With the Seymour volleyball team having a lot of experience coming back this season, the Owls had high aspirations of reaching the state title game.
However, their journey ended at the hands of Cathedral in a hard-fought five-setter in Saturday’s Class 4A Seymour Semistate semifinals.
Tenth-ranked Cathedral won the first set 25-21, but No. 9 Seymour won the second 25-19.
Cathedral bounced back with a 25-20 win in the third set, and Seymour took care of business in the fourth set, 25-17. In the deciding fifth set, Cathedral claimed the 15-12 win.
“Disappointed in the loss, for sure, but pleased with the great season we had,” Owls coach Angie Lucas said. “We have a lot of young kids on the floor and are graduating one senior.”
The Owls held a 2-1 lead in the third set, but the Irish outscored the Owls 12-7 and never looked back. The closest the Owls got was 17-15.
Seymour held a 14-13 lead in the fourth set before reeling off three straight points to take the lead for good. Hayden Dailey knocked down a kill for a 20-15 lead. She had two more to make it 22-17, and Chandler Clark served the final four points of the match.
