St. Pius earns state volleyball title

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Four champions were crowned Saturday as the two-day state high school volleyball tournament concluded at the Show Me Center.

Lafayette, from suburban St. Louis, won the Class 4 title with a 25-23, 24-26, 25-16 victory over Lee's Summit West from the Kansas City area.

Villa Duchesne, another suburban St. Louis team, prevailed in Class 3 by sweeping St. Pius X of Kansas City 25-21, 25-22.

St. Pius X of Festus, which handed Scott City its only loss of the season during the sectional round, claimed Class 2 honors with a 27-25, 25-16 win over Fatima.

Defending Class 1 champion Valle Catholic from Ste. Genevieve fell short in its bid for a repeat by losing to Eminence 25-16, 25-17.

Just some thoughts about the Show Me Center hosting the State Volleyball Championships:

1. The venue is great for watching volleyball. Both the pool play and the championships. Close to the action and good lighting.

2.So happy the tournament is on this side of the state. Maybe now some people who watch "not very talented volleyball teams play each season" will go to the tournament and see how it is supposed to be played.

3.The tournament needs to be advertised more than what it was around the region. Get the word out!!!
