The girls’ came into this match after consecutive wins of conference, regionals, and sectionals earning them a spot in the 4A state game. Their first matchup for this championship was against the Barrington Broncos who were ranked third in the mid-suburban conference compared to the Mustangs No. 1 ranking in the DuPage Valley.

Beginning the first set Barrington proved to be a match for Metea as they earned the early lead of 5-3 from their kills and long rallies. The girls, however, fought back with the complete package deal of outside hitter junior Kira Hutson who had both saves and kills in the front, and back row. This game was neck and neck with Metea just trailing behind Barrington tying the score multiple times until the end. The Broncos could not keep up with the girls’ serves from junior outside and right side hitter Annabelle Troy and senior setter Emma Bludgen allowed Metea to pull through with the team working collaboratively to end the game with a score of 25-23.

The second set was all the Mustangs as they earned the first points of the match putting them up 7-2. Senior middle and right side hitter Halle Sullivan and senior middle hitter Jessica William’s kills could not keep up with the defenders of the Broncos giving the Mustangs a lead. This battle at the net seen during this match with an effort from the whole team ended in the Mustangs victory as they ended with a score of 25-13 from a match point made by senior setter Regan Holmer. The Mustangs would earn a spot in the finals for state against Mother McAuley.
