After being sick and missing last year’s five-game loss at Hauser, Sarah Stuckwisch didn’t want a repeat occurrence.
Stuckwisch did her part to make sure Class A No. 3 Trinity Lutheran didn’t fall to the Class A No. 9 Jets again. She recorded 20 kills, 10 blocks and three aces to lead the Cougars to a 25-22, 19-25, 14-25, 25-21, 15-13 victory.
“It was super revengeful for me because I was like ‘We’re not losing to this team, not on our home court and not my senior year,’” Stuckwisch said.
Hauser (15-5), which had its eight-match winning streak snapped, led in every game. The Jets were up 4-1 in both Games 4 and 5.
“We just gave some unforced errors away,” Hauser coach Jeff Case said. “What really gets me is Game 1. We’re up 19-15, and we have a serve error, and that turned into seven points for them. We gave that Game 1 away, so if we’d have won that, we’d have won in three.”
Game 5 was tied at 8 before Trinity (16-2) took a two-point lead.
