Winning one state title is hard, just ask any of the very good teams that were never able to close the deal. But winning two straight titles is even harder.
Baileyville B&B came into this weekends Class 1A Division II state championship as the defending champs. In Saturday's semifinals they got past a scrappy Weskan team in straight sets 25-13, 25-15.
On the other side of the bracket Argonia scrapped past Wheatland-Grinnell 25-22, 25-21.
In the championship game the Falcons took the first set 25-18. But the Raiders battled back to win set two 26-24.
B&B didn't give up, they came back and won the final set 25-18 to win their second straight state title.
"I'm so proud of the girls, they worked their tails off for that," said Falcons head coach Jessica Koch. "It was shaky at times, but we knew that since we came from such a very strong league that we could bounce back."
Senior Hannah Hasenkamp added that there is more to the Falcons than just volleyball and that has been the key to their success over the past two seasons.
"We're not just at team we're a family," said Hasenkamp. "We all work together we are there for each other. If one person messes up we are there to pick you up off the ground."
In the third place game Wheatland-Grinnell won in straight sets 25-19, 25-22 over Weskan.
