Kenzie Hanson’s service ace sealed the deal in Game 3 as the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans defeated McFarland and won the WIAA Division 2 State Volleyball Championship 25-21, 25-17, 25-23 on Saturday afternoon.
The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans had spotted McFarland a 19-13 lead in Game 3 but rallied to win 25-23 for the state title.
Except for the dominating second game, L-C found itself fighting from behind from the beginning of the match against the McFarland team, who also have the nickname Spartans. McFarland roared out to an 8-2 start but, after a timeout, L-C fought back to tie at 16-16 and eventually won the game.
Luxemburg-Casco had advanced to the title game Friday with a 25-15, 25-22, 25-23 victory over Wisconsin Lutheran.
