The score might have been 3-0 in favor of Williamston but it was a much different match than when the two teams met the first time several weeks ago. Then Lansing Catholic did not play their typical strong defense. The time in the battle for the White Division Championship, the Cougars played stong defense and led late in both of the first two games but could not hold off the hard charging Hornets of Williamston. Using great sets and going to the strenghts of their strong outside hitters and the quick set on the inside, Williamston was able to mount late charges in both games one and two to put the Cougars into a deep hole.
While the Cougars did not win the White Divison, they did finish 8-2 in the league. With MHSAA districts coming next week, Lansing Catholic may have to go through Williamston to make the district finals. Come on over to LCHS next Thursday at 7pm to see if the rematch will take place!
