Holy Angels Dominates VB Classic

The Holy Angels Volleyball Classic has been described by some as the area’s private middle school volleyball championship. The seventh annual tournament featured seventh and eighth grade teams from St. Mary, St. Frances Cabrini, Holy Angels, St. John, Holy Trinity (Kewaskum), St. Kilian (Hartford), and St. Anthony (Menomonee Falls)

The championship matches took on the feel of the traditional West Bend East vs. West matchups as Holy Angels-White met Holy Angels-Blue for the title in both the seventh and eighth grade brackets. Holy Angels teams had a history of success winning ten championships in the first six years of the tournament

At the seventh grade level, HA-White reached the finals by defeating Holy Trinity, 15-4, 15-4, 15-17; and St. Anthony, 15-10, 15-13, 15-1. HA-Blue advanced by downing St. Kilian, 15-2, 15-3, 15-8; and St. John, 15-11, 15-7, 15-6. HA-Blue swept HA-White for the title, 15-7, 15-4, 15-5

In other seventh grade final round action: St. John came back to defeat St. Anthony for third place, 9-15, 15-12, 15-6. Cabrini took fourth place honors by topping Holy Trinity 15-6, 15-5, 15-9. St. Mary nipped St. Kilian in the seventh place match, 15-12, 13-15, 15-12.

The eighth grade final was also an all-HA matchup with HA-White earning a shot at the title by beating St. Kilian, 15-6, 15-7, 9-15; and edging Cabrini 15-13, 16-14, 12-15. HA-Blue reached the championship match with wins over Holy Trinity, 15-1, 15-4, 13-15; and St. Anthony, 15-3, 15-13, 13-15. In the title match, HA-White avenged two earlier losses during the season to come out on top with a 15-7, 15-4, 15-11 victory over HA-Blue.

St. Anthony took home third place honors with a comeback win over Cabrini, 15-9, 9-15, 15-9. St. John also needed three games to defeat St. Mary for fourth place, 3-15, 15-7, 15-9. Holy Trinity topped St. Kilian, 15-9, 15-10, 10-15, for seventh place in the eighth grade bracket.

Many of the top players in this year’s tourney will likely attend one of the West Bend High Schools. If history repeats itself, the future looks bright for the Sun and Spartan volleyball programs.
