“We came out flat and could not get anything going at all,” L/O head coach Lisa Swenson said. “I think both teams were exhausted (in game five) but we made some simple mistakes.”

Still, Swenson was pleased with the season her team had this year.

“It was a good rebuilding season and I thin a lot of people counted us out,” she said. “It was nice to be back in the conference title game and it was a good year.”

L/O stats: Chanda Riedemann, 17 kills; Becca Bunne, 13 kills; Krista Bunne, 9 kills; Rachel Shaffer, 8 kills; Megan Grant, 42 assists; Kylie Grant, 41 digs; Jessica Jennings, 29 digs
