In the WIAA Division II Volleyball State Championship Saturday afternoon, the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans lost to the Lakeside Lutheran Warriors three games to two on 96.7 FM WBDK. The Spartans started out fast claiming games one and two 25-19 and 25-13. Lakeside Lutheran responded by taking the next three games 25-22, 25-23 and 15-10 respectively.
The Spartans were led by Cassie Schiltz with 16 kills while Alexis Dorner added 13 kills and 5 blocks. Megan Cannon had a great floor game with 47 assists and 12 digs. Although the Spartans had 12 team blocks, they could not stop Amber Rowoldt who came on strong late finishing with 28 kills for the Warriors. Luxemburg-Casco finished an incredibly successful season 41-9 and take home the first-ever State Volleyall Runner-up trophy.
An emotional Coach Jeff Frey thanked the girls for their great effort and the L-C community support which packed the Resch Center both days of the tournament during his post game comments.
