.>>Valley on
the outside.Good roll shot.Near side, Lynch.Beautiful defense. Scrappy Valley play. Lynch has a lot of shots in the
arsenal.That point will go to Valley.>>She does have a lot
of shots in the arsenal.That was hindered because itdid roll
along the net.We’ll see her hitting sharp,deep cross court.
Line, attacking from the back row quite a few times.>>In this season, the labero
position for Valley.One of the main reasons they’re playing for the title. The slide and celebration.The timing the
extension.When you hit the slide. You almost want to chase the ball and be behind it.You can
have full range of the Court.>> This is Valley’s first
appearance in the 5A state championship match.Neither of these schools
have won a championship in volleyball.That will change here
in a little bit.>>I think Cedar Falls’s block is a little
early.The block –>>Early?>> Jumping early.When the ball is
crossing the net, they’re on the way down, that makes it easier in the backfield. There is a great point greatjob here.For Iowa
Public Television we’re just getting started. Bring you 5A, 4A, 3A, 2A, and 1A, all day long from Cedar
Rapids. Valley has it.Taylor Lynch is starting to
take over here in the secondset. That is her fifth kill.Here’s a
look at the replay.That is the shot by Valley.>>You see the
arms pushed over the net.A nice job hitting the handshigh.Nobody
was able to play it.>>Go inside the Valley huddle.>>
Turn the ball.Pick up everything.Make sure we make
touches.These are the line.That is what we do.Run with the
slide.Don’t wait for the ball set.See the setter then go.See
and read.We have to understand that.Get on that.Defensively
know what we’re doing.That corner is perfect.Continue in
the back row.Stay big out there. Stay big, one time, one time.
Tigers!>>We appreciate all the coaches letting us put a
microphone on them so we can bring you, the viewers of Iowa Public Television a
behind-the-scenes look at what goes on with the chemistry,
coaching, chess game, if you will, of putting the student
athletesin the best position to do well and win a championship.>>Coach Mikesell has a nice staff that he works with. Shannon who led you and I’s
first sweat 16.>>Shannon Perry was her name at that point.
that point.>>Perry was her name at>>Always good to have
experience of players that have found success in the division 1
level.The Tigers are on a run here.As we’re just about halfway through this second set. It starts with a nice pass.>>
Well, and Lynch is doing a great — I will call it yo-yo
job.Just kind of playing chess. Hammering them to go deep.
Tipping balls.Using blocker’s hands and roll it over the
blocks. So a lot of difference that puts
the defense on awareness, you can’t sit back on your heels,
you haveto be ready for anything.>>Mahi, the setter
for Cedar Falls.Her father is the assistant coach at UNI.Was
the head coach at the University of Oklahoma.Her mother was an
assistant coach at Oklahoma and Illinois state as well Cedar Falls with that team, the
teammate, Graceland.A small world, everything isconnected in
the sport of volleyball.>>It is a small world in the sport of
volleyball, that is true.>>A much-needed side out and stop
for West Des MoinesValley. They’re the second-ranked team
in the state in class 5A.They’ve had a tremendous year.41-7.CIML
central champions. Right now, playing for the
school’s first-ever chance to win a volleyball title. In the attack there, goes long.
Cedar Falls leading by 5.>>At that time, it almost seemed like
Kubik was nervous about hitting that ball.She kind of rolled it
and rolled it deep. >>Lynch with that high jump
serve.Service air. And Valley with the point.Barb,
there are different types of serving, different defenses as
well.Are they playing similar types here in this 5A final?>>
They are.It looks like both teams areplaying a perimeter or
player back defense.Some from the left side attack and right
side attack.That defense leaves the deepcorners wide open.It
leaves the middle of the Court wide open.But the deep corners,
I likecorners.to call them the golden If you have any question
about what to do with the ball, send it to the deep corner
because it is hard todefend.>> A beautiful court.Brand-new
court. With the high school girls
athletic union.Talking with their director, the branding of the pink. We have two to go.She’s trying to
create the pink awareness.>>And they all
have the pink shoes, pink ties, wear pink shirts.They made the
Court pink.We’re in pink today. They’re trying to make sure that
they’re getting that brand out there.>>Trying to
bring it up a couple of notches. You saw the fog machine as they
ran out of the entrance.The ticket punch.Honoring the Iowa
girls.>>They want to make it special.They want to make it
specialfor the players today and they understand the history of
what has happened with female athletes.So this whole week,
they have in between the first and
second set, asked for any former Iowa woman that played sports
in high school in Iowa to stand up and be
honored.Their slogan is once an Iowagirl, always an Iowa girl.As
an Iowa girl, I will always be an Iowa girl, no matter where I
live. >>Extremely proud of that.
Meanwhile, Mahi, also here, calls her own number.The
quarterback of Cedar Falls. Here’s the replay.She has
options, find her, in front of her.Instead uses the last hand
for the kill. >> And gion is right there with
her.But Mahi is so crafty.>> Down the line for the kill!
Hanging tough, West Des Moines Valley.They don’t want to drop
the second set and go down 2-0. >>You can see how much roomMahi
gets for the line to behit.So if you have got five or 6 feet
at the net, that means you’ve got, you know, 10
to 12 to 15 feet at the back of the Court. Hit it in the alley, and you’ll
have good luck.>>Back court kill.Brown, sideline to
sideline,that ain’t easy, folks. Here’s a look at the replay.>>
Yeah, you say that easy.It isn’t that easy.>>I said it ain’t
that easy.Go to the Cedar Falls Tigershuddle.>>They have no
idea what todo.They’re running after you here and there.Stay in
system.Focus on getting the ball.The thing is we’re doing a nice job on out of system
points.When we have an in-system ball, you know we’re scoring90%
of the time.Make sure we stay inside against the left out there.And
bring it in.This is a good shot accident being ready to run through
everything.>>This feels like they can play from behind.Earn some
defensive points.>>Tigers!>> Great coaching by Matthew
Johnson.You can’t sleep on West Des Moines Valley or they’re
going to make you pay.41-7 on the year.And even though they’re
trailing by 5, Valley has all the weapons in the worldto come
back and win this second set.>> They absolutely do.Not just the
weapons, but the belief.They’ve done it a million times, aren’t
even worried about the score right now.>>Ball handling
error. Into the net.Point Cedar Falls.
Even if Cedar Falls does hold on, win go up 2-0, we saw it
several times yesterday in the semifinals
where the team wins the next three.>>We’ll see some of them
later this afternoon.But that’s the sport of volleyball.All of
the players, there isn’t a player in the state tournament
who has not come back from a deficit.That is the sport.The
pendulum of momentum swings back and forth.So you know when you
are down in a set, doesn’t matter.When you are down two
sets, doesn’t matter.As long as you keep believing in yourself
and running your game plan, you have a shot.>>Service error
again.That makes the Cedar Falls lead 6.We play to 25.Win by 2.
Barb, what does Valley need to do to continue to improveto
come back and win either the second set or at least get the
momentum heading into the third set?>>I will blame it on their
defense right now. Because it seems like Cedar
Falls Tigers are able to getthe balls put down.Not a lot of
pinballing around by the Valley defense.If Valley could get more
touches on the ball and extend the rally that will give them a
better shot at serving the point.>>Tough serve handled by
Cedar Falls.Cracking this one down.They got to hit it over.Now
the free ball over to Cedar Falls.Back, set, slide. Off the hand skill.Gerdes with
the point.She will play visible division 1 at South Dakota.Mahi
at UNI.Lynch playing at Illinois state. Burken at Illinois state. And another at UNI.Five division
1 signees on this team. Kubik just a junior.>>She’s on
everybody’s radar because she’s spent time with the U.S.A.
junior team. She’s going to Nebraska and can spend her senior year in
relaxation.She wasn’t have all of the issues with committing.
She’s a great player and haslots of potential.>>Tigers largest
lead, fourth kill by Mahi, the setter.And now inching closer
and closer to the 25 points theyneed.Good camera
angle behind Lynch.I don’t know how you are supposed to get a
good pass out of that.They go with it.Get the side out.>>We talk about — here is a
lefty.You heard Matthew Johnson say something about the lefty
stay. Twit goes up and uses her smarts
to tip it over the black.>> Twit with 91 kills in theregular
season.A couple of here in this championship match.>>Another
center line violation.>>You can’t go into the net.You can’t
go under the net.Valley has done it twice here in the last five
minutes.It was three points for Cedar Falls.>>Those are
difficult points.Because your foot can touch the line, it just
can’t be over the line.So when it goes over the line, you are
then in the playing area of the other team. So it could be dangerous.>>Cedar Falls in the white top,
Valley in the black andorange. That is the sophomore Brown off
the block of Valley.That point for Cedar Falls.If you look at
this replay again.>>Watch she’s out of bounds.She’s trying
to hit those so that she gets it and not in perfect position to hit the ball.Set point Cedar Falls. Kubik has nine kills already.31 justice
in the sweep of centennial yesterday in the finals. Brown sails it deep.West Des
Moines Valley, goodcommunication on their side,defensively.>>
Very good communication.That was close.But as you play the game,
you get to know the dimensions. You have a feel for those.>>Set point for Cedar Falls.The
tip not returned. Cedar Falls jumps out to a two
set to 0 lead.They need one more victory to claim the school’s
first-ever state championship in volleyball. Here’s a look at that final
point by Brown.>>Nice step.>>Back with more from Cedar
Rapids as Cedar Falls leads two sets to none in the 5A
finals, you are tuned into Iowa Public Television.>>Cedar Falls one win away from
winning the title for their school.And West Des Moines
Valley is looking to see what they can do to get that title.Eric
Braley, Barb Randall.Let’s go down some of the statistics.One
thing that jumps out, really efficient with the attack, 328 and 32 kills.
However, West Des Moines Valley hitting 155 and 17 kills.That’s
not going to cut it.>>That will not cut it. Another nice thing for Cedar
Falls is their hitting 328.They have the sets among theplayers
whereas West Des Moines Valley, they have a total of 58 sets and
over half of them are going to Kubik.They need to make sure
they spread that out. >>Kubik has nine kills, hitting
167. On the other side, Curtis and
Brown with 7.Burken with five, in the center Mahi with 3. Great balance with Cedar Falls.
That is one of the reasons they have the lead.>>Cedar Falls
has 11 more digs than West Des Moines Valley.West Des Moines
Valley nodesto basically, for lack of a better term, go wall to the
balls they need to have people chasing down everything or this
could be a short morning for them.>>The referees westerner, Moser and Kocour and Trout.We
have a Cedar Falls point to start this third set.Cedar Falls
last year steam rolled their way through thechampionship
match in 5A butdid not perform at their best as centennial won the third
straight title.Tigers returned everybody. They won 48 consecutive sets.
Last time they lost a set was September.>>Amazing.>>They
returned everyone after last year’s tremendous run and set a school record,42
wins this year.>>The last time they lost amatch was September.
But also the last time they lost a set was September.It is
absolutely an amazing fete. >>Two sets to 0 lead for Cedar
Falls.3-0 lead here in the third set.Here’s a look. That is Lynch and Gerdes with the block.>>You
could see the timing was off with the two blockers jumping.
They were there solidly and punched over the net. >>Mikesell has done a wonderful
job at West Des Moines Valley. He said Maddie does Maddie things.31 kills yesterday.They
have been held in checka little bit.Part of that is difficult
because she doesn’t have a lot of offense to help take the
weight off her shoulders.So when Cedar Falls puts them in a
difficult position, they don’t — WestDes Moines Valley doesn’t
have a lot of other options at this point.>>Lynch with the
service error, gives the point to Valley on the side out.Last year
when Cedar Falls was here, they were facing the loud factor
playing in the championship match.Now the chance to redeem
themselves.They don’t seem to be struggling with that so far
today.>>They really don’t. They’re very poised.And they go
about their business.That is why one of the things that was a
key to West Des Moines Valley winning this match is I think
you really have to upset their composure and you do that by
giving them arun for their money.They just haven’t been
able to do that. >>4-3, Valley on a run to start
the third set. Even things around on the scoreboard..It is happening so
fast.The nice thing about it is you can see the block up there
with Mahi.Gerdes is up with her. Mahi can get her against the
single block.And against the single block, most hitters can
do a lot of damage.It is a serve. Jumping for joy celebration,is
graves the sophomore.You have a couple of sophomores on Valley
and Cedar Falls.Barb, it is a big deal to get here as a coach
and as astudent athlete. A big deal to be here as an
announcer.>>Absolutely. Favorite day of the year.>>
Good day to be here as a referee as well.They have a process.
They don’t let any referees come and do the championshipmatches
today.>>Cedar Falls another point.>>You may think at home,
itis just any referee that gets here.It isn’t.They have a
process and it is tough.So each season, after each match,
coaches rate the officials.And they get to nominate officials
for the state tournament for the next year.So you have to be
nominated by a coach.>>You have to be good.>>You have to
be very good.While here at the state tournament, they have
evaluaors that are watchingthem every match and the evaluators
after each match take them in, the whole floor
crew will take them into the locker room, say here’s how your
mechanics were, juror judgment, that kind of thing.They’re here
and learning how to get better.>>They just jam pack a lot of
excitement into this. You have 5A, 4A, 3A, 2A, 1A
title. The Cedar Falls has proven 9-3.A
5-0 run by Cedar Falls.You look at the replay. >>This is mental blocking
contortionism.You go where the ball is.>>We’ll listen in the
Tigers huddle of Cedar Falls.>> The worst thing that can happen
is up 6.Beautiful, we’ll win this by6.You have to come out,
fight for defensive points every rotation.We’re winning with her
through the front row. We won’t win this match by six
points.We push every server back and focus on that extension.We
have done a lot of good work on getting out of the timing.That
is hitting the spot, don’t be surprised if they move her for a front too, we have to push the ball neutral.
>>Keep it up. >>Hey, if they –>>The coaches
are so good.It is almost like they have a script that they
read off the cue card on what to say.>>
The her they’re talking about is Madi Kubik.They’re probably
going to goto her more in this set to get back in the match.
They said be aware, they mayrun her around for a two.But they
run her to the back.>>Back alive action.And continue with
the side out. Valley desperately needed this stop on the 5-0.Looking at
volleyball forever, Barb, as a player, a coach.Why will she
have success next year and potentially atthe United States
level?>>Yeah, I think she’s good because she’s got
potential.And I think that a lot of players in high school have
either hit their potential and aren’t going to go any further, but I think she’s
athletic, has potential, she really seems to understand the
game.She can kind of take controlof the match.That is a
big deal when you can take control of the match.>>The
leader in 5A in kills.Overpass. And this sophomore Brown makes
them pay.11-4, Cedar Falls. Again, I want you to watch the kills. But watch the celebration.Having fun, trying
to win a title for the senior class of Cedar Falls.Gerdes cut it.It
was — I think –>>Here’s what happen.She hit it across court.
It was out of bounds, it wasalso in the net.Either way, it is
Valley’s point.>>A deep pull here. 11-5 is the score. Here’s Anonson the libero.>>
You heard the coach talk about the worst thing they could do is
win by six>>Kill. points.>> He’s saying at that pointall you
have to do is side out, side out, and you stay ahead by six
points.What he wants them to do is make sure they don’t just
side out, side out.That whatever they get a ball, they push for
more points and when West Des Moines Valley gets more point,
they push for more points.>> They’re not rolling over in the third set.Grace has the kill.
And they have six into the next replay of this slide.>>
Not just this particular play, the defense we saw in that rally
is what West Des Moines Valley needs to get back into this.>>
Off the top of the net onthe serve.That is legal.Through the
block. Down to the kill.Judy, the
junior with the kill, that’s her third.The 5A
regular season wrapped up with this.Cedar Falls number 1,
Valleynumber 2, centennial number 3 and Cedar Rapids
Jefferson.Len mark.And urban Dale.It has come down to this.
Number one versus number two.If you are just tuning in, the
toire of Cedar Falls won the first set 25-21.Cedar Falls
won the second set 25-19.And they’re in the driver’s seat
right now in the third,up 13-7. Big kill. You don’t have to be up close to
the net for a kill.>>She’s so good at that, I’m not sure why
they’re notblocking those. >>Set record this year, 100-7,
how spectacular is that?>>Pretty.>>Little tip.That is
the point. We’re at the halfway point, with Cedar Falls leading 14-8.
>>That is so nice, Gerdes is up there tipping here andthere.
Cedar Falls gets the ball back. Mahi knows the middles are
there, go back to it.They’re basically playing and having fun
with them.>>14-8, Cedar Falls in white on the left of the TV
screen.And the black and orange is West Des Moines Valley.Is it
seems like the momentum continues to build for Cedar
Falls, the team that has not lost a set since September.A team that
barely lost in the championship last year.>>Valley doesn’t
know what to expect with Cedar Falls.They don’t know which
hitterwill get it.They have three kill leadersin the front
row.Mahi has her pick of the litter. >>Another time-out.16-8,
doubling up the Tigersof West Des Moines Valley. >>We have to see the balls
coming over.Sink or swim, that is all itis.They want the
service.They have done it all day.Anticipate that.Drop.We’re
not playing server C.We’re scattered.Calm down.On service.
Setters get it off the net.Go 10, we can get a turn, make it a
swing.Stuck on the net.Rally and run balls.That is a hard
thing to do in transition with these guys.Get off the net.Make
the set.Pass, simple, simple, simple.Let’s go guys. We have been here, let’s go.>>
Tigers!>>They have been in this situation before.What does
he mean when he says getting stuck in the net?>>The balls
are coming up too night to the — too tight to the net. It is hard for the setters to do
anything with it.When he says seek spin seek.When the ball is
spinning off the serve, get behind the spin of it.If it is
spinning sideways, drop your shoulder and get behind the
spin.>>The attack here, the Cedar Falls lead grows 17-8.
Appreciate the translation, Barb, from coach speak to layman’s team, as Mahi has made
a living behind the service.Wolf tries to go sideline to
sideline.Attack, there.Final he a time-out for Valley as they go
with the rotation to check in is Jasmine span.>>We should
probably talk about the offense that the teams run, also.Cedar
Falls runs a 5-1.Mahi is in all the way around.She sets from the
front court and back court. Valley runs a 6-2.That means
when the setter is in the front row, a hitter comes in.The
setter is always settingfrom the back row.>>Valley now in the
double digits but trailing by 7. We play to 25 win by 2.Cedar
Falls needs to win onemore set. They’re the championship —
mishit ball for Gerdes.It is must. Win for Valley.They have
to win the third, fourth and fifth in order tobe the class 5A
champion.Eric Braley, Barb Randall with the calls.We
welcome you to the Iowa Public Television Valley championships.
>>It is no small feet for Valley — small fete are Valley
to win her, they havebeen in similar situations.They can do
it.>>You can’t have miscues. You have to play perfect here on
out in this third set because they’re trailingby 7.Back set.
Good attack. The outside.Just at the net.A
little block party going on.West Des Moines Valley, finding ways
to score through serving, through their kills and through
blocks.>>They’re finding ways to stop Cedar Falls from runs,
but they aren’t really finding ways to score.What they need to
do is get a point so they can start their own run.That is what
is going to getthem back in this.>>Great shot of the large
crowd here at the 5A finals the U.S. Cellular center in Cedar Rapids.Good swing.Kept
alive. And a whistle.That will go
against Cedar Falls.Another way to find points.A miscue by Cedar
Falls.We’ll see a time-out called by Cedar Falls’s Johnson.
His 14th year of coaching.Fourth year Cedar Falls won a state title in state city.
consider.That lead is for you to I think we’re doing a good job
of staying in the system.Passing the ball well.There is only so
many times they can dig us and handle us in a system like that.
Make sure you stay with the ball.One big switch here.We have
got Herot right.Go hard, pull that middle.You want to leave
here on the outside or 32? Outside?Go big, think fast.Let’s
go!>>Tigers! >>You have options.>>He said you have options.Sure
does.>>She’s one of the few withmany options on the Court.
Option after option after option.>>She had the option of
where to play volleyball. Whether it was sand volleyball
or conventional volleyball like we see today.She plays year
round with club volleyball and sand volleyball.I’m sure that
happened playing sand with 2-2 with playing this style here.Trying
to get a point for Cedar Falls. >>She and her partner won a
national championship on the beach.She’s a very good beach
player.Completely different games.The ball handling required
for both help in each area.It is a different game.Different
size court.There are different rules.So it helps but it is not
completely the same.>> Volleyball definitely surging as
a sport in the United States. Valley with the kill. Men’s division 1 volleyball,
division 2 and 3 division visible programs.At the high
school level, boys volleyball and beach volleyball as well,
with theOlympics and all of that.All of the different
levels. You might see different rules,
differences between the sport. Very good over all.>>In Iowa,
we’re starting to see more club teams for boys.Starting to see
some schoolstry to implement some boy teams.That is just good
for the sport.Some of the smaller collegeshave added men’s
teams. Mount mercy added a men’s team
this year.Another is adding a team this spring.It is becoming
a little morecommon. >>Serving into the net. Now a point for Valley.It is a
serve.Trailing by 5.Cedar Falls needs just five more points, and
they are the class 5A champion. Valley trying to do everything
in their power to stop that from happening.A point
goes for Cedar Falls.Here’s a look at Brown. She had 96 kills in the regular
season.>>Up against a single blocker, and she likes it. >>Her older sister unable to
win a state title here.She’s been a four-year starter in
Kentucky.Valley with the point. >>Valley is doing now what they
needed to do a couple of sets ago to keep belief in
themselves. And have a shot they’re almost
to the point where itis too little too late.Crazier things
have happened.>>Kubik the Allstate selection. Nebraska submit for Valley.First
matches, a good excuse, playing USA junior national team in Argentina.Steps
in, helps guide to the championship match.Block, point,
Cedar Falls.Three points away. They can feel it.>>Well, you
can tell how badly they want it. They’re chasing balls into the
benches.What — she’s up there, pushed over, nice height.What a
great block and a good time for it.>>Another
point for Cedar Falls.23-16. Cedar Falls won the first set
25-21.The second set, 25-19. And Cedar Falls now leads 23-16
in the third. That serve barely grazes thetop
of the net. Tigers ins is — in system.It is
match point for Cedar Falls.>> That was so smart.Valley was
still running around on the Court.Molly — Mahi could see
thatover the corner of her eye and dumped it in the middle.>>
Match point for Cedar Falls. Attack, air. And Cedar Falls wins this
school’s first-ever championship in the sport ofvolleyball.
They’re the class 5A champions! Defeating West Des Moines Valley
in three straight sets. The Tigers so good defensively
all year long.Their defense lead to offense throughout this
championship match. Cue the celebration not many
teams, not many coaches, notmany student athletes get a chance
to avenge and get a redo.Cedar Falls had the opportunity today
and they cashed in.Overall a dominant win.>>I
would say the same thing.At no point did I feel CedarFalls was
in trouble. West Des Moines Valley did anice
try to come back, but it wasn’t in the cards for them.>>Cedar
Falls has not lost a match since September. School records 43 wins, 49
consecutive matches won.And they returned every one from last
year’s team. They worked hard. — they worked
hard in the offseason and everything came together for the
Cedar Falls first title.You see the emotion and celebration by
Cedar Falls.>>Well, you can kind of seethe ticket punch. >>Let’s go to PA announcer for

that. The way they’re playing now,off
to a good start.>>Conlon playing strong at the net,

Carter.>>Nice timing there on the block.Again, more patient,
gettingtheir hands over the net, beautiful block on the outside
there by Carter. She can block and hit.>>Tranel
serve again.Foley from the back row, roll shot.And this one is
going to be deflected out. Wahlert will get the point,
starting to come back. At one point, down by eight have
trimmed it to five.>>This is a good rotation, the outside
attack of Carter, their number one player.It will not keep
going to her.>>Sneller again. And this one will be blockedout.
Side out for Sergeant Bluff-Luton.>>Good timing, but
again, got to be really strong withthe hands and turn that ball
back into the Court.>>Minten back to serve.>>Libero.If you
wonder the different color, those players are the
libero.They play free substitution and play defense on
the Court, there.>>Wahlert with a hard-earned point there withSherman.Played
big in the victory against Lewis.One of the few seniors on this roster, Gremmel will big
this one up.A 50/50 ball, it goes to Wahlert.>>A difficult
one to handlefor Sneller.I being she thought it wouldbe on the
other side of the net.A little bit of a tide turning.Wahlert is
inching back intothis.That will help.>>That is huge.An ace.
17-14. And Gremmel back to serve, again.She said yesterday, I’m a
senior, I got to win.>> Exactly.We have been down here
many times, you want to go out a winner as a senior.>>Tremmel
with fantastic play, straight to Wahlert.>>Carter with that,
this isback over.They go to back door.It pays off.How about this
pass here from Gremmel to the outside,
she’s able to find her teammate to put this one down.>>Smart
play, you can see the block didn’t get there, that is what
you have to do.The middle blocker didn’t back set.make the
adjustment to the The one-on-one attacker tookit down
for the kill.>>The two-point game, take it to the Warriors
huddle. >>They’re hitting balls.Not
digging well.Done be concerned about going back.We’re taller
and faster and stronger than them.You own this net.Understand
me?You own this net. Let’s go, right here.>>Good sound from Renee Winkel.
The head coach from Sergeant Bluff-Luton.She played
volleyball in Nebraska.She was coaching club team for a while.A
stay at home parent, decided I will get out and coach.Sergeant
Bluff-Luton job became available three yearsago.She took on that
position.She made changes.We’ll get into that a second.Sneller
up to Harms. Now Christiansen.>>The bump set as a libero.>>
Again, a terrific job as Tranel finds Carter.And watch this
50/50 ball atthe net. >>Carter’s huge jump, big hit,
block to get over that.That is unusual.Good technique blocking
team, the Warriors.Didn’t close that.>>Wahlert down by eight,
making it a one-point game, going for the tie.They get it.
Carter with the kill.>>Of course, Carter is difficult
swing to stop.I mean, she comes in with somuch power.Maybe more
power that Christensen and Harms are used to.They have to be
strong with the block. >>The third tie of the set.Just
getting things started and Harms said we will keep the lead
and the momentum.>>There she goes.Give confidence, little
early, little overanxious, enough hang time to get on top
of the ball and bring itin.>> Madison Harms leads the state in
blocks, has a number of division 1 offeredand really got
noticed throughout the season as sheblocks this one back. >>Again, Wahlert usually
fundamentally sound with block coverage.going over.They will
say, OK this is They have to cover the block.They know it
will come back with the forces that Warriors have at the net.
They need better block coverage. >>Instead of strong, tip, up,
over, Sherman has playedbig in the first set for Wahlert.>>
One of the top player.>> Wahlert rotates nine players
throughout the rotation.A lot of players have a chance to play.
Gremmel plays all the way around as their setter.Really
impressed with Tranel.She’s been doing great digging over here
for the Golden Eagles.>>This time, she’ll set it up.>>
Uh-oh.>>Could be a free — it is a free ball.Sneller goes back
to the side.Roll shot handled by Wahlert.And now a double hit
called against Wahlert.>> Unusual. I think she had my perception is
she probably changed her mind. If you change your mind mid set,
you mishandle.If you change your mind mid set, you will
probably have a MES miss.>>This is up to Foley.They get the
kill.>>Up early out of the back row, Sneller serving here for
Sergeant Bluff-Luton, what a story.The time-out taken by
Wahlert.Three years ago, she was themiddle.And that was one of
the first changes that Winkel made for Sergeant Bluff-Luton

willdo that to you in the close set.>>Sergeant Bluff-Luton
had an eight-point lead to see Wahlert come back and tie itup.
Down the stretch, they outscore them.A couple of service errors

other way with Sergeant Bluff-Luton playingFort first of

Minten. >>Both liberos showing their
mettle out there.>>And Carter gets it down.>>What gives her
an advantage is her jump.She five, 6 feet off the net, she’s

For Sergeant Bluff-Luton,the Warriors are having a tough time
getting their offense going.It centers around Sneller their
center.>>Having a hard time getting the ball passed up to
her.When she’s got the ball she’s too low or tried something
the hitter wasn’t ready for.See if they can get back in a good
system here.>>This one will get in.>>One of their favorite
attacks for Wahlert.I notice they did a lot of 32s.That is
the position opposite of the opponent setter.The shorter set.

set from her sister, Lexie Sneller there.>>
How do you get the momentum switch.>>When you are so far
behind, at least get some things going right to take momentum
into the third set.Serving and passing will do it for you.>>Carter, again, with okay hit.
>>Big back row.The block is up there, too far to at this time
right.Watch where the arm is, justto get in front of the

adjustments.>>Carter yesterday, very close to a double-double. 16 kills, nine digs, three aces.
>>Outstanding player.>>This dug up by Herrig.>>There she
goes again. She was a transfer, from Dubuque Hempstead.They talked
about melding with her.She’s in with the interval and huge tack for Wahlert.>>
Jenna Gremmel told us it took Wahlert a while to get used to
one another was finding the big hitter in Carter, replacing
McKenzie May, that was difficult to do because of how talented she was things working out for Wahlert as they take a 22-7
lead for Sergeant Bluff-Luton. >>Surprising turn of event in

Back door attack.Trying to jump in here, the jump and set, you have more over
the top of the net.Trying to bring it over.Just too much for
the back row attack.>>Gremmel to Carter.Little tip over. Gremmel will back it out.>>
Totally out of sync on the Warriors side of the net. >>Now at set point. Wahlert is grinding away after losing the first set and
their power is showing as Carter puts this one down.And how
about that? Carter here in this set, 11
kills.Carter, the sophomore, Wahlert has tied this up at a
set apiece.>>Beautiful, misdirection on the overpass
there.Wahlert’s tough serving which wasn’t there in the first
set was there for the second set.That made a huge difference.
Huge turn of events there, almost anillating in the second set. . >>25, 23 in the first sed for
Sergeant Bluff-Luton.>>Sandy, what was the difference in the
second set. >>Wahlert had amazing 520 kill
percentage.Took the block away from theWarriors.Huge turn of
events here.>>Look at the highlights.The first two sets,

set apiece.Sergeant Bluff-Luton will serve.Schmidt on the serve.

out of three.Carter had nine kills in thesecond set. Seven bigs by the libero Tranel.

rebounding.It is the outside attack.>>This one blasted by
Foleyfrom the back row.Sergeant Bluff-Luton with a big side out,
making it 2-1.>>Keep it even. They have 450, and weren’t
really able to recover in the second set.>>Foley will serve
it.>>Carter again.And this one just didn’t getin.>>3-1,
Wahlert.>>Unusual letting the ball drop out there. The libero for Minten, she is a
little better.You have to go for balls that are close.Especially
in the state championship. Nothing should drop without an
effort. >>And Christ an —
Christiansen, getting involved. First set key.Second set,
teammates find her. >>Yeah, strong swing for the
block.Funny personality.Talked to her approximate the team.When
the coach started saying something to them.They said say
no more.They heard anything in between games 2 and 3, say no
more, we need to get our game back. >>Tied at 3.A nice pass. go.>>Carter with the give and >>That is more like the
laberry, Minten. — libero. Minten.And again.>>Wahlert’s
offense has been moving quicker and getting away from the block.
They’ve got the lead.>>We talked about that in the
beginning of the match.The big thing is the Wahlert to avoid the block.See if they
can keep up the momentum here. A rotation in. Minten to Christensen.Carter
swings.They get this, and Minten was unable to get in front of the ball to get it up. Really to swing.Nice soft swing.>>Here
more.>>Great coverage on both sides of the Court.>>
Christensen.That one went long. >>Little inside.Not usually on
the outside where she can flank. Got to make the adjustment
inside the of the Court like that.Can’t swing as hard.Catch
that inside.>>Now to Harms. Here’s a player, you and I both
agree, Madison Harms atthe frontline.>>Hasn’t been that
much of a force, kind of been taken out of her game with the
click attacks.Number one in the state.She if they can get the
ballto her. >>That is why Harms is so good. See the offense.>>Two to three.>> Carter.>>She’s got an arm
swing.Great snap there. That time, Christensen a little
late to the game, getting arms up. Got to get over there quick. Nice view of theus — the U.S.
Cellular center.>>Coming up later on, 3A isnext.A full day
of activity here at the U.S. Cellular center.>>
Beautiful venue for volleyball. The nice new court. The fairway court.Farm Bureau a
big sponsor.Nice to see the girls being supported here.Trouble here.>>
Will find her teammate toget it over.Wahlert.Foley up to Harms.
>>Really good defensive transition this.Didn’t have a
lot of time toget off the net. But that time, Harms really got
enough, at least a little bit of arm swing and jump to put the
ball down there.A 6’2″ junior. One vision for the school right
now.Beautiful steps.>> Terrific.A three ball here for
Wahlert.Taking advantage.Sneller cannot get it down or get down to get it.That is a
nice attack on theWahlert side. Mixing it up.Nice quarterbacking
by Gremmel moving the ball around.Keeping the Warriors
defenseoff balance.>>9-5, Wahlert. Montgomery to serve.Now Foley.That is wide.>>
Little off the net, underneath it.Got to know where you are on
the Court.Keep the ball in play, if you can’t swing at it.>>
Wahlert has doubled up.Sergeant Bluff-Luton. five points.>>All
of a sudden, it is >>Harms has this one blocked
back.>>Good scramble by Wahlert,
staying on their toes as coach said.Just stay ready.>>Gremmel
with a good pass to Carter.But to take the pace out. >>It was pretty close. Deep, back row jump attack.Side
out, Sergeant Bluff-Luton.>> Looks like coach is giving
serving instructions.We’ll see where they’re going to serve to
here, probably trying to pick on somebody deep in the Court
there.Yeah, they’re trying to makeCarter work more there.
They’re serving to her. >>Ulrich — Uhlrich up, toSneller,
finds the other Sneller.Up to Foley.>>Beautiful inside cut shot.See
how she comes around, cuts that inside the block.Beautiful.>>
They are going after Carter.This one will be blocked out. Conlon, with the kill.Back to
the four-point advantage for Wahlert.>>Again, trying to make Carter work back there.Pretty
good pass.>>And this one going to be blocked down.And Sergeant
Bluff-Luton will get the point.>>Sophomore
Sneller.They have three players, six-foot or better on the
Warriors side of the net.>> Service specialist, Schmidt, the
junior will come in.>>Oh.>> Awesome serve. Now you see why she had fouraces
in the semifinals and among the top three on the team this
year.>>Beautiful.That is a tough ball to pass.In the
serving zone, where the server is coming in to set.
>>Sneller to the far side to Sneller.This is blocked.This
time Gremmel on the block.>> Nice transition there.Coverage
wasn’t there for the Warriors. Good timing on the block.>>Three-point game here. Madi McCarron back in to serve.
This one.Did it get in?No, it went long.>>Getting there.
Hitting errors will add up for Sergeant Bluff-Luton.Really get
a good pass, get the ball up where the height advantage will take over. >>>>To Wahlert. >>The Warriors.>>Much better
third set here for Sergeant Bluff-Luton.>>Some great transition there.
>>Sneller with the quick pass over.Bailout on the backside.
This one is going to be longby Carter. >>Good transition on both sides
of the Court coverage.Both teams tipping too much,I think. Carter tried to swing at it,
couldn’t get the ball down. Nice pass.>>Minten will put it across.
Gremmel here to Carter.That is in, just can’t get in.>>Gremmel
has a great punchon the ball. Love the way she sets the ball.
Nice, easy, soft.And deep in the Court.Just caught the corner. That was close.Just enough room.>>A
game of inches.>>Wahlert up again.>>Little hitting error.
Overrotation on that cut back shot.It looks like that might have been out.>>Court awareness
is huge, especially here at the U.S. Cellular center.You were
mentioning it is a different venue, being so wide open, it
takes time forteams to adjust. >>Especially if you have never
been here before.>>Right.>> Exactly.It is a wide open view. You have a wide open gym with
walls around you.Here there is no sense of perspective of the course. >>Let’s go to the Warriors huddle here. Delay on the block. Get us out there.I need a close
call.Wide open, I have two hitters in here.Then not.The one
— the zone 6 with the libero there or zone one.>>
Let’s go.>>What good instructions there.We talk about
the block is strong for Sergeant Bluff-Luton, but
they’re a little aggressive, SPAEBL with the big one like
Carter.Be patient, make sure they get the block at the top
when it is coming over. Transition, outside hitters are
not moving to get outside to take the outside hit.Just ball
placement.Hit the ball deep into the corner.Don’t need to kill
it, but do good ball placement on the attack.>>Carter, this one
back out.>>Good scramble, keeping the ball in place.>>
Carter again with the blast.And this will get time.>>Block
timing is not there.That time they were a littlelate.Before it
was too early.They have to time the jump just right because of
Carterhuge jump and big arm swing.Way to work on the timing
when the ball is coming overthe net, not at her jump.>>This
will get out of play.Largest lead there set for Wahlert.7
trained down to 6. >>The coach said, the back row
players have to talk to the hitters. Ale good players will adjust
midstream.And help with the decisions.>>With Carter, this is one of
the state championship games, over 22 kills.>>Yeah, very
impressive, for only a sophomore, very impressive.>>
Mentioned last year, played at Hempstead.Semifinals had 16
kills against Lewis central. Harms can’t get it over.>>Can’t
miss.The setter was thinking she would come in for a quick
attack.Didn’t get in there quick enough to keep the ball in
play.So Wahlert taking control here in this match.>>They
really have. The Warriors unnerved here.>>A
great angle there of the back court.>>Christensen back to flex out.
>>A little bit better transition.Not getting out, in
my opinion, far enough out to get a good approach.transition
there.A little bit better To actually get a better approach
and better swing on the ball.>>Huberty on the
serve.>>Too easy, nice, easy pass. >>That is what you get.>>A lot
of big go for Carter.>> Gremmel, she’s going to the hot
player, you know that is coming. When you serve easy, it is a
chance to set up the pass-set attack from Wahlert.>>Dubuque
Wahlert with no division 1 recruits just yet.>>A few
thinking about it, I guess.>> Grammel is actually thinking
about going on to play college volleyball.She will wait and
decide some time later this year.The time-outs are taken
hereby Sergeant Bluff-Luton.She said yesterday, she played a lot
of volleyball and wants time to think about approximate — about it.
She looks like a player thatis crafty on the Court.>>After
high school, you are sometimes ready to move on, do something
different.Let’s listen to what the huddle says here today.>>
[Indiscernible] both sides come off.With the whole side, if
anything comes up, you can run through, keep pushing. Let’s go.>>They’re pretty much
in control right now.Not much to say.Remind the blockers, if you
are not up blocking, cover the tip.>>Big day for Carter, the
sophomore with 24 kills.She’s been all the over the ball
today. >>A lot of shots in her
arsenal, lines, throw shot, hard cut shot.Right line, back
row attack.Talented hitter. A lot of shots in her arsenal.
Beautiful.>>She’ll serve, coming out of the time-out. Team up by 9 here 22-13.>>Tough.>>And ran out. >>Nice smart run by Sneller. Caught Wahlert asleep Beautiful pass. there.>>That is
hit long by Sherman.>>They tried run a quick hit.Beautiful
pass and set.Didn’t quite get on top of the ball there.Couple of
points for the Warriors to try and sneak back in here.>>This
one will be fisted over.Sneller to Harms.>>Beautiful.>>And
now a little bit of arun here. But it is still a six-point
game.>>She’s hard to stop on thetransition like that.Wahlert
didn’t get the block back up in time.>>And a lift is
called against the Warriors.>> Out of position, tried tobring
it over quick.Brought it over too far.Can’t say enough about
Tranel.As a libero, doing an awesome job passing, digging,
the key to get intothe offensive system. >>Not bad for battling an upper
respiratory virus all week. >>Playing through the pain.>>
And this will be blocked out.>> Close.>>Wahlert was lucky
there.The coverage didn’t stay deep.Here we are. Set point.>>Montgomery will serve.>>
Foley dives right to the net and guess what, Wahlert just
another set away from winning yet another state championship in volleyball.>>I
see that last play again here, I believe.Kind of a
scramble.A tough back row to attack when the ball is coming
fromthe backside.Again, kind of a hitting — mental error for a
sophomore.They were down 2-1 yesterday.We’ll see where it
goes fromhere.>>Wahlert will try to win astate championship,
SergeantBluff-Luton will try to extend it.We’ll see if they can
do it when we return. You are watching the Iowa State
girls volleyball championships here on Iowa Public Television.>>Here we are after three sets.
Wahlert has the second and third set.>>Sergeant Bluff-Luton is
in the same situation as yesterday. Down 2-1 against Xavier and came
back and won.We’ll see if they can get the game back.[Buzzer]>>the
major reason they’re back in is Carter with 25 kills. Here in this set.For Wahlert, Gremmel is
strong.Sergeant Bluff-Luton 45-25.Their offense has been in
motion.Wahlert tried to win the 18th state championship herewe
go into the fourth.The opening point to the Golden Eagles.>>
Looking at the stats fromset three. The Warriors had nine hitting
errors.You can’t have nine hitting errors. You have to have better hitting
hears. >>The Warriors tie it up here.>>They have to find their
groove.>>They have never even gotten this far.Their goal was
to get here and win it.Hopefully they can
get back in game four and push it to a five set.>>They find
Carter.Oh!Electric!>>That is a great angle to see how big she
jumps out ofthe gym. The jump is huge, way over the
top of the block.That is hard to stop.The block has to delay. Up too early.Tranel serves.
Sneller puts that one down for Sergeant Bluff-Luton.>>On the
other solid of the net, damage.>>Warriors have
their first led since winning the first set
25-23.It is short-lived as it is tied up again.>>It will head back. It was a nice smart move to cover the attack.>>Here she is with the
fastball.>>Yep.>> Christensen.Dug up. >>Gremmel doing — Tranel,
doing an amazing job, their laberry — libero. Foley.>>Now back to serve for BEBL BEBL, Huberty.>>Sherman.>>That is
effective for Wahlert.Great set there by Gremmel.And Sherman was
up there forthe attack.Nice quick attack and transition.>>
The service error.By the way, that is the first service error
since the first set for Dubuque
Wahlert.>>That is a change there.They have done a lot
better jobs in set 2 and 3.>>Different players.>>Sergeant Bluff-Luton see what they do here. It gets her three hitters inthe
back row.>>The kill.Big side out for Wahlert as they rotate
in with Morgan Montgomery.>> Couple of sloppy plays for the
Warriors not playingaggressive defense.They have to get up
there for Sneller. >>That hit saved and stays in.
Horchak, that one blocked out. The point goes to Wahlert totie
it up.>>Did a nice job with the big block out there.Trying to
hit through it, using the block. Hitting smart shots out there. Harms, five times, one lead
change.On that set.Sergeant Bluff-Luton trying to build momentum to force a
fifth set.>>Did a nice job on the right side for a kill.That is a
tight pass to handle.Tight step there.>>Foley gets that one
down!>>Another nice outside hitter there. Mix some things up.Just caught
the line there.Beautiful across court down the line shot.Ulrich short and
it is an ace.>>Uhlrich is a spark off the bench.Those are
hard to handle, the short setting. Play to the front, Sneller to
Foley. Carter has that one handled from
the back row.Free ball here for Wahlert.Gremmel to the front,
that is pounded down by Conlon.>>
Nice transition.That will work for them to get up there against
the block.Only one blocker can get up there. Just too late, not quick enough.>>Here in the next.>>And Horchak.That was
played well by Sergeant Bluff-Luton.>> 10-7 Warriors.>>I think it was
just really out.Game of inches. >>Schmidt will come back in. She’ll serve it now for the Warriors.Using power that time.
Generated off of the swing of Horchak.>>They’re really
mixing up the shots quite a bit. Making the Warriors block
ineffective.There is a blocking team this year, that if you use that block with the power.>>Horchak.>>Good
transition on both sides.>>Now to Carter. She swings.>>She’s calling a touch there. line official.>>Quick touch
called by theLooked like she just got a finger on it.Not
going to let it go.It was close. >>28 kills for Carter.And the
Warriors still hold the lead at 11-9.>>Christensen
up big there.She got all the way here. So let’s see where coach Winkel
has her serving here.>>Foley.At the top.Now to Carter. Swinging and scoring again.The
Carter.>>There is the rocket. When she’s up in good timing,
full swing, just really pounds the ball. A heavy ball, as they say.
Amazing she’s only a sophomore. We get to watch her for a couple
more years.>>This one going to be blocked out.Warriors have the
lead here at 12-10.>>Nice, smart play by Christensen.Use
the block.Almost got that turned in, not quite.Uh-oh she came
down light onthe ankle.She came down on her ankle, Carter did. See if that acts her here.>>
That gets down as they found Sherman again.On the slide.Watch
this.>>Little off balance, nice,deep shot blocked. Didn’t quite get there. Tight fourth set here.Haven’t taken

itright in a quote in thepaper today, there reallywas no plan
to be this kid. Her whole intent when shecame
into basketball as a high schooler was to tryand win
as many statetitles with this groupof girls as she could. And I think for her shehas
played with a littlebit of a chip on hershoulder because
there have been some people thathave
told her that she wasnever going to be a majorcollege basketball

wrong. (cheering) (cheering) ♪♪ Elle Ruffridge:It was around
kindergartenwhen I really startedfinding a passion for it
because I was surroundedby the 2005 team andthey made it to
state. Brandon Ruffridge: We hada group
of girls that justgot hot at the right time.Elle was a
kindergartner.She actually got to siton the bench with us.She
said from that daythat she wanted to experience that somedayand that
was somethingthat really drove her.Karla Ruffridge: Shewasn’t
going to let herheight ever be a factor in the game. You’ve always told herthere’s
always somebodyout there getting bettereach and every day and I
think that just stickswith her that there arebetter players
than Elle,but she doesn’t like that. Elle: This is myhome away from
home.When I’ve had a bad daythis is where I come andit’s my
happy place,definitely where I get to have my time. In the summer I spendhours and
hours justconstantly going throughmy shooting routines. She has workedtremendously on
hershooting.That’s her art. That’s her craft.Elle: After the
Nevadaloss I was frustrated in my shooting performance.The next
day I came intothe gym, I shot a thousand 3’s and I made 859.So I kind of
let my angerout and got my rhythm back.♪♪Robert Maske:You’re not
just buildingshooting, you’re building confidence.When we talk
about Elleand points, Elle’s pointshave gone up each year.Her
shot totals havereally stayed about thesame, she’s justmore
efficient.That freshman year shooting almost 50%, nowshe’s
shooting 59%from the field.Her freshman year 36% fromthree, her
senior year right now 53% and thegirl has

anytime.Tyce Ruffridge: Usually when I’m watching her every shot she takes I’mthinking

just like,shoot.Maske: One person nomatter how good, it
makes it really hard to get tostate,
let alone to winstate.We have that phenomenalathlete and then
we have afew more.Not just for Elle but forFaith and Grace all
three of them are in the recordbooks
for assists andsteals, Grace is withrebounds, Faith is with three-pointers.And so that
combinationhas put her obviously where she’s at with nowall-time
leading scorer and the all-time leadingassist
girl in Iowa girlsbasketball history, whichI’ve done some
research,there has never been girls that have had that
distinction at the sametime or even close. Elle: We’ve been on thisjourney
together for solong.Raising that championshiptrophy was
something we’vealways dreamed about.Losing that game really
taught us a lot of things and kind of brought uscloser
together as a team.They worked tirelesslybecause they wanted to taste the championshipand last
year, 27 and 0, knocking off Cherokee inone of
the greatest gamesin 5-on-5 history to getto the
championship, rematch against Nevada.
Pocahontas Area,they’re the 3A champs! And the rest is history.Elle: We
really cametogether and were like,alright, we’re not goingto

did. Elle: I’m reallyexcited for the
future.I plan to attend Missouri State University and continue my passionand love for
the game.It’s going to be a huge adjustment to us all.Yeah, there

The stage is set.Let’s look at the key. Your half of famer what is it I
go to take for Columbus to win a title here in class 3A.>>
Barbara: Both teams have somuch grit.For Columbus to win they
need todig it.They were in the semis yesterday, down 0-2 and
theycame back and defense won it forthem.They just need to stay
with itand play defense.Then they need to serveoffensively.
Sioux Center’s offense runs through their middle.So if
Columbus can serve and getthem out of system it’s harder to set the middle.>>Eric: Last
years two staterunner-up. What are their keys to the match
>>Barbara: They have grit as well.They were in the 0-2 and
cameback and won can they need touse their state experience.
They qualified for state in basketball and softball and use
that experience to help handle the nervous, the crowd, going
through tough times through the match.Then that I need to
continuetheir efficiency. They hit 343 in the semis and
it’s hard to lose with that kind of number.>>Eric: We handed out
a couple of trophies, the 5A champion.
Dubuque wallow rallies in 5 over segment bluff.After this, we
still have the 2Aand 1A finals so keep it tunedto Iowa public
television, your home for the 2017 High School volleyball Chip. day.Much on this special
veteransIt’s loud, ruckus and time forthe 3A final. This is VanMaanen, the senior.
She is the center for Sioux Center.On the left side is Sioux
Centeron the right is Waterloo Columbus.And Sioux Center is on
the boardfirst.>>Barbara: Expect a lot of walls to go to he Sinnott. The offense uses her a lot.>>Eric: 31 kills out of Sinnott She leads in kills and 4-4, and
we’re tied up. 1-1 in the first.He.>>As we
said in the open I loveit when they use the middle andI’m not
going to complain whenthe middles get involved.>>Olivia
feign had a good semi match as well, distributing 55
assists for Columbus.She is behind the service line, up and the attack, down the line
el.>>Sinnott has hit a ball crosscourt and down the line.So
the warriors really need tobe prepared for her to goanywhere.>>Nice pass back. They’re going to say it grabbed
the line.>>The trajectory looking atit’s when she hit it
it lookedlike it was going to go sailingout-of-bounds and it’s a
killfor Toering and usually she ismore hitting from the middle
butfrom the right side she can getit done.Columbus backed away
and let it go.>>Eric: Now a run for Sioux
Center, about outstanding player for Sioux Center, the offense
runs through her.She has 2 the 4 kills in theregular season,
the most of theseem team.It’s a point for WaterlooColumbus.If
this is any indication ofwhat we’re going to see in the 3A
final I like it.>>Barbara: This is one of thefinals the today
that has thepotential to go the distance. We just saw the Golden Eagles and the warriors — sergeant
bluff’s warriors go the distance and I think this match has that same potential.>>Eric: Shannon
with theservice 8, the 3’58” junior. 62 aces on the year. Leading the way for Columbus.On
the right side of your screenis Columbus.On the left is Sioux
Center. You can’t celebrate too soon.A
little radio maturecelebration.>>Barbara: We should talk about
how that works and how the officials take that into
consideration.So the R1, the official that ison the stand,
has final say.And so he looks to all of hiscounter p around the
Court tomake sure that somebody saw thatball hit the floor.And
if someone saw the ball hitthe floor, they indicate so andhe
has to wait and pay attentionto that.That’s why it was a little
bit of a late call, a late whistle.
>>Eric: It’s also a indication that you can’t celebrate because
you’re playing for the championship match and ballsthat
are normally down for a>>Barbara: Especially withpoint
might be returned today.these two teams.They’re both huge
defendingteams that know how to fight and know how to never say dive die.
>>Columbus leads by one.Blocked at the net. Sioux Center caught them off
off-guard.Good job at pushing it over thenet.Here is the replay.
>>Barbara: It looks like she is going to push the ball over the
outside and this is over the midst of the court where the
players can’t fire defense and no coach wants the team playing
can’t fire defense becausethat’s when you’re just sittingaround
and watching.>>Eric: Sioux Center has themomentum right now
leading 6-5 here in the first set as Shayla
Post is serve. She is so nonchalant.Didn’t even
jump.Nice consequence for Sioux Center.A tip and over the block.
And it takes a lot to get the ball to drop down for a point. Nice long rallies. To the outside over the block, Columbus near side, down for a
point for Sioux Center, 7-5, they lead it here in the first.
Let’s look a that replay.>> Barbara: What I like aboutthis
is that the warriors middle blocker, number 8, Alyssa Mulder
was late.She went anyway.That’s what we tell our middles,go no
matter what becausesometimes you will get a blockcoming in like
that and that’swhat happened.>> Eric: Do you feel themomentum?It
has shifted.>>Barbara: It has shifted.>>Eric: A 4-0 run here
for Sioux Center.Another strong
serve. Guadalupe Columbus gets the side
out.The down there for the point.>>Barbara: What happens,
itwent down for the point but hitthe antenna on its way down
andthat’s what the line judge reciping attention for.That red
and white antenna thatyou seize is lined up with theoutside of
the boundary line.What a great serve!But it’s lined up with the outside of the boundary line so
if it hits the antenna or goes over the net outside of the
antenna, it is out of bounds.>> Tremendous serving for Shayla
Post, a 7-0 run.Sioux Center doubling upGuadalupe Columbus
here.10-5, early going in the first set.>>And the run continues: Time
out.Guadalupe, Columbus, and the warriors elated with this bigrun
they’re on.Let’s listen in to the had youhadal and see what
the coaches have to say for Sioux Center. And and many Oldenkamp.>>Great
job, blue.Excellent start.Way to execute.Good John.I like the
defensive effortshere. Way to contest in it right away.
Up strong on the block. Very good Alyssa.Stop serving
ahead your zone.That’s huge azalea.Keep your communication
high.Couple of things.Don’t let He get an easy pointedwith the
center, something outof bounds. All right? Let’s go.Warriors, one, two,
three –>>Warriors!>>Coach Oldenkamp camp there wants to make sure that nothing
contact comes up and she likeses the way they are hitting the
zone.The Court is broken into sixareas and post is doing a
goodjob of looking at the bench andseeing what the coach wants
herto give and then hitting that,and that’s exactly what she
gaveher.Zone one is that right back corner.>>8-0 run plus a couple of service faces looking to get a side out any way they can.
Meanwhile Shayla Post, 32-8 in the regular season, hitting her
spot.>>Barbara: That’s a good call.
>>Eric: So a –>>Barbara: What happens, theball has to remain
in front ofyour body.If I take it behind your headand push it
forward it’sconsidered a throw and it’s an illegal contact or a lift.>>It will tip and here is
Guadalupe Columbus.Trying to get a point and theyfinal do but
not after a 13-6lead. And that is going to be a tough
hole they dug themselves to come back from.A the-0 run early on
in theopening set in the class 3Afinal put together by Sioux
Center and strong serving by Shayla Post. I think Shayla Post is my MVP so
far.She is serve being there and doing really good.>>Barbara:
She has done a greatjob leading the team.She’s a senior.What a
fun way to come out and start the state final match.>>
Eric: Guadalupe Columbus. They can put a run together.
Quickstep to the middle and hammering down to the kill. That’s aelection it is Toering.
>>Barbara: And I have been impressed with her all week.She
gets up quick and puts theWhat a beautiful play.ball down
quickly as you can seeShe is a usually up against asingle
blocker and has bothangles available to her.I. love
watching her get upthere and do that.>>Eric: Sioux Center on
theleft, Guadalupe Columbus on theright. We played a 25 win by 2.Columbus
with the point.And going back to serve as we look at the replay, Sydney –>>
This is what Coach Oldenkampcamp was talk about in thetimeout.
Watch out of that timeout butshe still got a point off of it.>>Back set, a block at the net
by Columbus.Avery Kroll gets the stuff.She is a sophomore.And
hard to explain there –Barbara explain what happenedfor the
call.>>Barbara: It was a double contact.When the setter set the
ball,your hands have to contact theball at the same time.And
that kind of — the official thought that is not whathappened
so he called a double contact.>>That’s the near sideline.
One-handed up and then an attack there by Columbus.Not expecting
it to come back.>>Not expecting it to come backI like the
thought process ofhitting a back like that, but probably needed to not hit it so shot to the middle of the court
hard and put it to the corner or but I to like that idea.>>Placement over power. Sailing out of bounds.VanMaanen,
the senior, here andit goes out-of-bounds and chipping away at Waterloo
Columbus.>>Waterloo Columbus looks likethey’re beaten.>>They
need to do something tocreate a run to get back becauseit looks
like they’re having arough go of it.>>That set was really tight to
the net.The sailors get the point and they pull within 6 here asnumber
6 to serve. This is Anna or tease, a senior
defensive specialist, 13 aces on the year. Block, point, Sailors.>>
Barbara: Great job byColumbus to get two blockers onthat.Toering
hasn’t had a doubleblock for a lot of thetournament this week
so they gota double block on it and got thepoint. Good job by the sailers.>>Eric:
Great job by thecoaching staff. Head coach Hanna Nuss.84 wins,
only 36 losses.There’s the side out.Sioux Center, you can see
thereplay.>>Barbara: What a great cornerfor VanMaanen.It’s
so hard to defend that.>>Eric: Denied.Tip to the back.Hustling
and the sailors withanother point.5 points difference here
in theopening set in the class 3A championship final.Last year
Waterloo Columbus, thestate runner-up in class 2A. They bumped up to 3A this year.
Zeus center, it’s their 7th trip for the state championship tournament, second in a row are.
Actualed out-of-bounds, we have ourselves a 4 my haven’t gameand
I was like.momentum ischanging.>>I love that that momentum
pendulum swings back and forth. Yes, I do your’ never out of it.
You have to keep fighting andall of these players done it at
various levels in clubs or high school, wherever they played,
they all had come backs to know this is possible.>>Nice scrappy
play defensivelyon this rally and it’s anotherpoint for the
sailors.Look out.Look out. Timeout cold called by Sioux
Center as they watch their lead — no, they’re going tokeep it
here. I thought I saw a couple of
players led over to the bench. The lead is evaporating as we head to the home in the opening
set. Kicked out of bounds.And there’s
the timeout.Two-point ballgame here in theopening set. Sioux Center civil with the lead , Guadalupe Columbus withthe mow
momentum item.Let’s listen to the huddle.>>Hey, that’s your
commitmentto defense right there.You guys keep controlling
thepace and you run this game. Let’s go, right here. Get it done!>>Keep it up.Keep that defense
up.>>So Coach Nuss is talkingabout
they can make this comeback happen with their defense.She is
right.They all say defense wins volleyball as well.championships
and that’s true in>>So this run we’re seeingColumbus on you
would givecredit to defense or what otherfactors are going in
to gettingback into this?>> Barbara: I think theirdefense
and they — they lookfor committed to playing theball.
It’s the attitude.It’s the effort, you know, it’sgoing
after everything.And that side make a huge — andit does make a
difference. Sometimes tough defense leads to that .>>Four kills this season.>>
Barbara: Center lineviolation.>> Eric: Center line again,Sioux
Center and the runcontinues.>>>> Barbara: We have a run of 5
right now.>>Eric: Give credit to good serving by number one Olivia Fain, trying to build on the 5-0 Waterloo Columbus run.>>A little miscommunication on the sailors and there’s the side
out.Sioux Center needs it.Let’s see if they can put a run
together as we’re closing out this first set.Nice pass. Good said and there’s the kill.
Anacin not with six now.>>We talked about the warsgoing and
getting it.You can see that time the middledidn’t get out there
so Sinnottis up against the center blockand a player like
Sinnott isgoing to put the backing ballaway every single
time against ablocker.>>Eric: The block was there andthe kill
was perfecters andShayla Post with the kill.>>Barbara: The
blockers were ingood position and pushing overthe net but just
off the net sothey didn’t have the net fieldso they were in the
rightposition, just not close enough to the net so it stayed on the
Columbus sailors side.>>>>The 8 and the were similar.Those
orange numbers arepositiving out. And it’s a 1 pointed game. Meanwhile seven kills now for Sinnott. Opportunity in the net and it’sa
point for Columbus.We are tied at 19-19. unfortunate for VanMaanen>>
Barbara: And that wasbecause she didn’t have a choiceShe
couldn’t send the ball overand she had to try to save it and it was just too tight.>>
Eric: Deep serve.A roll shot. Here is Waterloo Columbus, set
ting and town for the killand the sailors have stormed all the way back and have thelead
20-19.>>Barbara: Now looking at thebody language and the effort
onthe warriors side it’s completely different.Like they
aren’t going for theball that they were going for inthat makes
all the difference inthe first part of the set andthe world.
Energy is contagious and effort is contagious.If you go crazy
all over thefloor you teammates will too.>>Eric: Running out of
room.In the Rupp for Waterloo Columbus, leading by 2, a 4-0run
right now, building on the earlier run they had to get into
this thing.They’re just four points away from taking the first set.Nice
block, push to the backcorner and it’s in.Oh, my –>>Barbara:
That’s a greatcorner.Sinnott could have played thatbut
thought it was going out.She thought it was too deep.>>Eric:
Everyone is creeping upa little bit and a grab just inside of that end zone.Sailers
of Waterloo Columbus onthe right side of your secrete. On the left is Sioux Center. And Waterloo Columbus with the
point.Sub steungs here.>> Barbara: When they were down13-5
you never thought they would be ahead 22-20, did you?
The momentum swing in this is so much fun to watch.>>The tide has turned here in
the class 3A championship match. This is just the first set. A long way from over.>>Barbara:
Especially withthese two teams who know how totake it to 5 and
have the grittoo take it to 5.>> Eric: 23-20. Timeout on the Court. If 7 kills for Anacin not lead
ing way.Let’s see what coach has to say.>>We have to turn into better
offense.Hitters get back in transition.Make sure you’re
getting back onthose, okay.It’s hard, I know when it’squick off
the take.If you can get out here and get to the pen you have options.
Okay?Guys we set it super strong andit’s in this rotation.It’s
right here where we were.You can do this, you can do thisLet’s
go.Get the first set. Words, one, two, three –>>
Barbara: She said if the ball comes out to the pen or the
antenna, you have options so she wants her hitters to know that
the set needs to come out to the antenna and get far enough out
there and the hitter can do whatever she wants.And she said
on the jump ballsthey need better offense so anyof the
stuff that comes over thenet, like your Sunday churchleague,
you have to turn it into some kind of positive offense You can’t just be junkballing it
back.>>Eric: Another thing she saidin this rotation when they
wenton their run, when you have to the after every single timeout and this has been a very
beneficial rotation for Sioux Center. But a costly error.Trying to
serve aggressive butit goes long and brings upsetpoint in favor
of WaterlooColumbus.Here is a look at Sydney should this.Set point sailers.And it’s
in. Now, it sails out of bounds.
Grabbed the back service line and it goes deal and victory for
Columbus. Here is that final point. The game — it’s a game ofinches
a game of momentum andright now Waterloo Columbus hasthe lead
in this game.A long way from over. Back to the 3A final, pit two right after this from Iowapublic
television.>>7 kills by Anna Sinnott, lead
ing way for WaterlooColumbus as they defeat SiouxCenter in the
opening set.Eric Eric and Barbara Randallhere.It’s not how
your start but howhow you finish.>>Barbara: That’s right.
That’s what happens when you turn a 25 deficit into a 25-21
win.>>Eric: Neither team hit theball very well. Both teams end hitting under 100
percent for a percentage.>> Barbara: Neither one is doing well in the efficiency category. Columbus leads Sioux Center in
digs by 6.Other than that, they need hadto calm down and get the
flow ofthe game, feel the ball, get arhythm and go from there.>>Anacin not, 7 kills, 4 attack
errors. She has 5 digs.Olivia Fain of
Columbus, two 333.kills on six attempts
hittingBut overall Columbus, 13 kills, not attack errors on 43 attempts
hitting .0 the 3.It’s taken Sioux Center only the kills, four for VanMaanen,
two for Toering and one apiece for Cleveringa.Overall, the
kills and 7 attack errors hitting .049. But you move forward to the
second set while the momentum in favor of woo Waterloo Columbus,
you would think Sioux Center has to be feeling confident because
they know they can play withthis Columbus team as the numberone
ranked team overall.>>Barbara: Not only that but
their modus operon day die for this week has been come back.So
they have no qualms about having this match go forward..
And they don’t have any issues with it.>>Sue sister’s senters, Jordin
VanMaanen, said she would be the grade that does big things.
They’re playing for a state championship no volleyball. Their arunneringers up in
basketball last year and qualif ier in softball.I would say
they’re doingbusiness big thirngz.>>Barbara: Pretty
amazing andcool as young kids they had those goals set for them or set
those goals.>>Eric: As fifth graders.A point for Waterloo
Columbus, 3-1 here in the early going.The Sailors third straight
tripto state.35 wins, 8 losses on the year.In the semi finals
they rallied from match point and gained
three.If carol Kemp got that pointthey would be playing and
notColumbus.>>Barbara: It was exactly likeyou said.Sometimes
in matches you cantell who is going to win.In that match you
just neverknew who was going to pull itout in the end.>>Eric:
Columbus ranked numberthree as they celebrate and goup 4-2.
Carol Kemper was ranked number between O look at the set score
s yesterday in the semis. Kemp E. Kemper worn the first
2516.They won the second 2521 and had a chance to win, getting sweeped , Columbus and lost 29-27 and Columbus won the forth set That’s determination.and the
fifth set 15-11. That’s will.>>Barbara: Yeah, it
doesn’t getcloser than when the other teamhas match points.>>
On the other side the Court, Sioux Center was down 0-2, the 6
th range stage at thewarriors get the point here totie things
up at 4-4.Sioux Center dropped the firstset 25-16 in the semi
finals, dropped the second 25-21, one of the third 25-21, won the fourth
25-10 and won the fifth andfinal set 15-8.A veteran crew, 8
seniors on the roster for Sioux Center.If.>>
Barbara: If those 8 seniorswere setting those goals in thefifth
grade that’s cool they allhold each other accountable forthat.
>>Eric: A lot goes into it.Not just how you play today butthe
culmination of a lot of hard work, conditioning, chemistry,
and it transfers over from the softball diamond to the
basketball court and the volleyball court.>>Yep.>>So as
a Hall of Famer andformer division one coach, you saw a benefit in your own
volleyball for playing multiple sport.>>You bet.And for a lot
of differentreasons.I think other sports can helpyou see
things that maybe beinga single sport athlete do younot.I think
basketball helped me see peripherally which as a middle
blocker you need that and Ithink the other sports helped aswell.
But I also like for a variety of reasons, when you recruit multi
sport athletes you have less ofa chance of a burnout.So a lot of
single sportathletes have been playing theirsports since they
were littlekids, year around.By the time they get to college
which is their goal as a college scholarship by the time they get
to college they’re done.But with a multi sport athletethey’re
just starting so I liked it pour that reason also.>>
Eric: Good shot there, the head coach, Julie ole camp, 11
years coaching and 10 of the 11 have been at Sioux Center.269
victories, own 105 losses,and it’s the fifth statetournament
appears for her at Sioux Center.>>Reporter: Great
job by ourIowa Public Television crew, allday long vertebraing
you the saythat and sounds from thischampionship Friday.>>Nice job on the block by the
warriors getting their arms up early and over.You see.>>
Waterloo Columbus in thewhite, Sioux Center in the blueand
orange.Ball out of bounds and theSailors go up 8-7.>>Barbara:
That time theblocker’s arms were not pushedabove the net.
They were above her head which causes the trajectory of theball
hitting it to go sky high out the back end of the court.>>The samers get another point
scoring the point and knockingit out of bounds.It’s the-7.>>
Remember the WaterlooColumbus won the first set 25-21We talked
about the goals, the dreams of getting to the state
tournament.Period Cedar Rapids has been thehost city since
1992.Two years from the U.S. CELLULARCENTER due to the flood
renovation in 2011 and 2012 where we were doing those
broadcasts over.>>Barbara: At the ice Iran.>>Eric: What a
wonderful city.They roll it 0 the red carpetand treat this
championship andjust Kateer to the fans and theplayers and
media and everyone.>>Barbara: It’s a big deal forthis city to
have this and hostit.It brings a lot of economic goodness to the
city as a wholeand people understand that.They know during
these four days, hey, don’t drive downtown.Find another
route because thedowntown is going to beinundated with school
busses andfans and people who don’t knowwhere they’re going
and so find another route to work .>>Eric: Cedar Rapids, 131,000 for the population, 226,000 in the city, and especially a the
7:00 time, 2A and 1A this is a big city it’s a big deal playing
on this court. Waterloo Columbus with a 2-1
lead.Here is the attack.That’s Alexis Toering one of thetop
players in the state.Over 300 kills and let’s see theview from
our net cam.>>Barbara: I like that play.The only thing I would
saydifferently is set the ball another foot off the net.Wept
the ball to be 3 or 4 feetoff the net so there are angles
around the blocker and thehitter hazardous room to swing through without contacting the net.>>You can see that bowel was
tighter and she had had to do a risky snap on that swing.If she
would have swung throughwith her arm she would have hitthe net
so you use your wristand snap it down then hopefullyyou don’t
hit the net.>>Eric: The wrist snap on thatattempt.And Sinnott
helps the Sailorsget to a dozen, so senate number nine has nine kills already.
Yesterday she had 31 in the five -set victory.That’s for the
kill.It’s hard defensively to get upand stop that when it’s
sump aquick hand-off.>>And I’m not with trying toshow any
favoritism but I’m afavorite when the middle gets uplike that
and list like that.She is up nice and early, gets anice ball
to hit and pops itdown to the floor.It’s pretty when it works
likethat. Barbara Randall recently>>Eric:
Our broadcast partnerinducted in the hall of fame, aformer All
American middle andshe coached the middle at Purdueand UNI.>>
Barbara: I’m a little bit buyI can’t said.>>Eric: You love the
position.13-12.We’re at the halfway point ofthe second set.
Not a must-win by any means for Sioux Center, but it would be nice if they don’t go down 0-2.
>>Just make it a little easier.>>I’m sure the coaches and fans
would love it if they didn’thave to have another 0-2 come
backing.>>Eric: Meanwhile WaterlooColumbus says it would
be good to head in the third set up 2-0. A good strong serve.And I heard
a whistle. Net violation. And in a timeout on the Court a
run by Waterloo Columbus to take a three-point advantage. Let’s go into their huddle.>>
All the way back, all the way back. .>>Keep talking. Soaked line defense be ready.Be
ready for the roll and tips.Get the job done.Let’s go come on.>>
One, two, three — aggressive, aggressive,aggressive.>>She’s
talked birthday aboutsecond line defense.That’s the back row
defense.She wants — she talked aboutget a lot of touches off
theblock.You heard the assistant say thatWork for touches, get a
touchoff the block and let the secondline defense, the back row
defenders play the ball up. Additionalry, she talked again about not letting a tip or
anything on the second character the from the war yergs come over and just fall flat on the floor.
>>Eric: We’re at a critical juncture. Waterloo Columbus leading by
three ask a chance to build on it behind the service line here. A miscomeurchtion on theWaterloo
side of the net.They have been playing togetherfor a while.
Maybe jitters on the big and the fact brightest of stages withthe
championship on the line.>> Barbara: Maybe a little bit
jittery but that should be out of their system by now.>>Eric:
Four-point lead.Make it 5. What a big swing above the net.
>>Barbara: Eric, I don’t knowif you are this — furthermore this but this started from when
reed Peyton, she was a lefty and she was serving bullets and got
tation after ace and like 7 aces in a row.>>It was a
incredibleperformance.>> Unbelievable performance.And
Brie Peyton who played at UN their hall of fame.I was
recentlyly inducted in>>Eric: A 5-0 run for Waterloo Columbus, out of bounds and off
the block.Mark decision.Throwing right of a the block,off the
hand and now a double digit kill for Anna Sinnott the
senior.>>Barbara: She showed she canget it done from the left
side and from the right side.>>Let’s see what Sioux Center
can do with it.Ball handling error and it’s nowa 6-point lead
as we close outthe second settle. Trying to will her team and send
some positive energy as jewelole camp, the head coach atSioux
Center. Doing what she can do as a coach
>>Barbara: That’s what makes coaching so hard.>>Eric: A
little tip. Side out.There they go.>>
Barbara: Way to battlethrough that a nice little tipover the
block.Sometimes you have to change thespeed a little bit
just to get the defense off their heels.>>
Eric: We talked at ole camp.She led Bishop to the state crown in 2006. Waterloo Columbus, the replay here .>>Barbara: Sioux Center plays
rotational defense which putsthe players in the corners sofor
them the open position isthe middle back part of thecourt and
that was exactly where the last ball hit.>>Eric: Sioux
Center 34-5 over all and the top-ranked team
they’re in class 3A. They drop the first set 25-21 and inching closer.And Columbus
does not want to let Columbus Ba being in this
set.They don’t want to start withany kind of momentum.>>An anus, the head coach for
Columbus. There they go getting back on
track.Last year the runner-up in class2A, bumping up a class to
3A,that’s not an easy transition.It’s more student
athletes, morebigger school.The competition potentiallycould be
more challenging,depends on the year by year. And that is the fifth kill for
Schultz.Pretty good balance actually for the warriors.And service there,
that doesn’thelp their cause and furvetion is headed to the bench is Mulder 22-17, play to 25, win by 2.Into
the net.Service error here.>> Barbara: If I’m anyone oneither
team, I shouldn’t befrustrated. They both know at the state
tournament you can come back from 0-2. So you just have have
to put on — pull up your bootstraps and get back to work.>>Eric: Nice pass, set to the outside, off the block. Tip to the back row.Nice
placement.23-18, Waterloo Columbus withthe lead.Here is
the replay. Not power, placement.>>Barbara:
And Sioux Center hasbeaten then with that play several times today, so it’s pay
back.>>Eric: A taste of their ownmedicine. Let’s listen to the huddle.Yes,
ma’am.>>Blockers continue to work hard to get pulls and even if
you’re outside of the block and she is over or we’re late you
have to try to pursue the ball. Too much watching the ball hit
the floor.As we talked about, remember?Remember?You got to
pursue the ball.Okay.You guys, battle, battle, battle, even if
we do not winthis set, remember we needmomentum, we need
momentum, comeon, positivity, warriors, one,two, three –>>
Warriors!>>Barbara: Sometimes thehardest piece to get through
isthe mental peels.If you start believing you havethis lost then
you have it lost.She said the blocks needs to getclose and
that so so true.Their middle blocksers aregetting out there
and theshoulders are facing off theCourt which means that
there’sno way, even if the ball hitstheir hand, the ball is
going togo flying off into the crowd.>>So they’re in the right
spot,just more of the positioning.>>They’re not
necessarilymaking it close but they’re –they’re getting close
and theirshoulders and hips are not –they need to be parallel
to thenet and they’re off the net facing the out of bounds
whichthat way.means the ball is going to go>>Even if Sioux
Center doesn’tcom back and win this thecoach wants them to get
Mose menitem going.>>Which she is right.You need to turn it
around hereso that you can keep thatpendulum of momentum
swinging your way.>>Eric: Sinnott makes it 24-19.
How do you stop this?Coming right at you.>>One way is get a
double blockjust like what the coach was saying.>>Eric: Service error,
making the score 24-206789 Sioux Center, all the way from
western Iowa, the northwest corner, the border, taking on
Waterloo Columbus High School Roman Catholic from the cedar
falls Waterloo area.Winner take all here in thisclass 3A final.
Step forward for Columbus and they got it.Two sets to none!
Lead here in the 3A final. And that’s a dozen kills for for
Sinnott.Anna Sinnott having herself a day today, the senior.>>Barbara: Nice angle.>>Eric:
Down but not out, SiouxCenter there in the sameposition yet.
What did they do?They came back and won it.The Waterloo Columbus
is goingto it make it tough for them.We will see who wins set
threeright after these messages.>>Eric: Today we’re telling the story of the girls in cedar
rapidses.Welcome back.Eric Eric and Barbara Randall. Are you having fun.>>Barbara: I
love this.I don’t think there’s had abetter day all year.>>
Eric: Let’s looking at the highlights and right now there’s
been a lot highlights for both teams but it’s been Waterloo
Columbus that has more of a 26 kills for Waterloo Columbus,only
23 for Sioux Center. Hitting 1 the 7 is Waterloo
Columbus and what are maybe some of the other differences that
you’re seeing between a win anda lot in both the first andsecond
set?>>I think Coach Oldenkamp camp
said it.It’s pursue.The warriors have kind of quitpursuing the
ball and they needto get back in it.That’s what gave them the
13-5lead in the first set.But here is the interesting part
about this matchup.Columbus is up 2-0.Normally, you kind of
think oh, we got this match in the bag.
However, everybody who hasplayed the warriors this weekhas been
in this position.And the warriors are here inthis match.
So there’s no taking it easy. There’s no relaxing.They all
know that the warriorshave come back every match theyhave played
here.>>They’re warriors.>> They are warriors. Take a look at individual
statistics.Anna Sinnott.Kroll hitting 200 for SiouxCenter.
Mulder 6 kills. And 5 kills for VanMaanen,
Toering and it’s a really good balance with four players with 5 or more kills for Sioux Center.>>And you need that balance
that’s key to keeping thedefense guessing.On the other side
thenette youhave Sinnott getting most of thenet and so Sioux
Center knows where the ball is going Sinnott 23 of 70.He is still efficient.
Both teams hitting much better in the second set at Sioux Center hit 321 efficiency and
Waterloo Columbus Catholic 357.I hope you’re enjoying today’s
broadcast.Bash with and I have been alldays a the volleyball
sailsalmost into our lap here as we’re court side here in cedar
rapids U.S. CELLULAR CENTER.The 5A champions go to thetigers
over valley, three setsto none. Did he meuk waller 1 in 5 over
sergeant warriors and right now we’re at the 3A Chip.We still
have the 2A and 1A to go. Sailors have it.They’re on the
right side ofyour TV screen. It goes long and we’re tied at 3
-3. Bash, you have been here since
Tuesday and they split the Court from yesterday, the U.S.CELLULAR
CENTER looks differentfor all of the days except fortoday.>>
Barbara: That’s right.And I’m so glass you’re — gladyou’re
bringing that up.Way the Court is now, everyother day, the
Court is turnedand there are two courts, one oneach half of what
you’re seethere now and there’s a netthrough the middle to keep
theball from distracting each other, and one half of the
bracket plays on one court and one half plays on the other
court.It’s a pretty phenomenal way torun this tournament.>>I have no idea how theplayers
can hear each other andfocus when there’s another matchgoing
just feet away from themand with everything riding on it in the semi finals.>>Barbara: I
think the key isthe speakers face out word andthey put the up
rest with theback to each other so theirwhistles blow to the
outer partof the court and the speakersthe same way so
everything theP.A. announcer says goes outtowards the outer
part of thecourt.>>Wonderful venue you. Here is a look at the warriors.
And a do or die must win situation, trying to force a
fourth game, a fourth set.And right now, they are leading 5-4 after the fourth kill coming
from Cleveringa, the senior.And looking at the veteran groupfor
Sioux Center, they just have8 seniors on the roster. That is a wealth of experience
but they still have sophomores the team.and juniors integral
members of>>Barbara: And it’s importantto get some of the
youngerplayers this experience so one,they dream about coming
back towant to work hard for it. Two, when they get back here, they aren’t just irpz scared as all get it and I guess I will
just leave it at between O.>> Eric: Point to the warriors.The
head Coach Oldenkamp camp said yesterday after their come-
from-behind win, theplayers played with noinhibitions and
when they playlike that it’s really tough tostop them and
Coach Oldenkampcamp said I’m just so thankful Iget to coach
them one more thymetoday here in the championship>>Barbara: And
they need tofinal.find that again.They need to find that
right here and ask potentially they’re
on their way to starting to run with that.They scored two in a
row.>>Eric: The serve.Got through the block, tooledout of
bounds, point WaterlooColumbus, some powerful attackfrom Kroll.
>>Barbara: The reason that happened is what we were talking
about before.Because the middle blockers aregoing out, their
shoulders andhips are faced off the Court andthen she has to
bring her armback on and she’s swinging atthe ball, she has too
much timewhen her arms are straight upand down.She needs to
just push her hands over the net.>>Eric: 8-6, the warriors on a
run also after they semi final victory by Sioux Centeryesterday
one the leaders,Toering, we talked about what weneed had to
do as a team whenwe’re down 0-2. We have to start communicating
better and minimizing our mistakes.That’s exactly what
theyimmediate to do right now.>> You can see how the shoulders
and arms are faced offer the Court on that — that was a great shot of that. Ep so I’m pretty critical themid
ems and of blocking and so that’s — I apologize if anyone
has taken offense but those are the techniques you need to use.
You need to keep your shoulders parallel to the net.>>You’re a
catch coach, you’reanalyzing and critiquing.Nice pass. Back set. Set to the outside ep kept alive
Good rally between Waterloo Columbus, the third rank Sailors
and the top-ranked Sioux Center warriors.I feel a momentum shift
happening about right now.>>Barbara: And we heard — we
heard Coach Oldenkamp camp inone of the earlier, the firstset
timeout talk about theoptions they have in the blockand we
just saw it right there.There are options there for thepin
hitters to go through the blockers.>>Eric: 16 kills now nor senate
She had 30 kills in the quarter finals’, barb, 31 in the semi
finals, and 32 today.>>Barbara: Absolutely.If it goes 5, she
absolutelycould.If it goes three, probably not.>>Eric:
What do you like abouther as a player.>>Barbara: I like she is
allover the Court.We just saw her defending andgetting back
outside totransition to swing. And she seems pretty aggressive.
And as a coach you always like aggressive.>>Eric: That
aggressivenesspays off again if you have akill total going on.
That’s number 17.She is leading all players. Here is the replay.>>Barbara:
See how the blockers’ arms are off the net?That’s opening court
for Sinnottto hit wherever she wants.>>Eric: 10- the, Sioux

to do.What else can someone do toprove to get better so when
theyare a sophomore or junior or senior in high school they are
ready to step on the stage and help their school win a state
title.>>The most important part isball control so you can
practicethat even when you don’t have –>>Barbara: Ball control
is>>Eric: What a ball control. making the ball go where you
wantet?Of just play off your arms.>>Eric: Makes sense.>>
Barbara: It does.You think do that without had anet or court.
You can pass to yourself, set to yourself, pit the ball against
the wall, sit on the floor and pass to yourself, just different
things to practice putting the ball where where you want 0 it’s
and there are a lot of thingsyou can do by your sever on acourt
too.>>Eric: Severing I would think.>>Barbara: Absolutely.
Serve is huge.volleyball that you haveIt’s the only skill in complete control over.>>Right

Center.We’re in the third set. Columbus leads two sets to none after taking the first 25-21 and
the second 25-20. That is the 11th kill cominghe
for Avery Kroll. So it’s an Avery Kroll with 11
and Sinnott with 19 leading the charge for the Sailors. Center dump blocked momentarily.
Tip to the back row. Near side attack. Good up defensively the warriors That was a fun volley back
between the two squads. Go to the net camera.You can
see, their arms areswinging at the block.They need to go up
straight andpush over and hold their armsthere as long as they
possibly can.>>Reporter: Back step slide,

Sailors from WaterlooColumbus enjoying that.We got a wrestler

these warriors our Sioux Center. lineup.Great balance up and down
theMulder with 7 kills. And leading the way, Toeringwith
eight.We kind of expected this to happen this game.>>The warriors
have not been able to get Torying in themiddle
because of the ballcontrol and that kind of thingsand that’s
her strength.They need to control the ball and get it so that she can hit
those out of the middle because she is powerful.>>Waterloo
Columbus celebratingthat point, barb. Columbus, they’re in the same
conference as the next 2A title game, the NICL conference.Put
that conference up againstany conference in the state ofIowa,
with two of the five champions today.It’s one thing
to win aconference championship, but itmeans a little something
extrain the NICL, especially thisseason.>>Barbara: That’s
exactly right>>Eric: Great effort.They say it went under.It
would be interrogatory to look at the review on that.
Regardless, the warriors didn’t give up this year. So it’s down.>>Barbara: I think
it went across the net outside of the
antenna.The line judge was waving hisflag.>>Eric: Timeout
on the Court.Columbus bus has the momentum. Let’s hear what the coach has to
say.>>Coach: Listen, you got to go
now.You got ’em right where you want’em but it had as to take
focus, okay?Aggressive.That’s what got you hear.I need
everybody covering.We’re sending a lot of balls outEverybody in.
Cover.And back out. All right?Pick up and let’s go. Let’s go.>>Barbara: She knows the
warriors have come back from 02 every match and wants to make
sure she comes back and part of that is covering.That means you
have to be downlow and ready for the block toblock the ball back
on to your side of the net.>>Eric: Last
years WaterlooColumbus 2A state runners-up.Talking to Coach Nuss
and shesaid losing in the state finalslast year definitely hurt
thesegirls and the returners are on amission this year. They talked about consistency a
lot.You have to maintain, out last,you have to continue to
push.She says we all love each othermensely. Nobody wants the season to end.
Well it’s going to come to anend today and either Waterloo
Columbus is going to be a a state champ or, for the second
straight year runner-up.Right now they’re in the>>Barbara:
Either one of thesedriver’s seat. would be a second straight year

out of bounds.>>Barbara: No touch.>>Eric: A four-point lead

but starting to pull away are the Sailors.And it
results in a hittingerror.>>Barbara: A pass is the nameSo
important to get a good pass.of the game.And you can see what’s
happening when you run your middle offense
and you can’t get your pass off your center.And that’s what
happens when youcan get you pass to the center.>>Eric: Goat out
of the way.That’s Alexis Toering. 6 foot senior, middle hitter.
Over 300 kills.She’s been efficient on theseason hitting
over 430.Another kill. That’s exactly what Sioux Center needs: And van Manningen the serve. And VanMaanen gets jump serve, and Columbus off the block.And
over the block by SiouxCenter. Center dump.Not catching anyone
off-guard on that play.>>Have to hit it over
and theydo.21-17 Columbus. Not the hardest hit but it –>>
Barbara: That’s the thing.It doesn’t always have to be a
hammer. It just needs to hit the floor.>>Eric: Play to 25, win by 2.
Columbus won the first 25-21,won the second 25-20. Trying to join cedar falls in Dubuque waller as champions here
today.>>Barbara: Another that is aover the middle of the back
ofthe court. Great spot by Sinnott.>>Eric: Sinnott, 22 kills.Let’s
hear what Julie ole camphas to say for Sioux Center.>>Coach: All it takes a big
side out to get the momentum on our side.Lead the hitter.There’s
a long valley.Read your hitter. Make sure you’re collapsing and
playing defense first before the attack.I know you’re gassed in
thoselong rallies okay, we have togut it out here, gut it out
hereCome on.Hey.You guys, we can do this.Okay?Positive.Positive.
Together.Let’s go.Big side out and battle.Warriors, one, two,
three –>>Warriors!>>Barbara: She is right.One side out will
createmomentum for them and help themget to the next spot.They
need a good pass and I’d be willing to bet this set will go to toe agree if it’s a bad pass.
>>Eric: Toe agree one of thetop players in the state. Copy an eye on number 12, the server who delivered with the
assist for victory yesterday.>>Eric: Tough shot.Too close to
the net.And it’s another point for SiouxCenter.There’s that
side out. Ole camp was looking for that.>>
Barbara: I would say this is a must-make-your-serve situation
so you can want to get yourserve in to keep this rally ofsorts
going, keep the momentumon your side.>>Eric: They decide to go
toSinnott again.>>Barbara: That’s a surprise.>>Eric: The
leader in class approximate A kills has 23
through these three sets.>> Barbara: And she just looksso
effortless doing it.>>Eric: Pretty good technique.>>Out of bounds but it was
touched.A touch!And that brings up match pointfor Waterloo
Columbus.Here is the replay. They go down the line.They say
the pink, you got itand it’s match point forWaterloo
Columbus.Out of bounds. The warriors trailing by 5. No room for error. Here is Traver. Columbus awaits the serve. Sioux Center on the attack, shot for the point, 2-0 run. They have to play clean
volleyball.Waterloo Columbus still withmatch point. 3A title on the line. The attack, back to the Sailors. Good opt defensively. Near side swing.Another point.
They’re playing like warriors here. Sioux Center on the run. Love it!Alyssa Mulder and

Center, stopped at the net, and your 3A champion goesto Waterloo
Columbus.36 and 8! Last year the 2A state runner-up This year the class 3A champ! They win it in 3 over top-ranked
suester.>>Barbara: Impressive win.A lot of amazing things
happenedduring that match and maybe themost maifergz thing for
theColumbus team is that they wereup 2-0 and they finished it
andnobody has done that against Sioux Center this tournament.>>
Eric: Took a little bit longer to get this championship
point after a mini run by Sioux Center but here it is. The block, down for the point,
and the celebration, all of that hard work pays off.Third
straight trip to state. Columbus rallied from down 2-0
yesterday, rallied from game point in number 3 to eliminate
carol Kemper yesterday in the semifinals and they defeat number one Sioux Center today.

USE IT TO HER ADVANTAGE.>>BOLHUIS IS SERVING.HANDLED BY

CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER.THAT CHEMISTRY WORKS TO THEIR
ADVANTAGE.THEY NEED TO NEVER GIVE UP.IN THE QUARTERS AND
SEMIS THEY HAVE FOUND THEMSELVES DOWN 0 -2 AND COME BACK TO WIN
IN 5.SO THEY’RE FIGHTERS.>> LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE TEAMS
FOR JANESVILLE AND WHAT THEY NEED TO DO TO REPEAT HERE DOWN
IN CEDAR RAPIDS>>THEY’VE BEEN DOMINANT ALL SEASON LONG.THEY
JUST NEED TO KEEP THE PEDALTO THE METAL. THEY’VE BOTH BULL DOZED THROUGH
EVERYONE, AND THEY JUST NEED TO CONTINUE THAT.SWING AWAY.NEVER
LET UP.THEN THEY NEED TO USE THEIR EXPERIENCE FOR WINNING THE

FINAL VOLLEYBALL MATCH FOR THE 2017 IOWA HIGH SCHOOL SEASON.WHO’S IT GOING TO BE IN
1A?JANESVILLE HAS THE FIRST POINT>>WHAT A GREAT SWING.
THOMPSON DID A NICE JOB OF HITTING THAT DEEP CORNER DOWN
THE LINE.WE’VE TALKED ABOUT IT ALL DAY.THOSE CORNERS ARE HARD
TO DEFEND, AND WHEN YOU HIT IT DOWNTHE LINE AND IN THE CORNER,
DOUBLY HARD TO DEFEND>>NICE BLOCK.AND NOW WE HAVE ANOTHER
SWING ATIT. OVER AND IT’S GOING TO BE A BALL HANDLING ERROR.TWO CONTACTS
AGAINST LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC.>>MEISTER, THE SERVE.THERE’S
TWO MEISTERS ON THE TEAM.KENNEDY IS THE 4 -YEAR STARTER, THE
SENIOR. AND JULIA, THE SOPHOMORE, MIDDLE
HITTER. AND RIGHT NOW, THE JAYS OF
LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC CANNOT LET THIS GET AWAY FROM THEM HERE
IN THE EARLY GOING>>THAT’S RIGHT.THEY REALLY NEED TO STAY
CLOSE THE ENTIRE MATCH BECAUSE JANESVILLE IS SO GOOD, THEY’LL JUST STEAM ROLL RIGHT THROUGH
THIS.>>LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC, THEY’RE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF
YOUR TV SCREEN, CELEBRATING THEIR FIRST POINT HERE IN THE
OPENING SET.>>NICE DOWN THE LINE SHOT.SO ONE OF THE REASONS
THE DOWN THE LINE SHOT IS SO EFFECTIVE ISBECAUSE IT COMES AT
YOU SO MUCH FASTER BECAUSE YOU’RE CLOSER THAN THE CROSS
PORT HIT.THE PEOPLE IN THOSE POSITIONS NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY
HAVE THEIR FEET STOPPED AND ARE READYTO DIG WHATEVER COMES AT
THEM>>LIPP, GETTING THE KILL AND GETTING THE JAYS ON THE BOARD. ANOTHER POINT.ONE OF THE THINGS
WE’RE LOOKING AT HERE IS SOME SCRAPPY PLAYERS
THAT ARE GOING TO DO EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO MAKE SURE THE
BALL DOESN’T HIT THE COURT.IT MIGHT NOT BE THE TALLEST, THE
BIGGEST OF THE VOLLEYBALL STUDENT ATHLETES WE’VE SEEN
TODAY, BUT YOU CAN’T — YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE TO TAKE THEIR
HEART AND EFFORT HERE TONIGHT>> AND THE THING IS, YOU’LL SEE IT
FROM BOTH SIDE OF THE COURT. BOTH OF THE TEAMS WANT THIS WIN.
JANESVILLE NEEDS TO PLAY LIKE THAT BECAUSE THAT’S HOW THEY’VE
PLAYED EVERY GAME THIS YEAR. WELL, GAHLEN’S THE SAME WAY.
THAT’S HOW YOU COME BACK FROM BEING DOWN 0 -2 AND WINNING THE
MATCH IN 5>>NICE CRAFTY BY KALIA, THE SENIOR MIDDLE HITTER, AVERAGING 3.4 KILLS PER SET.TIP.THROUGH
THE BLOCK, AND IT’S IN FOR A POINT.>>WELL, AND GAHLEN IS
GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL, THEY’RE GOING TO RUN THROUGH PETERS.
KATIE PETERS HAS LED THEIR OFFENSE ALL SEASON LONG, AND SHE’S LED THEIR OFFENSE ALL
TOURNAMENT LONG. BLOCKED.>>CLOSE TO THE NET.
JANESVILLE ON THE OUTSIDE, DOWN BLIND, SAILS OUT OF BOUNDS. AND LOOK AT THIS RUN BY LEMARS
GAHLEN AS THEY HAVE THEIR FIRST LEAD HERE IN THE OPENING SET. THE SERVE, BROOKLYN HEISSEL.NICE
PATH. HERE’S THE SET.A LOT OF POWER ON
THAT.YOU SEE THE BACK ROW DEFENSE FORGAHLEN.NO STOPPING
THAT ONE THOUGH AND THE KILL GOES TO BREE THOMPSON, THE 5 -11
JUNIOR OUTSIDE HITTER.HERE’S THE REPLAY.SHE STUCK WITH IT.
FIRST ONE WAS DUG UP.NOT THAT ONE THOUGH>>AND THAT TIME, YOU
COULD SEE THERE WAS A GAP BETWEEN THE TWO BLOCKERS. WE CALL THAT A HOLE IN THE
BLOCK, AND SHE HIT RIGHT INTO THE THAT HOLE.GENERALLY, THE
DEFENDSER SUPPOSED TO STEP AND IN PLAY IT, BUT EASIER SAID THAN DONE>> ALISA BENGEN, GETTING THE KILL, GOING
RIGHT AT THE BLOCK IN THE MIDDLE AND THAT’S KATIE PETERS
AGAIN>>I THINK WE’LL BE SAYING THAT A LOT TONIGHT>>SHE
ALREADY HAS THREE KILLS TO LEAD ALL PLAYERS SO FAR IN THIS
OPENING SET.AND NOW PETERS BEHIND THE SERVICE LINE.AND
WE’LL BE SAYING HER NAME A LOT AS WELL. AS YOU TAKE A LOOK AT BREE
THOMPSON, A 3 -YEAR STARTER, FRESHMAN, SOPHOMORE AND JUNIOR
YEAR, SHE HAD 23 KILLS IN THE SEMIFINALS SWEEP YESTERDAY>>
THAT TIME, SHE’S HITTING OUT OF THE MIDDLE, WHICH WE’VE SEEN HER
HIT FROM THE OUTSIDE POSITION, BUT SHE WAS UP AGAINSTA SINGLE
BLOCKER AND HAD BOTH ANGLES AVAILABLE>>YOU SEE THE
FRUSTRATION.SHE WAS SAYING, MY BAD AS SHE WAS TRYING TO SERVE
AGGRESSIVELYFOR THAT FAR SIDELINE. HERE’S SYDNEY NOW. TAKES A COUPLE DRIBBLES AND LETS
IT FLY.BENGEN, NICE ATTACK. AND HERE COMES THE JAYS.UNABLE
TO GET IT UP AND OVER THENET HERE.BUT WHAT DO YOU DO HERE
EARLY?THE TEAMS KIND OF FEELING EACH OTHER OUT IN THIS OPENING
SET.ABOUT AS TIGHT OF A START THAT YOU CAN SLICE IT RIGHT NOW
>>AND I DO THINK THERE MIGHT BE SOME JITTERS RIGHT NOW ON BOTH
SIDES OF THE COURT.JANESVILLE’S GOT TO BE FEELING ALITTLE BIT OF
PRESSURE. DEFENDING STATE CHAMPS, RANKED
NUMBER 1, AND GAHLEN, THEY ARE JUST GOING AFTER IT BECAUSE THEY
KNOW — THEY’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO WIN >>LOOK AT THAT BLOCK ON THE
OUTSIDE.KATELYN LENGAL GETTING THE STUFF.AND THE STUDENT
SECTION LOVES IT HERE AS IT’S A 9 -7 ADVANTAGE
FOR LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC.THE WILDCATS IS IN THE BACK ROW,ONE
HANDED UP AND KEPT ALIVE. AND IT RESULTS IN A POINT.NICE
TRANSITION.AND THE TIDE HAS TURNED.JANESVILLE STARTED RED
HOT AND THE JAYS NOW LEAD 10 -7 >>LANGEL DID A GREAT JOB THAT
TIME.SHE SAW SHE HAD TWO BLOCKERS TO HER RIGHT SIDE SO
SHE CUT IT BACK TO THE LEFT OUTSIDE OF THE MIDDLE BLOCKER’S HAND.NICE ANGLE>>LANGEL GETS THE SIDE OUT AS
MEISTER WHO HAD 203 KILLS IN THE REGULAR SEASON, RANKING SECOND ON THE SEASON KILLS.HERE’S THE
SERVE. SET TO THE MIDDLE.LEMARS GAHLEN
CATHOLIC ON THE ATTACK. IT GOES OUT OF BOUNDS.NOT
TOUCHED. AND WE’VE GOT OURSELVES AND 1 -POINT GAME. VOLLEYBALL TODAY.AGAIN, WE’VE
SEEN SOME GREAT SIFTS TIGERS DEFEATED WEST DES MOINES VALLEY TIGERS IN 3 SETS.
THEY CAME FROM BEHIND TO WIN IN 4 — CLASS 4A. TAKE A LOOK AT THE REPLAY HERE. BALL POPPED UP AND THAT’S AN
EASY PLAY>>MEISTER DID A GREAT JOB OF STAYING WITH IT AND
KEEPING IT OUT OF THE NET. THE BALL WAS SO TIGHT, IT WAS
BASICALLY A WRIST SNAP VERSUS A FULL ON >>BALL TOUCHED BY BENGEN AND
IT’S A KILL FOR LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC LANGEL.>>SHE’S DOING A
GREAT JOB IS IN THE MIDDLE, MAKING SURE SHE’S
CONTROLLING THAT NET.AS A MIDDLE BLOCKER, YOU WANT TOMAKE SURE
THAT ANYTHING THAT COMES UP CLOSE TO THAT NET, YOURBALL>>
THAT’S THE OUTSIDE.DOWN THE LINE.FOR A KILL.IT’S IN. AND IT IS OUT OF THE ROTATION.
WILL HEAD TO THE BENCH AND IN TO SERVE WILL BE RIEKEN.11 -11 OUR
SCORE HERE IN THE OPENING SET.TOUGH SERVE. IT’S A SERVE OF 8.>>AND THAT’S
A DIFFICULT BALL TO PLAY FOR THE SECOND CONTACT.SHE’S NOT SURE
IF IT’S GOING INTO THE NET OR NOT, SO SHE’S READY TO PLAY IT
IN CASE IT DOES, BUT IT F IT DOESN’T, SHE’SOUT OF LUCK.AND IT
DIDN’T HIT THE NET ENOUGHPLAY IT TO BOUNCE OUT AND HAVE
SOMEONE >>RIEKEN SERVES IT TOUGH FOR
JANESVILLE.LET’S SEE WHAT LEMARS GAHLEN CAN DO WITH IT HERE IN SYSTEM. STEP TO THE MIDDLE.GOOD VOLLEY
BETWEEN THESE TWO SQUADS HERE. AND GAINESVILLE, 36 AND 7 OVERALL, GETTING THE POINT.
HERE’S THE REPLAY.RIGHT AT THE BLOCK.FIRST TIME OUT.IT’S A GOOD
ONE. SO FAR, JANESVILLE, GOING INSIDE THE LEMARS HUDDLE>>THEY’RE NOT
THAT HUGE IN THE MIDDLE, GUYS. LET’S GET A BUMP CONTROL HERE
NOW SO WE CAN USE THE MIDDLE. DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE BACK
SIDES, EITHER.WE NEED TO PASS A LITTLE BETTER.HERE WE GO.SHOULD
HAVE LET THAT GO BUT I DIDN’T WANT TO BECAUSE I WANTD TO
RECOMMIT US TO DEFENSE HERE. HEY, AN OVERPASS, NO WAY, ONE OF
YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE GOT IN FRONT OF THAT.YOU JUST BOTH STOOD AND
WATCHED IT. JAYS, 1, 2, 3.>>JAYS>>I LIKE
THAT HE SAID THAT.DON’T HESITATE.GO UP.PLAY YOUR GAME.
RUN THE MIDDLE ON THE RIGHT SIDE.HE THINKS THAT JANESVILLE’S
MIDDLES ARE A LITTLE MORE VULNERABLE.SO BY RUNNING THE
MIDDLE OR THE RIGHT SIDE, THAT INVOLVES THE MIDDLE BLOCKER AND
HE THINKS THEY CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT>>LISTEN. MIKE MEYER, 38 YEARS OF
COACHING, 12 YEARS AT LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC.HE HAS 9 ’09
WINS AS A HEAD COACH. 301 OF THEM IN THE 12 YEARS AT
LUMARS.BUT ANOTHER POINT FOR THE WILDCATS.HERE IN THE OPENING
SET, MID WAYPOINT.ANOTHER TOUGH SERVE. THE JAYS GET IT ON A STRONG ATTACK.TOUCHED BY THE JAYS.ONE
FOR THAT CORNER AND THAT IS 6 KILLS FOR KENNEDY MEISTER.>>YEAH, THIS IS A GOOD ROTATION
FOR JANESVILLE SO FAR>> CRACKIN’ IT FROM HITTING OUT OF
BOUNDS.NICE PASS, QUICK SET, LOCKS WITHTHE NET. JANESVILLE STICKS WITH IT LEMARS
GAHLEN WITH THE SWING TO THE MIDDLE.BLOCKED AT THE NET.>>
GAHLEN REALLY NEEDS TO GET THIS RUN STOP.ONE OF THE THINGS HE
TALKS ABOUTAT THE HUDDLE WAS PASSING THE BALL TO THE CENTER
SO SHE CAN RUN WHATEVER BALL SHE WANTS TO RUN. PASSING AND THAT’S NOT GOING TO
GAHLEN REALLY NEEDS TO GET THEIR GET IT DONE.THEY REALLY NEED TO
GET THEIR PASS TO COVER>>GIVE A LOT OF
CREDIT TO THE SERVING OF KENNEDY RIEKEN, THE 5 -2 JUNIOR DEFENSE
SPECIALIST. THEY’RE ON A 7 -0 RUN AND LET’S
LISTEN TO THE LONGTIME COACH. IN HER 31ST YEAR, SHELLY
SORENSEN.>>YEAH, BLOCKERS, NICE JOB.WE’RE TRYING TO SET THE
BLOCK DEFENSE.GET AROUND.GET YOUR FEET MOVING.THAT’S YOUR
BALL OUT THERE.THAT’S YOUR COURT.KEEP TALKING AND GET GOING
RIGHTHERE.THE COURT’S RIGHT HERE.HERE WE GO.1, 2, 3>>WHEN
YOU’RE WINNING AND ON A ROLL, THERE’S NOT A LOT TO SAY AS A
COACH.KEEP YOUR FEET, MOVING, ABSOLUTELY.AND KEEP TALKING TO
EACH OTHER.THOSE ARE THE KEYS. ANYTIME YOU’RE HAVING PROBLEMS
AND YOU NEED TO BUILD ENERGY AND GET ENERGY GOING, MOVING YOUR
FEET AND TALKING GETS THAT STARTED.SO YOU NEVER WANT TO
LOSE THAT ASPECT OF THE GAME >>SHELLY SORENSEN HAS BEEN THE
HEAD COACH AT JANESVILLE FOR ALMOST A DECADE LONGER THAN HER PLAYERS HAVE BEEN ALIVE.27
YEARS. 614 WINS AT HER CURRENT SCHOOL.
27 YEARS AT JANESVILLE.SHE’S BEEN A MAIN STAY. SHE IS A GREAT ASSISTANT COACHING STAFF AS WELL.DANA
SORENSEN.5 -POINT LEAD FOR JANESVILLE.STARTING TO WIDEN THE
GAP HERE IN THIS FIRST SET AT THE CLASS
1A CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL.THROUGH THE BLOCK.SET THE OUTSIDE.GOOD
SWING. AND KENNEDY MEISTER IS HAVING HERSELF A NIGHT AT NO. 6.NOW HAS
7 KILLS TO LEAD ALL PLAYERS.THE NEXT ASSIST IS BREE THOMPSONWHO
HAS 3 FOR JANESVILLE.IT’S A GAME OF RUNS.IT’S A GAME OF
MOMENTUM. RIGHT NOW, JANESVILLE IS ROCKING
AND ROLLIN’.THOMPSON, STUCK. GOOD BLOCK. GOOD SWING BUT AN EVEN BETTER UP
BY JANESVILLE.THE MIDDLE, HAVING TO ALTER HER BODY IN THE AIR.
SET, BLOCKED AGAIN. SET OR DUMP, TRYING TO CATCH
THEM OFF GUARD.NIFTY SHOT, BEAUTIFUL UP. AND FINALLY THE CENTER JUMP.IF I
HAD A STOP WATCH GOING, I THINK THAT ONE LASTED A COUPLE
MINUTES, BARB.THAT’S WHAT IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE HERE IN THE
CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH>> ABSOLUTELY. AND WHAT A FUN WAY TO END A
POINT WITH THE CENTER CALLING HER OWN NUMBER >>WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT ALISA
BENGEN AND WHAT SHE DOES AT THAT CENTER POSITION A 3 -YEAR
STARTER, JUST A JUNIOR. SHE HAS 133 KILLS IN THE REGULAR
SEASON.SHE’S GOOD AT DISTRIBUTING THE BALL>>SHE’S
GREAT AT DISTRIBUTING THE BALL. SHE’S GREAT AT GETTING THE
SECOND CONTACT WHEREVER IT GOES. PROBABLY THE THING I LIKE ABOUT
HER THE MOST, AND THIS HAS BEEN EVERY YEAR, I’VE SEEN HER PLAY
IN THE STATE TOURNAMENT.YOU CAN’T TELL THAT SHE IS ONLY A
JUNIOR OR LAST YEAR A SOPHOMORE, OR THE YEAR BEFORE A FRESHMAN.
SHE RUNS THAT TEAM. SHE LEADS THAT TEAM.SHE’S KIND
OF THE GLUE THAT HOLDS IT ALL TOGETHER, AND SHE DOES A GREAT
JOB WITH IT>>KEEP AN EYE ON NUMBER 7, ALISA BENGEN.ANOTHER
POINT.ANOTHER CELEBRATION FOR THE WILDCATS AT JANESVILLE.THEY
CAME IN NUMBER 1 RANKING ALL YEAR LONG.IT’S THEIR TITLE.AND
THEY DON’T WANT TO GIVE IT BACK. THEY DON’T WANT TO GIVE IT AWAY
TO ANYBODY>>I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT >>GOOD HUSTLE DEFENSIVELY BY
LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC.BIG SWING.AND THAT’S PREE THOMPSON A
3 -YEAR STARTER.SHE HAD 475 KILLS IN THE REGULAR SEASON AVERAGING NEARLY PER SET >>BUT GAHLEN JAYS ARE GETTING A
LOT OF TOUCHES ON THE OUTSIDE ATTACK.SO IT WAS SMART FOR
BENGEN TO BRING THOMPSON IN AND HIT OUT OFTHE MIDDLE TO TRY
THAT, A DIFFERENT LOOK AT IT>> THEY PLAYED A 25 WIN BY 2. A MOUNTAIN CLIMB FROM GAHLEN TO
COME BACK AND WIN THIS FIRST SET.IT’S POSSIBLE.BUT IT’S GOING
TO BE TOUGH.IF ANYTHING, LOOKING TO GET SOMEMOMENTUM TO
CARRY INTO THE SECOND SET HERE >>AND IF ANYTHING, THE GAHLEN
JUMP JAYS ARE A SCHOOL WHO CAN GET IT>>YEP.WE HAVE A SET
POINT, THOUGH, AS WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE REPLAY >>AT A KILL NO. 5 FOR BREE THOMPSON, AND SET POINT FOR
JANESVILLE.LET IT GO.AND THE SERVICE THERE GIVES THE SIDE OUT END POINT TO THE JAYS. 8 TRIPS TO STATE TOURNAMENT IN 9 YEARS FOR LEMARS GAHLEN
CATHOLIC.A ROLL SHOT.THAT WORKED. 25 -14, A DOUBLE-DIGIT VICTORY
FOR JANESVILLE IN THE OPENING SET.DOESN’T MEAN MUCH BECAUSE
YOU’VEGOT TO WIN 3 OF THEM.BUT IT’S STILL NONETHELESS A PRETTY
DOMINANT PERFORMANCE IN THE OPENING SET BY JANESVILLE.WE’LL

LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC.A DOUBLE DIGIT VICTORY OVER LET’S TAKE A
LOOK AT SOME OF THEHIGHLIGHTS. PRETTY IMPRESSIVE.THERE HAVE
BEEN TWO PLAYERS LEADING THE OFFENSIVE CHARGE FORJANESVILLE
IN THE OPENING SET >>YEAH, AND THEY’VE DONE A NICE JOB OF DIFFERENT SHOTS, HARD
JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING THEY’VE DOWN THE LINE.TRIED WORKS >>HOW DID THESE TEAMS GET HERE? EACH NILLES IN THE ROUND ONE.
HOLY TRINITY YESTERDAY A SWEEP. GAHLEN CATHOLIC, THEY HAD TO AND
THEN LOOKING AT LEMARS COME BACK AND WIN IN THE QUARTER
FINALS AND SPRINGVILLE.SO BOTH OF THEM EARNED THEIR WAY TO PLAY FOR THIS CHAMPIONSHIP
FINAL.WELCOME BACK HERE.WE’VE BEEN HERE ALL DAY WITH IOWA
PUBLIC TELEVISION AND IT SEEMS LIKE JANESVILLE IS JUST VERY
CONFIDENT.AND I GUESS YOU WOULD EXPECT THAT OUT OF A 2 -TIME
DCHDING CHAMPION>>ABSOLUTELY. THEY HAVE BELIEF IN THEMSELVES.
THEY HAVE BULL DOZED ALL THE WAY THROUGH.THEY KNOW THAT THEY’VE
GOT THIS.HOWEVER, GAHLEN ALSO BELIEVES INTHEMSELVES, AND THEY
HAVE SHIRTSTHAT THEY SAY THE BIRDS ARE BACK.THEY BELIEVE THAT
THEY CAN TAKE THIS MATCH.AND THEY’VE PROVEN SO FAR THIS WEEK THAT THEY CAN BE DOWN AND
COME BACK AND WIN >>TAKING A LOOK, BREE THOMPSON
AND KENNEDY MEISTER, EACH WITH 7 KILLS FOR JANESVILLE.THOMPSON
HIT 278.MEISTER HIT 545 TO GK.4 KILLS FOR KATIE PETERS, GIVINGA
SIZZLING 364.AND 3 KILLS FOR KATELYN LANGEL HITTING 143.
OVERALL AS A TEAM, JANESVILLE HAD 15 KILLS, HITTING 256 TO JUST 8 KILLS, HITTING 103 FOR>>
YEAH.GAHLEN CATHOLIC.THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS THE NUMBER OF
KILLS.EVERYONE ELSE HAS BEEN CLOSE.BLOCKS FOR CLOSE.THE DIGS
ARE FAIRLY CLOSE.AND GAHLEN LEADS THAT.SO THE MAIN THING HAS
BEEN THE OFFENSE>>WE’LL SEE HOW THIS SECOND SET GETS STARTED IN ITS CELEBRATION
FOR LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC.29 -6 ON THE YEAR.THEY’VE BEEN
DOMINANT.THEY PLAY A LOT OF 2A, 3A, 4A SCHOOLS TO GET PREPARED
FOR THISMOMENT.THEY JUST DROPPED ONE SET.COMPETITION.ALL YEAR
LONG IN THE 1A THEY’RE TIED AT 1 APIECE HERE INTHE SECOND SET.
WELL, BARB, WE SEE THESE BIG RUNS BY JANESVILLE IN THE FIRST
SET AND REALLY SERVING PLAYED A BIG FACTOR IN IT. WHY IS SERVING SUCH AN IMPORTANT
PART IN HAVING A SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME ON THE VOLLEYBALL COURT?>>WELL, BECAUSE IT KIND OF
IDENTIFIES IF THE OTHER TEAM IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO RUN THEIR
OFFENSE OR NOT.IF YOU SERVE WHAT I’M GOING TO CALL FREE BALLS,
JUST POPPS THATARE EASY BALLS TO PASS, THEN THEOTHER TEAM WILL
BE ABLE TO RUN THEIR FULL OFFENSE AT YOU. BUT IF YOU SERVE A TOUGHER, MORE
AGGRESSIVE BALL TO DIFFERENT PLACES IN THE COURT, YOU MIGHT
TAKE THEM OUT OF THEIR RHYTHM. YOU MAY, AS WE’VE SEEN, GET THE PASS TO GO KIND OF AWRY AND NOT
BE ABLE TO HAVE THE CENTER GET THE BALL TO ANY OF HER OFFENSIVE
WEAPONS AND SHE JUST HAS TO THROW IT OUTSIDE ALL THE TIME
WHICH MAY CAUSE SOME PROBLEMS BECAUSE YOUR BLOCKERS KNOW WHERE IT’S GOING AND YOUR –>>AND IF
YOU’VE BEEN TUNED IN ALL DAY, YOU’VE SEEN A VARIETY OF
DIFFERENT TYPES OF SERVING FROM A VARIETY OF STUDENT ATHLETES
HERE>>ABSOLUTELY. A LOT OF THE PLAYERS ARE SERVING
A JUMP SLOPE SERVE WHICH THE BALL WILL MOVE IN THE AIR.KIND
OF LIKE A KNUCKLE BALL IN BASEBALL.THERE’S ALSO PLAYERS
WILL STAND AND SERVE A FLOAT.THE OTHER MAIN KIND YOU’LL SEE IS A
JUMP TOP SPIN AND IT HAS ITS ADVANTAGES BECAUSE IT COMES AT YOU A LOT FASTER SO IT’S
HARDER TO GET TO THE BALL. HOWEVER, ANY SPIN THERE IS ON
THE SERVE IS AN EASY BALL TO PASS BECAUSE ALL YOU HAVE TO DO
IS GET YOUR PLATFORM BEHIND THAT SPIN.SO THE ADVANTAGE TO A FLOAT
SERVE IS MOST PEOPLE CAN GET TO A FLOAT SERVE BECAUSE IT MOVES
SLOWER, BUT IT MOVES.AND SO YOU CAN BE BEHIND IT IN PERFECT
POSITION, AND IT WILL SHANK OFF YOUR ARM BECAUSE IT MOVES>>4
-3, JAYS WITH THE LEAD HEREEARLY GOING IN THE SECOND SET.WE’RE
LISTENING INSIDE THE HUDDLE WITH LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC AND HEAD
COACH MIKE MEYER IN HIS 38TH YEAR, PASSING.WE CAN PASS
BETTER, RIGHT?AND EVERYONE SAID, YEAH, YEAH, WE CAN, COACH.SUCH
AN IMPORTANT PART.>>AND THAT’S ONE OF THE THINGS WE TALK ABOUT
WITH KIDS IS I TELL THE YOUNG KIDS THAT I WORK WITH, IF YOU
WANT TO PLAY VOLLEYBALL IN COLLEGE >>YEAH, WHAT’S IT TAKE AS A
FORMER DIVISION 1 COACH>>BALL CONTROL.YEP.I DON’T CARE HOW
TALL YOU ARE, JUMP.HOW SHORT YOU ARE, HOW HIGH
YOU IF YOU HAVE BALL CONTROL AND CANGET THE BALL TO THE
CENTER NO MATTER WHAT’S GOING ON, ANY SCHOOL WILL WANT YOU>>
NICE PLAY TO BREAK THE TIE AND JANESVILLE GOES UP 5 -4. IN THE QUARTER FINALS ON LEMARS
GAHLEN CATHOLIC, MADE ITS WAY ALL THE WAY BACK FROM A 2 -SET
DEFICIT TO BEAT CAR POLEA.IN THE QUARTER FINALS, IT WAS 25 -18.
25 -27.25 -14.AND 25 -12.AND THEN 15 -10.THEY REALLY PLAYED
POORLY IN THEFIRST 2 SETS.BUT GAHLEN CATHOLIC, WHAT THEY DID WAS THEY FOUND A WAY TO
ADVANCE TO THE SEMIFINALS.AND THEN YESTERDAY AGAINST NUMBER 2
SPRINGVILLE, VERY SIMILAR AS THEY HAD TO WIN IN THE 5TH AND FINAL SET, 16 -14.>>
THAT WAS AN EXCITING MATCH TO WATCH.AND A LOT OF TIMES, YOU
KIND OF KNOW WHICH TEAM’S GOING TO WIN.PUT THAT WAS BACK AND
FORTH THE ENTIRE TIME, AND YOU NEVER KNEW WHICH TEAM WAS GOING
TO SEPARATEITSELF BY THE SLIMMEST OF OUT THE WIN MARGINS,
TWO POINTS, AND PULL>> STARTING TO PULL AWAY AND GET
SOMECEPTION HERE. JANESVILLE NOW LEADS 7 -4 AS WE SEE THE FIRST KILL COMING FROM
MADISON STANHOPE A 2 -YEAR STARTER, A SENIOR.HAD 112 KILLS
IN THE REGULAR SEASON. WE DON’T SEE A LOT OF TIMES.
SUBSTITUTING, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF COACHES KEEP WITH THEIR
ROTATION.BUT YOU’VE GOT A COUPLE OF OPTIONS.YOU CALL A TIMEOUT
TO TRY AND STOP THE RUN, OR YOU MAKE A SUBSTITUTION>>
ABSOLUTELY.AND BOTH OF THOSE ARE GOOD CHOICES.IT JUST KIND OF
DEPENDS ON WHERETHE TEAM IS, IF YOU HAVE A SUBYOU CAN PUT IN FOR
WHOM EVER YOU THINK NEEDS THE SUB.BUT A LOT OF TIMES, COACHES
WILLALSO LET IT PLAY OUT A LITTLE BIT TO SEE IF THE TEAMS
CAN KIND OF GET THEMSELVES OUT OF IT.>>
GOOD IDEA, BUT IT SAILS DEEP AND OUT OF BOUNDS.AND JANESVILLE ON
ONE OF THEIR RUNS RIGHT NOW.AND HERE’S THE TIMEOUT.9 -4 AS
JANESVILLE WINS THE FIRST SET 25 -14, THEY LEAD BY 5 HERE IN THE SECOND.LET’S GO
INSIDE THAT LEMERS HUDDLE RIGHT NOW>>AND I KNOW YOU GOT MORE
IN YOU.GOTTA HAVE MORE.OKAY?ALL RIGHT. PASS, SET, SWING.RIGHT?YOU ALSO
CAN’T SIT AND THINK ABOUT, OKAY. WHOSE IS THIS BALL?IF IT’S
THERE, YOU GO GET IT.RIGHT?OKAY.>>HERE WE GO. JAYS, 1, 2, 3.>>SO THIS WAS
INTERESTING.WE WERE ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT THIS OFF THE AIR.
HOW MUCH DO THEY HAVE LEFT IN THEIR TANK?>>THEY WENT 5 IN THE
QUARTER FINALS.THEY WENT 5 YESTERDAY.AND COACH MEYER, I
ASKED HIM, I SAID, ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT THAT?HE SAYS I
HOPE WE HAVE A ENOUGH ENERGY LEFT IN THE LAST COUPLE OF
MATCHES WE’VE HAD>>MY ANSWER IS THEY’RE 15 AND 16 YEARS OLD.
WHEN I WAS THAT OLD, I COULD DO THIS ALL DAY EVERY DAY.I DON’T
THINK THAT’S THE ISSUE TONIGHT. THEY’RE PLAYING FOR A STATE
CHAMPIONSHIP.THEY CAN REST TOMORROW.SO I THINK YOU’LL SEE
THEM GO ALL OUT.>>BUT THEY HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO STOP THE ATTACK OF BREE
THOMPSON.475 KILLS IN THE REGULAR SEASON.LET’S TAKE A LOOK
AT THIS REPLAYHERE >>AND THAT IS JUST PRETTY.IF I
WERE GK I WOULD BE MAKING SURE I HAVE AT LEAST 1 BLOCKER BUT
MOST LIKELY TWO OR THREE BLOCKERS UP ON HER BACK ROW
ATTACK.BUT THAT IS PRETTY.>>THAT’S A PRETTY ATTACK AS KILL.WELL AS KAYLA MAYER WITH
THE SPLIT THROUGH THE BLOCK, DOWN FOR THE KILL.10 -5. THE JAYS TRAIL RIGHT NOW.WELL,
HERE IN CEDAR RAPIDS, THE TOURNAMENT’S BEEN HERE SINCE
1992.IT’S THE US CELLULAR CENTER, ALLBUT TWO YEARS WHEN
THERE WAS FLOODING AND RENOVATION HERE. IT’S JUST A GREAT VENUE AND A
GREAT CITY TO HOST THE HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS
EVERY YEAR>>I AGREE.IT’S A GREAT ENVIRONMENT.FUN FOR THE
FANS.I KNOW THE CITY LOVES HAVING ALLTHESE FANS COME TO
TOWN, AND IT HELPS THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PART OF THE DOWNTOWN
AREA THAT WAS SO DRASTICALLY DEVASTATED BYTHE FLOOD IN 2008.
>>WE?JOY IT.IT FEELS LIKE HOME >>WELL, FOR ONE OF US, IT IS
HOME>>FOR YOU, IT IS. SPEAKING OF HOME, A TIMEOUT ON
THE COURT.JANESVILLE.LET’S GO INSIDE THEIR HUDDLE AND SEE WHAT COACH SHELLY SORENSEN
HAS TO SAY >>YEAH, NICE JOB.KEEP DIGGING
THAT BALL UP.KEEP TALKING.THE FIRST BALL IS SO IMPORTANT SO WE
CAN RUN OUR OFFENSE.KEEP COVERING.KEEP RIGHT HERE.SPREAD
THAT LEAD.LET’S GO.CATS.1, 2, 3 >>SHE TALKED ABOUT COVERING AND
MAKING SURE HER TEAM IS UP KIND OF CLOSE TO THE HITTER.WHEN THE
HITTERS ATTACKING SO IFIT GETS BLOCKED, THEY’RE READY TO PLAY
THAT BALL BACK UP AND TRY ANOTHER SWING>>YOU’VE GOT TO
PUSH.YOU CAN’T GET COMPLACENT, NOT WITH SO MUCH ON THE LINE HERE.
THE WINNER IS THE STATE CHAMPION HERE IN CLASS 1A.THE ATTACK GOES
LONG, AND IT’S NOW 12 -5. JANESVILLE, POPULATION 954. RIGHT AROUND BLACKHAWK AND
KRAMER COUNT IES. PROBABLY ABOUT 8 MINUTES AWAY FROM CEDAR FALLS AND THE UNI CAMPUS.
FAR NORTHWEST IOWA, RIGHT ON THE BORDER OF WENCH IOWA.THEY MADE A
LONG ROAD TO GET HERE>>IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE >>IN PLYMOUTH COUNTY, THERE. MORE CELEBRATION TO CONTACT THE
CALL.13 -5.JANESVILLE LOOKING AT THEIR SCHEDULE AND WHO THEY’VE
PLAYED THIS YEAR, BARB. I MEAN, THEY’RE PLAYING A BUNCH OF 5A SCHOOLS, INCLUDING CEDAR
FALLS WHO IS THE 5A CHAMPION>> AND THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT TO DO.
IF YOU’RE COACHING A TEAM THAT IS AS DOMINANT IN YOUR OWN CLASS
AS JANESVILLE IS, YOU WANT TO CONSTANTLY PUSH THEM AND
CHALLENGE THEM AND HELP THEM PROGRESS AND YOU’RE GOING TO DO
THAT BY PLAYING THE BIGGER SCHOOLS >>TWO CONTACTS TO CALL.DO YOU
WANT TO EXPLAIN WHAT THATIS TO OUR VIEWERS OF WHY THEY WERE
WHISTLED FOR THAT PENALTY?>> SURE.WHEN YOU CONTACT THE BALL
WITH YOUR HANDS OR IN THE SETTING POSITION, YOU NEED TO
MAKE SURE YOU CONTACT THE BALL AT THE SAMETIME WITH BOTH HANDS.
IF IT APPEARS TO THE OFFICIAL LIKE YOU’RE NOT AND LIKE YOU’VE
CONTACTED IT 1 HAND AND THEN THE OTHER, THEN THEY’RE GOING TO
CALL IT AS A DOUBLE CONTACT.NOW, THERE IS ONE TIME WHEN A DOUBLE CONTACT OR A MULTIPLE
CONTACT IS LEGAL.AND THE FIRST CONTACT OVER THE NET, YOU CAN
HAVE A MULTIPLE CONTACT AS LONG AS IT’S IN ONE
MOTION>>PERFECT PLAY COMING ON THE KILL.LET’S GO TO THE NET
CAMERA.RIGHT IN THAT CORNER AND IT’S NOW A DOUBLE DIGIT LEAD FOR
JANESVILLE HERE. JANESVILLE WON THE FIRST SET 25
-14.THAT’S A SMART DECISION TO LET THAT ONE GO>>HER TEAMMATES
ARE THERE TALKING TO HER, YELLING OUT OUT OUT.SO THAT
HELPS TO HAVE TEAMMATES THAT CAN HELP YOU ON CALLS WHEN YOU’RE
NOT EXACTLY SURE WHERE YOU ARE VERSUS WHERE THE LINE IS>>WE SAW A 7 -0 RUN BEHIND THE
SERVING OF GRACE HOVENGA AND A 5 -0 RUN BEHIND THE SERVING ONCE AGAIN OF KENNEDY RIEKEN. NO BIG RUNS COMING FROM LEMARS
GAHLEN CATHOLIC SO FAR IN THIS FINAL.MIDWAY, WE’VE PLAYED A 25
-WIN BY 2. FIRST TEAM TO WIN 3 SETS IS YOUR
CLASS 1A CHAMPION.LEMARS GAHLEN IN
GREEN ON THE LEFT.JANESVILLE WITH WHITE TOPS ON THE RIGHT.
GAHLEN CATHOLIC HAVE SOME INCREDIBLY TALENTED PLAYERS AND
PRETTY WELL BALANCED.KATIE PETERS, 292 KILLS IN THE REGULAR
SEASON. KATELYN LANGEL, 192 KILLS.118
FOR KAYLA MAYER. AND 117 FOR KRISTA LIPP.NOT TO
MENTION THE DEFENSIVE PLAYERS THAT THEY HAVE ANCHORING THAT BACK ROW.NICE SERVE BUT A
GOOD PASS OUT OF JANESVILLE. THEY’VE GOT OPTIONS. AS DOES GAHLEN.AND THAT DID HIT
THE COURT >>SO ON THAT BALL, ALL FOUR
OFFICIALS GET I’M GOING TO SAY WHAT YOU CALL A SAY IN WHETHER
THAT BALL HITS THE FLOOR OR NOT. THE PLAYER TRIED TO PAN CAKE IT
BY SLIDING A FLAT HAND UNDERNEATH, BUT IF ANY OFFICIAL
SEES THAT HIT THE FLOOR, THEY GET TO MAKE A CALL ON THAT
BECAUSE IT’S HARD TO SEE ALL THE ANGLES>>NICE BLOCK. LET’S TAKE A LOOK HERE.
BEAUTIFUL.BACK THERE FOR THE BLOCK.KATIE PETERSEN INVOLVED
WITH THE, BUT IT’S STILL A 6 -POINT
ADVANTAGE FOR JANESVILLE.SECOND SET. CLASS 1A CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL.AND
KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT TO DO WITH THAT IS BREE THOMPSON>>AND SHE
DOES A NICE JOB OF KEEPING THE BALL OUT IN FRONT OFHER SO SHE
CAN TAKE A SWING AT IT.AND THAT’S THE KEY TO AN OVERPASS.IF
THE BALL’S COMING DEEP, YOU HAVE TO TAKE A STEP BACK AND
KIND OF YOUR LAST TWO STEPS TO YOUR APPROACH BACKWARDS SO YOU
CAN KEEP THE BALL OUT IN FRONT OF YOU >>BREE THOMPSON, HAVING A NICE
BIG TOURNAMENT AS EXPECTED AS THE JAYS GET THE POINT.HER
FATHER IS TALLY THOMPSON, FORMER NCAA WRESTLING CHAMPION.
HE’S AN IOWA FARM BOY.HE WRESTLED AT UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, WON THE HEV Y WEIGHT,
THEN WENT ON AND WON TO 2005 AND 2006 AND REPRESENTED THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA AT THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP>>SO I’M GUESSING
NOT ONLY A LITTLE BIT OF AN ATHLETIC FAMILY BUT A LITTLE BIT OF GRR>>KEEP
AN EYE ON NUMBER 12>>YEAH. WRESTLERS DEFINITELY HAVE THAT >>HERE’S ALISA BENGEN, A
QUARTERBACK CENTER FOR JANESVILLE.SHE EITHER GETS AN
ACE OR MAKES IT AT LEAST A DIFFICULT PASS>>I THOUGHT YOU
WERE GOING TO SAY SHE EITHER GETS AN ACE OR SHE DOESN’T. AND I SAID, THAT’S THE WAY WE
ALL SERVE. A 6 -POINT LEAD FOR JANESVILLE. HERE’S THEIR SERVE.AND THERE IS
THE DAUGHTER OF THEWRESTLER. IT’S A LITTLE GRR COMING AT YOU
FROM THE MIDDLE.>>YEAH, I THINK IT’S SAFE TO SAY SHE HAS A
LITTLE GRR>>WELL, SHE HAD 23 KILLS, HITTING 5 -12 HITTING
PERCENTAGEIN THE SEMIFINALS. MEISTER HAD 12 KILLS WITH 5
BLOCK. AND THAT WENT OVER FORT MADISON
HOLY TRINITY.JANESVILLE HAD 51 KILLS IN JUST 29 AT HOLY TRINITY
IN THAT SEMIFINAL SWEEP. 25 -17, 25 -20, 25 -19.AND
REALLY WHAT I WAS IMPRESSED WITH BY JANESVILLE WAS THEY
NEUTRALIZED THE STATE’S LEADING HITTER HOLDING EMILY TO JUST 14
KILLS. SHE COMES IN AVERAGING ABOUT 19 KILLS PER SET.TAKE A LOOK.THE
CORNER AS THE SIDE OUT COMES, RIGHT TO>>NICE JOB BY PETERS.
IT LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS GOING ACROSS.THE BLOCKER WAS THERE.
THEY GAVE HER A LITTLE LINE, AND NEEDLE SHE WAS ABLE TO THREAD
THAT >>HERE ARE THE JAYS .THE BLOCK HAS BEEN PRETTY SOLID FOR JANESVILLE HERE TONIGHT. TIMING AND SOME SUBSTITUTIONS COMING
IN. HERE’S THE SERVE. BAIL SAILS DEEP, AND IT’S
JANESVILLE 22.LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC 13.IF YOU’RE JUST
JOINING US, IT WAS A 25 -14 VICTORY FOR JANESVILLE IN THE FIRST SET.
THAT’S A PASS WITH SET. THAT ONE FELL DEEP AS WELL >>THAT TIME SHE JUMPED SO THE
BALL FELL BEHIND HER.THAT MAKES YOUR TRAJECTORY GO UP.IF THAT
HAPPENS, YOU NEED TO ROLL YOUR WRIST OVER THE BALL AND SNAP
YOUR WRIST SO IT POPS IN AND COMES BACK DOWN IN THE COURT.I

AND WE HAVE A COUPLE HIGH SCHOOLS INTERESTEDIN STARTING
PROGRAMS AS WELL.IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHERE THE
GAME GOES AND THERE ARE CLUB TEAMS OUT THERE FOR BOYS SO THAT
MIGHT HELP GET SOMEOF THE HIGH SCHOOL MORE INTERESTED >>AS YOU TUNE INTO THESE
BROADCASTS HERE ON IOWA PUBLIC TELEVISION, YOU SAY THAT LOOKS
FUN.YOU CAN PLAY IT AT THE REC CENTER AND AT ALMOST ANY AGE >>AND THE SEASON FOR THE MEN’S
IS IN THE SPRING.SO IT WOULD COMPETE WITH TRACK AND TENNIS
AND GOLF 4 -3.>>KEEP AN EYE ON THAT. WHAT A HARD HIT BALL.VERY GOOD
PLACEMENT TOO>>AND SHE’S UP THERE EARLY.SHE’S ABLE TO DO
THAT BECAUSE GAHLEN CATHOLIC IS GETTING THEIRPAZES TO THE

FROM THE CENTER RIGHT AWAY.>>JANESVILLE CELEBRATING 5 -4.
THE WILDCATS WITH THE ADVANTAGE AND 36 WINS THIS SEASON. ONLY 7 LOSSES. NUMBER 7, ALISA BENGEN BACK TO

HAPPENING. GOOD HUSTLE. NICE BLOCK. DOWN BALL ATTEMPT.WE’RE IN THE
MIDDLE OF ONE OF THOSE LONG RALLIES BETWEEN THESETWO 1A
FINAL PARTICIPANTS. THERE’S THE SIDE UP THEY NEED.
SUBSTITUTION IN OUT OF THE ROTATION.SO GOOD AT THE NET.
LET’S SEE WHAT SHE CAN DO BEHIND THE SERVICE LINE. KATIE PETERS.KATELYN LANGEL
HAMMER TIME.>>AGAIN, OUT OF THE MIDDLE.SO
GAHLEN CATHOLIC OFFENSE IS RUNNING OUT OF THE MIDDLE AND
THEY CAN ONLY DO THAT BECAUSE THEIR PASSING HAS GOTTEN A
LITTLE BETTER THAN IT WAS THE FIRST COUPLE SETS >>LANGEL SECOND ON THE TEAM IN KILLS WITH 192, TRAILING ONLY
KATIE PETERS.THOMPSON ROLL SHOT. SMART DECISION.IF YOU GO UP,
YOU’RE SET, YOU’REIN THE AIR.AT WHAT POINT DO YOU DECIDE WHATI’M
GOING TO DO?WHERE AM I GOING TO HIT IT?WHAT TYPE OF SHOT AM I
GOING TO DO?>>I’VE NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THATBEFORE. SOME PLAYERS THINK ABOUT IT
AHEAD OF TIME.BUT WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS DISGUISE IT AS MUCH AS
YOU CAN. SO SHE DID A GREAT JOB THAT TIME OF LETTING IT KIND OF SIT IN HER
HAND AND ROLLING IT RIGHT OVER THE BLOCK>>A ROLL SHOT LOOKS
DIFFERENT THAN A TIP AND SURE DIFFERENT THAN A HARD SPIKE >> ABSOLUTELY.>>LIVERMORE A NICE SERVE FOR
THE JAYS.THE JAYS GET THE POINT. THEY’RE HANGING TOUGH HERE IN
THE THIRD. IT’S A MUST-WIN SITUATION FOR
LEMARS GAHLEN CATHOLIC. AS NUMBER 7 LANGEL NOW WITH 7 KILLS, TRAILING ONLY BRITT AND
PETERS.A SIDE OUT.>>NICE AGGRESSIVE SWING.THEY’VE

DIAGONALLY WITH IT TO THE FAR CORNR.>>THAT WAS GREAT.IT WAS A
LITTLE BIT OF A FASTER SET TO THE OUTSIDE WHICH MEANS THE
BLOCK IS DEFINITELY BEAT.SO SHE WAS ABLE TO SWING WITHOUTHAVING
TO WORRY ABOUT A BLOCKER AND PUT THE BALL AWAY >>9 -8, JANESVILLE WITH THE LEAD.TIP.BACK ROW ATTACK.I MIGHT
HAVE LET THAT GO, AND I THINK IT WOULD HAVE BEEN OUT ON
JANESVILLE.INSTEAD THYRX PLAYED IT AND THE WILDCATS FIRST TO

HERE.5 DIFFERENT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCHES, THE CULMINATION OF A
2017 HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL SEASON.BUT HALL OF FAME
INDUCTEES AND THE GOLDEN PLAQUE DISTINCTION AWARD AS WELL GIVEN
OUT, HONORING THE PAST AND THE PEOPLE THAT MADE THE IOWA HIGH SCHOOL
GIRLS ATHLETIC UNION AND THE SPORT OF VOLLEYBALL HERE IN IOWA
SO GREAT>>ONE OF THE THINGS THE UNION HAS BEEN DOING IS
TRYING TO BRAND THEMSELVES.YOU SEE THE PINK ALL OVER THE PLACE.
THE COURT.WE’RE WEARING PINK.YOU SEE THE CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS GET
PINK T-SHIRTS.AND SO IT’S A WAY OF BRANDING AND KIND OF MAKING
YOURSELF KNOWN>>WE’LL TALK MORE ABOUT THAT INA MINUTE. FIRST TIMEOUT CALLED BY LEMARS
GAHLEN CATHOLIC.LET’S GO TO THEIR HUDDLE>>IT’S IMPORTANT
WE TRY — WE’VE GOT TO TRY.WE’RE NOT GOING TO LIKE OURSELVES
OTHERWISE.THERE’S THINGS WE CAN DO THAT WILL WORK.SO WE’RE
GIVING AWAY WAY TOO MANY EASY POINTS.OKAY? JAYS, 1, 2, 3.>>HE’S RIGHT.IT
IS ASKING A LOT OF THEM, BUT HE’S ALSO RIGHT WHEN HE SAYS WE
AREN’T GOING TO LIKE OURSELVES VERY MUCH TOMORROW IF WE DON’T
GIVE IT ALL WE’VE GOT BECAUSE THERE MAY NOT BE ANOTHER CHANCE
AND FOR SURE WITH THIS GROUP, THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER
CHANCE.SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL DIG DOWN AND SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO.>>WELL,

CONFERENCE HAS DOMINATED CLASS 1A, WINNING 8 OF THE LAST 9
YEARS BETWEEN THE TWO SCHOOLS THAT ARE ONLY 10 MILES APART, JANESVILLE AND
TRAP, LERCH LA>>THAT’S IMPRESSIVE.>>ANOTHER THING
THAT’S IMPRESSIVE IS JUST THE DOMINANCEFROM NORTHEAST IOWA
SCHOOLS TODAY. USED TO BE NORTHWEST IOWA THAT
DOMINATED, BUT YOUR 5A CHAMPIONS, CEDAR FALLS, 4A, DUBUQUE WELLER, 3A, WATERLOO, 2A, DYKE NEW HARTFORD, AND 1A,
IF JANESVILLE WINS FOR THE THIRD STRAIGHT TIME IS ANOTHER NORTHEAST IOWA SCHOOL.
SOMETHING’S IN THE WATER. SOMETHING’S HAPPENING THERE.IT’S
SERVICE ACE AND BOY DID THEJAYS NEED THAT.THEY GET IN THE
DOUBLE DIGITS. THEY TRAIL JUST BY 2. LET’S SEE IF THEY CAN GET THAT MOMENTUM GOING HERE.KAYLA MAYER

GOES OUT OF BOUNDS AND ON A RUN OF THEIR OWN.WE HAVEN’T SEEN IT
HERE IN THIS 1A FINAL, BUT A 4 -0 RUN.WE’VE

BEING HERE.OBVIOUSLY, WE LOVE BEING HERE.BUT IT’S ALSO THE
REFEREES, THE BALL GIRLS.IT’S AN HONOR FOR ALL THESE PEOPLE TO
BE INVOLVED IN IT.IT TAKES EVERYONE TO PULL THIS
CHAMPIONSHIP DAY OFF>>THAT’S RIGHT.THE BALL GIRLS ARE PICKED
FROM LOCAL SCHOOLS THAT HAVE VOLLEYBALL PROGRAMS THAT DIDN’T
MAKE THE STATE TOURNAMENT, AND THEY DO A 3 -BALL ROTATION. AND THIS YEAR, THEY’VE COME FROM LISBON, ALBER NET, NORTH LYNN,
AND ANNAMOSA.SO THANKS TO THOSE GIRLS WHO CAME OUT AND MADE SURE
