Orioles outlast Carmel, crowned champions

(Continued)

MUNCIE —

“On the inside all of us were like ‘What are we doing?’ but to each other we were like ‘Let’s just be calm, let’s just be calm,’” Avon’s Beth Prince said of the final set. “That entire game we kept our composure and that’s what’s important.”

The Greyhounds started with a 1-0 lead but Avon never trailed after that, scoring the last four points after leading 11-10 to win the championship.

“I’ve said it before and even made teams tighten up because of it, but the last game is the hardest to win,” McQueen said. “It got frantic at times, but for the most part I felt like we went for it there and that was so huge.”

Avon served the ball really well all night as Brooke Peters and Kayla Springer each recorded two aces and Rebekah Strange and Rachel Griffin served 24 and 23 points, respectively without an error.

The contest was one for the record books, literally, as the Orioles shattered several Class 4A individual five-set state championship marks.

Prince set the record for most kills (24), Griffin broke the assist mark (54), and Shelby Connors set two records on the night with block assists (9) and total blocks (9). Prince missed the kill attempts by three with 62 on the night.

All of those marks were set in 2007, but according to Connors those things really don’t matter to the team or individuals.

“I think we do not even worry about (records),” she said. “If we beat it, then cool, we beat it. If not, then that’s fine, too.”

Prince agreed with Connors and heaped the praise on her teammates.

“That’s amazing and I don’t feel like I (set a record) but I couldn’t have done it without my girls” she said. “They are everything and I’m glad, but I’m giving it all to my team.”
