SHE’LL BE BACK NEXT YEAR.>>A SWING AND A MISTHAT TIME.>>MAYBE A COUPLE ERRORS WILL GET COLUMBUS BACK IN THIS SET HERE.>>THIRD AND NINTH SO THEY’RE DOWN BY 7. THEY’VE BEEN ABLE TO GET WITHIN 2. CAN THEY GET A LITTLE CLOSER? AND THIS ONE BLOCKED? NO, BLOCKED DOWN. WOLFPACK WITH A STRONG STRIKE.>>WINTERFELD, THE SENIORS, THEIR NUMBER ONE HITTER, 61 KILLS. WHEN THEY GET IT, THEY’LL GO TO THEIR POWER AND THAT’S KIND OF THE FLIGHT.>>AND SINNOTT’S BEEN PERFECT AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT IN SERVING. MCMANUS GETS A FACE ON THE BACK ROW.>>AND I DIDN’T THINK THAT — KIND OF A SET RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE, GETS A BIG BLOCK. SHE TURNED THAT BALL INSIDE, AND EXCELLENT ATTACK.>>IN THE LEAD, TRIMMED DOWN TO 2 AGAIN. AND HERE’S BRIANNE EIGHME.>>EIGHME CAN’T GET THAT ONE TO FALL IN AND THE WOLFPACK GET A TOUGH POINT.>>THAT WAS A GOOD TRY ON THAT, BUT THEY’RE SMART HITTERS AND WHEN THEY DON’T HAVE THE POWER, THEY GO TO THE OFF SHOT. AND COLUMBUS HAS TO REALLY ANTICIPATE THAT. THEY CAN SEE THE HITTERS ARE NOT IN BALANCE AND THEY CAN PICK UP A ROLE SHOT. AND THEY’RE CALLING IT BACK FOR A BLOCKER, BACK ROW SITTER TRIED TO GO UP FOR THE FALL AND SHE’S UP THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ATTACK AND THE BALL HIT HER HAND, SHE’S CONSIDERED A BACK ROW BLOCKER. SHE’LL REALLY GO TO TRY AND SET THE BALL. THEN THEY CAN ACTUALLY GET THE NET CALL WHEN YOU’RE JUST UP THERE TRYING TO SET, YOU’LL BE THE BACK ROW BLOCKER. SHE’S NOT ALLOWED.>>MCMANUS, THE SHOT BLOCKED, 5 FEENSTRA. TWO POINT AWAY FROM THE WOLFPACK MAKE TAKING A 2-SET TO NONE LEAD MERE IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.>>JUST A HAND SET, BEAUTIFUL BLOCK. COVERAGE WAS THERE, BUT A LITTLE TOO TIGHT.>>THEY ARE SO STRONG AFTER THAT FEENSTRA AGAIN WITH ANOTHER BLOCK.>>THAT’S TOUGH. SHE’S REALLY GOT TO TRY AND FIGURE OUT A WAY TO HIT AROUND, TIP THE BALL, HIT HIGH OFF THE HAND.>>AND COLUMBUS CATHOLIC CAN CALL THEIR FINAL TIMEOUT HERE IN THE SET. 7 POINTS FOR WESTERN CHRISTIAN. LET’S GO TO THEIR HUDDLE.>>KEEP USING BALANCE ENERGY. YOU’RE MAKING GREAT PUSHES. KEEP THE BALL IN. SPREAD OUT OUR OFFENSE. STAY AGGRESSIVE HERE. AGGRESSIVE FINISH. WE GOT YOUR BACK. LET’S GO.>>THE COACH ADVISING THE CENTERS THEY’RE DOING A REALLY NICE JOB OF MIXING UP THE OFFENSE AND KEEPING COLUMBUS OFF BALANCE. THEY NEED TO GET THE BALL AND STAY AGGRESSIVE. THEY’RE PROBABLY BEST KNOWN FOR THEIR TREMENDOUS OFFENSIVE POWER THEY HAVE ACROSS THE BOARD.>>SO HERE IN THE SECOND SET, WESTERN CHRISTIAN WITH 13 KILLS AND 4 BLOCKS. THEY’VE ALSO GOT AN AID AND SERVING HERE FOR THE SECOND SET.>>THAT’S A NICE SET.>>HIT IT FROM THE BACK ROW AND WESTERN CHRISTIAN WAVEARS LITTLE BIT. WATERLOO CATHOLIC GETS THE POINT.>>THEY HAVE TROUBLE HITTING ON THE OUTSIDE. THE BACK ROW ATTACK GETS A POINT BACK HERE FOR WATERLOO COLUMBUS.>>WHOA, HOW ABOUT THAT TO TAKE THE SECOND SET.>>I’VE GOT, YOU’VE GOT, IT LET’S JUST DROP IT OVER THE NET.>>25-19, THE WOLFPACK TAKES THE SECOND SET OVER THE SAILORS AND WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK. I WANT TO GO. I WANT TO EXPLORE. .>>THEY’VE GOT THE LEAD ON WATERLOO COLUMBUS CATHOLIC. EARLIER WEEK, WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO CATCH UP WITH THE MEMBERS OF THE WOLFPACK AND HEAD COACH TAMMI VEERBEEK.>>WE DEFINITELY KNOW THEY’RE A REALLY GOOD TEAM, OBVIOUSLY. BUT WE’VE ALWAYS KIND OF SAID, EVEN LIKE IF WE’RE BEHIND, WE JUST STAY CALM AND FOCUSED AND JUST TAKE CARE OUR SIDE OF THE NET AND WE DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE OTHER SIDE. I THINK THAT WILL DEFINITELY HELP AS WE GET DOWN, BUT I DON’T THINK — I THINK WE KNOW HOW GOOD THEY ARE, AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO UNDERESTIMATE THEM.>>YEAH, KEEPING THEM FOCUSED AND IT’S THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE TO KEEP THEM FOCUSED. THEY SAY PIVOTAL HIGH SCHOOL SPORT AND WE’RE VERY MUCH RESPECTIVE OF WATERLOO, WHAT THEY DID AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT HERE, KNOCKING OFF THE TEAMS. THEY’RE HOT. SO WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO COME OUT RIGHT AWAY AND SHOW WHAT WE’RE ABOUT, OUR VOLLEYBALL TEAM, AND I EXPECT THIS TO BE A GREAT BATTLE.>>THE WESTERN CHRISTIANS, JUST A SET AWAY FROM GETTING THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP AGAIN, THE CLASS 2A. AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT WATERLOO COLUMBUS CATHOLIC, WHAT DO THEY DO?>>JUST PASS THE BALL. THEY HAVE TO HAVE FUN. THEY’VE DONE A PHENOMENAL JOB HERE AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT. THEY’VE GOT THEIR HANDS FULL HERE WITH WESTERN CHRISTIAN. IT’S GOING TO BE A TOUGH UPHILL ROAD FOR THEM.>>LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE HIGHLIGHT FROM THE SECOND SET. AGAIN, WE SAW THAT, COME UP HUGE FROM WESTERN CHRISTIAN.>>WE’VE GOT OUTSIDE ATTACK, MIDDLE ATTACK, NICE OUTSIDE KILL FOR WATERLOO COLUMBUS. YOU’LL SEE WESTERN CHRISTIAN.>>HERE’S YOUR TEAM STATS. 23 KILLS TO 28, BUT THE BLOCK, THERE’S THE ADVANTAGE RIGHT NOW AT 10-2. AND THEN ASSISTANCE WESTERN CHRISTIAN WITH THREE SO FAR.>>THAT’S ABOUT THEIR AVERAGE. THE DOMINATION OF THE NET, WATERLOO COLUMBUS HAS TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO WORK AROUND IT, EITHER MORE BACK ROW ATTACKS, REALLY PLAY TOUGH DEFENSE AND GET SOME QUICKER ATTACKS, TRY TO ISOLATE ONE ON ONE WITH THE BLOCKERS.>>THE WOLFPACK WITH 40 WINS ON THE SEASON, 4 STARTERS FROM A YEAR AGO. TRYING TO TAKE THIS THIRD SET AND SWEEP WATERLOO COLUMBUS. AND THE FIRST POINT WILL BELONG TO WATERLOO COLUMBUS.>>IT’S GREAT HOW THEY CAN ATTACK AND CALL THE BLOCK AND TIPPING THE BLOW THAT’S GOING HARD THROUGH THE ATTACK AND JUST A NICE JOB THERE BY COLUMBUS.>>HERE’S MCMANUS.>>THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE TO KEEP DOING MORE OF THOSE DIGS.>>OUT OF THE BACK, THIS SIDE BY SHANNON AND WESTERN CHRISTIAN GETS THE SIDE UP.>>INTERESTING OFFENSE. WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH COACH VEERBEEK AND TALK TO HER ABOUT USING TWO CENTERS AND SHE SAID THIS IS A COMMON OFFENSE FOR THEM.>>THEY TAKE TURNS WITH THE CENTER, MAYBE THERE’S A DIFFERENT HITTER COMBINATION THAT WORKS BETTER FOR THEM SO THEY FLIPPED OUT THOSE TWO CENTERS AND GIVING THE FRESHMAN SOME EXPERIENCE SINCE SHE’LL BE STEPPING INTO A FULL-TIME ROLE NEXT YEAR AS A SOPHOMORE.>>AND HERE’S WINTERFELD WHO WILL SERVE 2-1 WOLFPACK WITH THE LEAD.>>THE SERVE IS AN AIR FOR WINTERFELD.>>SHE GOT TWO OFFENSE. GREAT THERE FOR COLUMBUS. AND WE’VE GOT CHRISTIAN, THEIR CENTERS WELL WITH COLUMBUS, A BACK END AS THE CENTER, SENIOR. NICE SERVE.>>BLOCKED BACK FOR THE SAILERS.>>COLUMBUS UP THERE, SEEING A REALLY GOOD TURN ON THE BLOCK AND JUST TRYING TO TURN THE BALL AGAIN BACK INTO THE COURT. AND THE SAILORS TRY TO LEAVE THAT AND HAPPEN TOO MUCH IN THIS MATCH HERE.>>BACK WITHOUT A COUPLE OF LEAD CHANGES HERE ALREADY. AND THEN SEE THAT A WHOLE LOT HERE AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT.>>NICE BLOCK THERE BY COLUMBUS.>>AT LEAST IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. THAT VIOLATION AND THIS WILL GO TO WESTERN CHRISTIAN.>>AND THEY’RE TRYING TO HOLD HER OWN, ONLY A SOPHOMORE, BUT TOO MUCH OF A SWING ON THE BLOCK. YOU’VE JUST GOT TO PENETRATE ENOUGH TO HOP IN ON THAT ONE. BEAUTIFUL PASS.>>AND IN THE MIDDLE, THE HARD HIT.>>THIS IS WHAT GOT THEM TO THE STATE FINALS, THAT QUICK ATTACK IN THE MIDDLE. THAT’S ONE I MADE A NOTE OF. I WATCHED THE SEMIFINALS WHEN THEY UPSET THE OTHER TEAM.>>TRYING TO ATTACK.>>LATERAL JUMP THERE.>>AND THIS WILL BE WITHDRAWN.>>THE BALL IS GETTING IN A LITTLE TOO FAR.>>THAT WAS THE SENIOR, FEENSTRA. ANOTHER TOUGH PASS THERE.>>CUCKOO — KOOI WILL SEND IT TO THE BACK ROW.>>BEAUTIFUL BACK ROW ATTACK. ALMOST GOT IT IN THERE.>>WINTERFELD ALMOST WITH A BIG ONE.>>THAT WAS A GOOD SWING. ALMOST. SHE WAS BARELY OUT. DIDN’T QUITE CATCH THE LINE. THE WHOLE LINE IS CONSIDERED GOOD.>>VEERBEEK, THAT ONE BLOCKED OUT FOR THE POINT, SIDE OUT GOES TO WESTERN CHRISTIAN.>>AND VEERBEEK WITH THAT PATENTED FLIGHT ATTACK. SHE LOVES THAT WHITE SIDE FLIGHT ATTACK, 30 SECONDS OVER THERE, COACH’S DAUGHTER 6-2, MIDDLE HITTER. SHE HAS ONE MORE YEAR TO PLAY.>>AND AN ERROR.>>THAT’S 2-3 THIS MATCH. VERY UNCHARACTERISTIC.>>WATERLOO COLUMBUS STILL HOLDS ONTO THE LEAD AT 6-5. AND RIGHT BACK FOR THE WOLFPACK.>>A BIG JUMP ON THE OUTSIDE. SHE’S THEIR NUMBER ONE ATTACKER, 361 KILLS COMING INTO THE YEAR. AND ONE OF THE THEIR SHORTER ATTACKERS SO THAT TELLS YOU THE KIND OF HEIGHT THAT WESTERN CHRISTIAN HAS. AND A SERVE SPECIALIST.>>AND WITH A KILL.>>DOESN’T TAKE A HARD HIT. A REALLY NICE WELL-PLAYED BALL, USING A TOP TO GET THAT BALL TO DROP DEAD.>>HERE’S EIGHME.>>WINTERFELD.>>A BIG SWING OUT THERE AND THEIR NUMBER ONE PLAYER ON THE OUTSIDE. BIG ATTACK, THEY DO HAVE THE POWER. AND BEAUTIFUL SET THERE BY GRANSTRA. I BELIEVE SHE WAS A CENTER BEFORE.>>IT WAS A LITTLE STRONG.>>DIDN’T GET A GOOD CONTACT ON THAT BALL. YOU HIT A BALL WITH AN OPEN HAND, IT REALLY SNAPS THE WRIST WITH THE CONTACT.>>WE DO HAVE OUR SECOND LEAD CHANGE HERE FOR THE THIRD SET.>>FEENSTRA, BLOCK BACK. A GOOD DIG OUT OF THE MIDDLE.>>AND MCMANUS WITH A HARD START THEY WERE LUCKY THERE FOR A MOMENT, AND GOES WILD.>>GOOD HUSTLE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE COURT AND GREAT PLAY. BOTH STRAPPING.>>WHAT A BATTLE HERE EARLY ON. HERE’S LAUREN MCMANUS.>>AND A BEAUTIFUL PASS. THERE’S A TOUCH OFF THE FIELD.>>AND THE WOLFPACK GETS A POINT.>>NICE SHORT PLAY THERE. TIGHT HITTER WITH A USE TO PUT THE BALL IN THE BAG. THE BLOCKER HAS TO TURN THAT BALL INTO THE COURT. DON’T LET HIM USE IT LIKE THAT.>>THEY’RE TAKING UP OFF THE TAPE.>>STAR POWER REALLY UP THERE, SENIORS COMING INTO THE YEAR.>>THIS IS THE LARGEST LEAD OF THE SET.>>NICE ROLL AND NICE SET.>>WESTERN CHRISTIAN.>>THIS IS COULD BE EFFECTIVE FOR WATERLOO COLUMBUS, BUT THEY’LL HAVE TO HIT ROLL SHOTS AND MIX THINGS UP. THEY JUST CAN’T QUITE COMPETE WITH THAT TALL BLOCK OF WESTERN CHRISTIAN. GREAT DEFENSE.>>AND END UP IN THE SAND AND THE SAILORS HAVE FOUGHT THEIR WAY BACK FROM A 2-POINT DEFICIT TO TIE IT UP.>>I LOVE THAT QUICK OUTSIDE SET. IT’S HARD TO DEFEND THAT AND REALLY DEFEND THE BLOCK OF WESTERN CHRISTIAN, THE HITTER FIELD TO GET THERE BEFORE THEY DO.>>RIGHT BACK INTO THE MIDDLE. JUST A STRONG SHOT.>>THAT MIDDLE IS TOUGH TO DEFEND. NICE BY FRESHMAN SINNOTT.>>A ROLLING SERVE OUT OF THE QUARTER.>>THAT CORNER ATTACK THERE.>>AND THAT WILL GET LOCKED OUT AND WOLFPACK GETS ANOTHER 2-POINT LEAD HERE AT 12-10.>>NICE TRY THERE BY THE BLOCK TO GET THAT BALL IN. ALMOST ABLE TO DEFLECT IT BACK INTO THE COURT.>>FOURTH POINT OF THIS MATCH FOR WESTERN CHRISTIAN.>>51 ACE FOR THE YEAR. VERY EFFECTIVE LOW SERVE.>>IT’S TOUGH TO PICK UP WHEN SHE ROLLS IT OUT OF THE CORNER HERE.>>REALLY NICE SERVE.>>AND IT ROLLS BACK TO CHRISTIAN.>>NOBODY REALLY GOT THEIR HANDS ON THAT. THE CENTER PUT THE BALL TOO HIGH AND TOO FAR OUT OF THE HANDS THERE. THERE WAS TOO MUCH ON IT. A LITTLE BIT OF A SEPARATION HERE FOR WESTERN CHRISTIAN PASS. SEE WHERE SHE GOES WITH THIS OFFENSE HERE.>>VEERBEEK GETS THE KILL AND NOW THE WOLFPACK WITH A 5-POINT LEAD.>>BEAUTIFUL PLAY THERE.>>AND A TIMEOUT TAKEN HERE BY WATERLOO COLUMBUS CATHOLIC. A 5-POINT ADVANTAGE FOR WESTERN CHRISTIAN. AND THE SAILORS HAVE HAD TO REALLY FIGHT THEIR WAY TO GET TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. AGAIN, THEY HAVE 10 LOSSES ON THE SEASON, BUT ALL TO TOP 10 TEAMS OR 12 LOSSES TO TOP 10 TEAMS. AND OF COURSE, HERE’S HOW THEY GOT TO THE FINAL. THEY HAD TO BEAT GOVERNOR FREDERICKSBURG, A TEAM THEY CONTENDED WITH THROUGHOUT THE SEASON AND NOW HERE AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT. AND THEN THEY SURPRISED EVERYBODY BY SWEEPING UNITY CHRISTIAN TO GET HERE. AND NOW WESTERN CHRISTIAN A 3-0 WINNER AGAINST GRUNDY AND THEN ST. ALBERT TO GET TO THIS GAME. AND NOW LEADING INTO THE THIRD SET 16-10.>>THAT WAS A SHOCKER WHEN COLUMBUS ROLLS 3-0 THEY WERE DOWN BY SIX POINTS IN THE THIRD SET, CAME BACK AND WON 25-21 AND 3-0 AGAINST CHRISTIAN. THEY REALLY HAD A NICE RUN HERE.>>THIS TEAM HAS BEEN REALLY RESILIENT. YOU SAW KATE SHANNON PUT THAT ONE UP AND SAID THAT SOME OF THE TEAM MEMBERS, AFTER THEY WENT THROUGH A LOSING STREAK –.>>THEY HAD TO COME TOGETHER AS A TEAM MOSTLY, AND THAT’S WHAT THEY DID IN THAT SEMIFINAL GAME AGAINST UNITY CHRISTIAN AND NOW THEIR BACKS ARE SQUARELY AGAINST THE WALL, DOWN TWO SETS TO NONE AND NOW DOWN BY THEIR LARGEST DEFICIT HERE IN THE THIRD.>>GOOD PASS TO TO THEIR OFFENSE AND TO THE QUICK OFFENSE, JUST LIKE THAT. THAT QUICK PASS REALLY IS EFFECTIVE AGAINST WESTERN CHRISTIAN. THEY’RE NOT ABLE TO MAKE THE ADJUSTMENT THEY NEED TO DO FOR THAT.>>THIS IS SUCH A BIG THING FOR WATERLOO COLUMBUS.>>BECAUSE THEY’RE SO SHORT AND REALLY HAVE TO RUN THAT BACK UP AS TO COMPENSATE FOR THAT BECAUSE THEY’RE JUST SO SHORT, THEY’RE JUST OUT SIZED BY WESTERN CHRISTIAN.>>YEAH, THAT BLOCK RULED OUT. COLUMBUS CATHOLIC FANS NOT HAPPY. 17-11, YOUR SCORE.>>HERE’S FEENSTRA.>>DONE A REALLY NICE JOB.>>TOWARD THE NET TO TIP OVER, DIDN’T WORK VEERBEEK WILL STEP BACK.>>A LITTLE MIXUP THERE WHO WAS ON THE OUTSIDE ATTACKER.>>YEAH, THEY HANDLE THE FREE FALL AND CHRISTIAN RULED LONG. THE WOLFPACK UP THERE WITH AN EAGLE DOWN THE LINE.>>I DON’T THINK THERE WAS A TOUCH. SO THOSE ARE RIGHT THERE FOR COLUMBUS. YOU THINK THEY DID A RUN FOR A FEW POINTS HERE AND GET BACK INTO THE SET.>>AND GOING TO SLEEP ON COVERAGE IN THE BACK ROW. VERY UNUSUAL FOR WESTERN CHRISTIAN AND THEY’RE A NUMBER ONE, TAKING CREDIT FOR THAT ONE. THEY NEED TO CONCENTRATE FOR EVERY POINT.>>AND WATERLOO COLUMBUS GETS THAT BATTLE, MCMANUS YATES 3-POINT GAME.>>UNLESS THE CENTER CAN DO THEIR, THE BACK ROW, CAN STAND THERE AND GET HER HAND UP.>>COLUMBUS ON A BIG RUN HERE AT 4 POINTS. AND MAKE IT 5. WOW. THEY’RE A VERY RESILIENT BUNCH, BUT HOW RESILIENT ARE THEY TODAY? DOWN 2 SETS TO NONE AND I DIDN’T TELL A 2-POINT DEFICIT AND A TIMEOUT WILL BE TAKEN BY WESTERN CHRISTIAN. LET’S GO TO THE HUDDLE OF WATERLOO COLUMBUS CATHOLIC.>>TWO POINTS, YOU TIE IT RIGHT HERE. EVERYBODY IN, LET’S GO. ON 3, 1, 2, 3. DO IT, DO IT, DO IT, LET’S GO.>>SHE’S LOSING HER VOICE IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP STATE GAME. THE 2-POINT CONTEST HERE IN THE THIRD SET.>>THEY’RE SERVING AND QUICK OFFENSIVE ATTACKS TO THE OUTSIDE, THE THREE POSITION THAT’S BEEN VERY EFFECTIVE. AND THIS IS WHAT WE’VE SEEN IN THE ALL-STATE TOURNAMENTS. THEY’VE SURPRISED A LOT OF TEAMS WITH THEIR QUICK OFFENSE.>>SAILORS NEED THIS SET TO KEEP IT ALIVE. AND NOW SINNOTT WILL SERVE.>>WE’LL SEE WHERE WESTERN CHRISTIAN GOES WITH THE BALL HERE.>>AND KNOCKED BACK DOWN.>>A LITTLE BIT OF A TIGHT PASS WHERE YOU REALLY HAVE TO MAKE THAT OFFENSE GO.>>A SERVICE ERROR.>>AND A LITTLE TOO AGGRESSIVE FOR THE SIDELINE.>>AND EIGHT TIES SO FAR.>>ANOTHER SENIOR. THEY DO A LOT OF SUBSTITUTIONS. SHE’S REALLY USING A LOT OF HER PLAYERS TO LEVERAGE THEIR ADVANTAGE THEY HAVE.>>AND THEY WILL KEEP IT ALIVE, KOOI, WINTERFELD.>>IT’S A BLITZ ATTACK THAT’S REALLY EFFECTIVE. THEY DON’T GIVE TIME FOR THE BLOCKER TO GET THERE. THAT’S BEEN REALLY EFFECTIVE HERE IN THIS THIRD SET.>>1-POINT GAME HERE. 18-17.>>COLUMBUS, YOU’VE GOT TO GIVE THEM CREDIT. THEY’RE FIGHTING BACK.>>WINTERFELD, GOOD DIG OUT OF THE BACK.>>VERY QUICK DEFENSIVELY.>>KOOI, BACKED UP TO STOP.>>THAT’S PRETTY MUCH MONEY EVERY TIME SHE GOES BACK THERE. YOU CAN ALMOST SEE THAT ONE COMING.>>ANOTHER SUBSTITUTION. THEY PLAY A LOT OF PLAYERS WITH WESTERN CHRISTIAN. THEY HAVE A BIG BENCH AND USE A LOT OF IT.>>1-POINT GAME AGAIN AT 19-18.>>AND THE LUBARROW COMES BACK IN. THEY’RE PLAYING DEFENSE.>>AND THAT WILL BE A DOUBLE HEAD CALL.>>DIDN’T GO REAL STRONG ON THAT. THAT’S A REPEATED FLAG, TRYING TO SET THE BALL. AND JUST GOT TO GET UP THERE WITH THOSE HANDS.>>NOW, NINE TIMES HERE IN THE SET. CAN WATERLOO COLUMBUS TURN THE TIDE? NO, WINTERFELD AGAIN, COMING UP BIG TIME.>>NUMBER ONE HITTER, THEY ALWAYS GO TO THEIR BIG, STRONG OUTSIDE HITTER. VERY IMPRESSIVE. A VERY COMPETITIVE THIRD SET HERE. COLUMBUS GOT A RHYTHM FOR THEIR OFFENSE.>>AND THIS IS BLOCKED DOWN BY FEENSTRA.>>SHE REALLY DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO PUT THE BALL BEHIND THERE, SO EASY BLOCK FOR FEENSTRA THERE.>>2-POINT LEAD HERE FOR WESTERN CHRISTIAN. NOW SINNOTT FROM THE BACK ROW. AND WATERLOO COLUMBUS CATHOLIC GETS THE POINT.>>IT’S BEEN VERY EFFECTIVE FOR THEM. NICE SET FOR THE BACK ROW THERE, SETTING THE BALL FOR THE BACK ROW SET. SINNOTT, THEIR NUMBER ONE HITTER TOOK THE BALL AWAY. BEAUTIFULS PASS.>>AND A — SHE WAS TRYING TO PASS IT AND GES WHAT, WE’RE TIED UP AT 21.>>IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL PASS. SHE WAS STREAMING OVER THAT PASS AND HANDLED IT.>>FIRST TIME THEY’RE TIED IN THIS SET. WINTERFELD AND THAT’S GOING TO BE THE FLESH IT OUT WESTERN CHRISTIAN MAINTAINS THE LEAD. 22-21.>>THERE’S AN OFFENSIVE MIXTURE GOING FOR CHRISTIAN.>>AND A POINT FOR WINTERFELD.>>SHE IS THEIR NUMBER ONE SERVER AS FAR AS COMING IN. NICE BALL DROPPING. AND ONLY TWO SERVER SEATS FOR –.>>SO THE WOLFPACK JUST TWO POINTS AWAY FROM GETTING YET ANOTHER STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. LET’S GO TO THEIR HUDDLE. .>>WESTERN CHRISTIAN WHO HAS PLAYED IN THE LAST SIX CLASS 2A STATE TITLE GAMES, WINNING IT LAST YEAR, TRYING TO GO BACK TO BACK HERE. NINE TITLES FOR HEAD COACH TAMMI VEERBEEK.>>PLAY ON DEFENSE LIKE YOU’VE NEVER PLAYED BEFORE, SO THEY CAN DEFEND THAT QUICK ATTACK FROM WATERLOO COLUMBUS.>>2-POINT LEAD WESTERN CHRISTIAN HAS THE LEAD.

BEAUTIFUL SERVE.>>TRYING TO KEEP IT ALIVE AND WATERLOO COLUMBUS STAYS IN THIS GAME.>>ANOTHER NICE OFFENSIVE QUICK ATTACK ON THE OUTSIDE AND CUT TO THE LINE HERE.

GO GET THEM, RIGHT NOW, LET’S GO.>>ONE BALL. ONE BALL.>>COLUMBUS CATHOLIC TRYING TO FORCE A FOURTH SET. WESTERN CHRISTIAN TRYING TO CLOSE IT OUT AND GO BACK TO BACK.>>THEY’RE REALLY A SCRAPPY LITTLE TEAM. THEY HAVE NOT QUIT. THEY’RE STILL PLAYING HARD. THEY’RE OUTSIDE AGAINST THEIR OPPONENT, BUT HANGING TOUGH, PLAYING GREAT DEFENSE AND OFFENSIVE TACKLE.>>STILL A CHAMPIONSHIP POINT, WINTERFELD FOR THE FRONT.>>THAT’S FIRE POWER.
