For the third straight season, Washington captured the championship of the Hermann Volleyball Tournament by defeating Borgia in the finals.

Playing at Hermann High School on Thursday, Sept. 21, the Blue Jays knocked off Borgia, 25-21, 11-25, 25-12 in the championship match.

Washington advanced to the championship match by defeating Hermann in the semifinals, 25-20, 22-25, 25-19.

“It’s such a good tournament. Borgia is exceptionally tough this year and getting through Hermann in the semifinals was no cakewalk,” said Washington Head Coach Kym Blankenship. “There’s a good group of players at this tournament and it’s always challenging. It means something to win it.”

The Lady Jays won their pool on Monday, Sept. 18, with wins over Union, Pacific and New Haven.

Overall, the Lady Jays went 5-0 in the tournament.

“It means so much to win this tournament,” said Washington senior libero Hannah Struckhoff. “Being a senior, this is one of the things we were looking at the most. We wanted to win this three years in a row. It’s exciting to do it. This is how we wanted it to be.”

Both of Washington’s matches on the final night went to a third and deciding game. Blocking was the key in the win over Borgia.

“We knew we had to come out strong in the third game,” Struckhoff said. “We really focused on blocking, because that was a big reason why we lost the second game. Once we adjusted our blocking, that’s what helped us win the third game.”

“The second game was hard on us because we had a hard time adjusting to their offense. Once our block was able to key in on that in the third game, things turned around for us. We talked about some blocking strategies and the girls responded,” Blankenship said. “The girls decided that we’ve been here all night and we were just going to do what we do and play our game. I told them let’s put it all out there and if we have to drag ourselves out of this gym because we gave it everything we had, then that’s what we’ll do win or lose.”
