The 43rd MSHSAA Girls Volleyball Championships were held this weekend at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau.
Northland Christian capped off back-to-back state titles with a two set sweep over New Haven to claim the Class 1 title. St. Pius X/Festus overcame a shaky second set to take the Class 2 title holding off Strafford in the tie-breaking set. Helias Catholic returns to the top of Class 3 winning their second title in three years and St. Joseph’s Academy swept Ozark 2-0 to win the Class 4 title. It was a memorable run for St. Joe, which ended Lafayette Wildwood’s chances for a 7th straight state title earlier in the tournament. St. Joe returns to the top after a six year absence.
