St. Vincent trips in volleyball quarters
The St. Vincent volleyball team fell one win short of a trip to the state's final four.
St. Vincent, which upset defending Class 2 state champion Scott City in the district final Tuesday, was swept by St. Pius in Saturday's state quarterfinal match at Bloomfield, Mo.
The 25-18, 26-24 loss came after the Indians won their sectional contest earlier in the day, sweeping Mountain View Liberty 25-17, 25-22.
St. Vincent finished the season with a 24-15-3 record.
"I'm very proud of the girls," St. Vincent coach Pam Riney said. "We came off that big win against Scott City and the girls were really focused. They really played hard and gave it all they had."
Chelsie Boxdorfer led the Indians against St. Pius with eight kills, followed by Monika Smith with seven.
Amanda Steinbecher led in assists with 12 and Addie Hotop added nine.
"St. Pius is a good ballclub. I hope they do well at state," Riney said. "We played them early in the season and lost a close match."
Alanna Steinbecher paced St. Vincent with nine kills against Mountain View Liberty. Miranda Unterreiner led in digs with 25.
"We kind of got after them pretty good," Riney said of the sectional match.
St. Pius, which swept Bloomfield in its sectional, will advance to the final four with a 27-8-2 record.
Mountain View Liberty finished 23-10-4 while Bloomfield wound up 29-6.
