Lady Spartans make history with state volleyball title on 104.1 WRLU

The three-peat is complete.  The Luxemburg-Casco Spartan volleyball team captured the WIAA Division 2 championship on Saturday afternoon, defeating the McFarland Spartans three sets to one at the Resch Center in Green Bay.

 

L-C won their third consecutive state title with scores of 25-17, 25-15, 27-29, and 25-15.

 

The first set saw a close, back-and-forth scoring until L-C took control at 19-13 and finished strong.  In the second set, the Spartans were trailing 12-15 before going on an impressive 13-0 run to take a two sets to none lead.

 

Luxemburg-Casco lost the marathon third set, but did storm back from a 23-17 deficit before McFarland closed it out 27-29 in an extra session.  The momentum from that near-miraculous comeback seemed to carry over to set four for Luxemburg-Casco.

 

The L-C Spartans seized control early in the final set by taking a commanding 14-7 lead early before closing out the championship with a Kylie Hanson kill.

 

Grace Holschuh led Luxemburg-Casco with 23 kills and 11 digs.  Autumn Flynn added 14 kills, while Emma Johnson provided a strong floor game with 48 assists and 12 digs.

 

Luxemburg-Casco (42-5) becomes only the tenth school in WIAA volleyball history to ever win three consecutive state championships.
