2016 Division 1A Volleyball Championship to The Eagles
Four very solid teams entered the final four of the Division 1A volleyball championship with aspirations of taking home the championship hardware. In the first semi-final, a boisterous WISH crowd propelled the Owls to a victory over New West in two sets. In the second semi-final, Wilders Prep defeated The City School in two sets as well behind a very supportive crowd as well.
Earbuds were a must as both WISH and Wilders Prep played a spirited match with several extended rallies that caused many a man, woman and child to have ringing ears and sore hands. Both teams played hard and showed incredible athleticism and determination. Wilders went on a hot serving streak and that carried them to a first set victory 25-22. In the second set, Wilders continued with some great serves to jump to an early lead but WISH got refocused after a timeout and went on a run of their own to take a 21-16 lead. The Lady Eagles did not falter but made some key hits and then their serving took over again to win the second set 25-23 for the Division 1A Championship.
