Mayer Lutheran Repeats as Class A Minnesota Volleyball Champions

The top rated Mayer Lutheran Crusaders did not lose to a Class A team all season and breezed to a 3-0 win over Minneota in the title match Saturday in St. Paul.

Scores were 25-19, 25-16, 25-13 in the 64 minute match.

The Crusaders attack was through the roof good with a team hitting percentage of .393 compared to the Vikings .079.

5’10 senior Madi Beck was laser focused with a .615 attack percentage, racking up 17 kills on 26 attempts.  5’8 senior Sophia Heuer hit .414 with 13 kills in 29 swings and 5’10 senior setter Madison Hucky tallied 10 kills with a .409 attack percentage and was a dig away from a triple double.  Hucky had 27 assists and 9 digs.  Heuer had a double double with 19 digs to lead the team.

Mayer Lutheran has nine seniors on this year’s team, they didn’t lose a single set in the State Tournament and lost just 9 sets all year.

There was no let down in efficiency in the match for the Crusaders either with hitting percentages of .351, .342 and .500 in each of the sets.

Mayer Lutheran dominated each phase of the game with 12 blocks compared to one for the Vikings.

Mayer Lutheran’s Beck, Heuer and Hucky were named to the All-Tournament team.

Head Coach Joelle Grimsley’s Crusaders finish their season 32-2 with their only losses to 2A State Champion Maple Lake and 3A Runner-up Eagan.

Minneota had a 29-6 record in 2017 and has just one senior on their team.
