2. LANCERS CHALLENGE FOR TITLE
St. Pius X was the favorite to win its Class 2 volleyball district. After that, the Lancers were one of the pleasant surprises of the state tournament.
St. Pius became the second Jefferson County team in 15 years - and the sixth since the state tournament started in 1975 - to play in the state championship match. The Lancers ran into perennial power Hermann in the title match, and for the second time in two days they fell to Hermann. St. Pius was overwhelmed by Hermann in the round-robin semifinals 25-8, 25-16, but turned in a much stronger showing in the title match, losing 25-18, 25-20. For Herman it was the fifth state title in the last 10 years. St. Pius finished the year 25-10-3.
The Lancers' postseason run was powered by the hitting of Amelia Held. The sophomore was the kills leader in the Class 2 finals, edging Hermann's Shelby Winkelmann for honors 55-47. Held and Winkelmann were the leading hitters in the metro area during the fall season, with Held finishing with 474 kills and Winkelmann with 472.
In addition to getting a big tournament effort from Held, the Lancers also got a boost from seniors Amanda Held, the Lancers' No. 2 hitter, and Olivia Richardson, the setter.
