Girls Varsity Volleyball · Lady Knights Volleyball 2018-2019 Season Wrap-Up

The Lady Knights ended the season with numerous new school records. They won the NSAA Class D-1 State Title, which is the first female state title in school history. Seniors Lexie Langley, Allison Dieckmann, and Haley Kempf led the team to victory sweeping the entire tournament. Each team they faced, they won in three sets, clinching the state title.  They ranked above the national average in blocks, attacks, digs, and serve receives. Langley ended her season with 385 kills and Kempf behind her with 271. In ace serves, Langley also placed first with 61 and Dieckmann behind her with 33. Sophomore Lauren Baker led the team in blocks with 71 total and 18 solo blocks. Junior Allie DeGroff led the team in digs with 325 and Langley behind her with 306. Dieckmann had a season-high of 977 assists on the court.

Coach Sue Wewel and Kim Dieckmann both agreed that this season was full of records and season-highs, but their favorite part was seeing the team dynamic on and off the court. These girls proved themselves to be champions by working hard at practice daily, playing for each other and not themselves, and taking each game one at a time. Their focus always remained on state throughout the season; however, they approached each game with a singular focus of winning that match.
