The Skutt Catholic volleyball team came into the District Finals as the two seed and took on fifteenth seeded Columbus Discovers in a win or go home matchup Saturday afternoon.

 

Skutt Catholic began the game with a comfortable lead in the first set as they had a

 

different lineup then they normally put on the floor. Junior Megan Skovsende took on the libero roll in Saturday’s contest. The SkyHawks won the first set 25-15.

 

Columbus was very competitive in the first half of each set, until Skutt Catholic ran away with points. The SkyHawks did a very nice job of getting everyone involved. There were multiple kills from Sophomores Allie Gray, and Lindsay Krause, and Seniors Lily Heyne and Sydney McDermott. The freshmen played a significant roll in the match as well. Skutt Catholic won the set 25-13.

 

Columbus and Skutt Catholic were neck-and-neck in the third set, The Discoverers doing their best to force another set. The SkyHawks were too much for Columbus as they won the third set 25-23.

 

“There was great energy and communication, and the bench was very enthusiastic also we ran new combo plays for hitting. Junior Megan Skovsende said.

 

The SkyHawks will advance to the State Tournament in Lincoln as they open up play Thursday against the Elkhorn Antlers. Skutt Catholic seeks their fourth consecutive state title under head coach Renee Saunders.
