St. Cecilia is ranked No. 1 in Class C-2. In all likelihood, a loss in Friday night's Class C-2, District 4 finale against Sutton wouldn't have ended the Hawkettes season. A lot of dominoes needed to fall in order to keep STC out of the state meet.
But that didn't mean the girls on the St. Cecilia roster weren't any less motivated. STC (25-8) notched its third-straight trip to the state volleyball tournament with a 25-15, 25-23, 25-18 sweep over the Fillies (19-12) at Hastings High.
"It never gets old," said STC head coach Alan VanCura, whose latest team is the 19th in school history to reach the state tourney.
