Class a, district 9 Lancers play tough, but fall to Crusaders
Canterbury earned a district title three-peat with its 25-17, 25-23, 26-24 victory in the A-9 final against Cambridge.
The Crusaders (21-5) finish the season undefeated in district play.
"The girls played great," Canterbury coach John Milkovich said. "Really probably the cleanest they've played in a while."
Cambridge took Canterbury to five games during the regular season, but the Crusaders were able to finish off similarly close games this time around to sweep.
"We did what we needed to do," Milkovich said. "Cambridge was solid. They didn't really give us anything. We had to earn it."
Mansie Hough led Canterbury with 19 kills and 12 digs. She also added three blocks. Megan Burgess was everywhere for the Crusaders, recording seven kills, seven digs, five blocks and three aces. Canterbury setters Alexis Conway and Sam Burgess each finished with 17 assists.
