BOTH STARTERS AND THE ENTIRE TEAM ANNOUNCED TO EVERYONE IN ATTENDANCE. BARB, WHAT ARE THE ANKENY KEYS. THE REASON THEY WON THE SEMIFINAL MATCH. WAS THE STRONG MIDDLE ATTACK. IT DOMINATED AT THE END OF THE MATCH IN THE SEMIS. THEN THEY NEED TO BLOCK FOR POINTS. CEDAR FALLS IS A GREAT DEFENSIVE TEAM. IF THEY COULD NOT GET CEDAR FALLS GET THE BALL IT WILL BE GOOD FOR CENTENNIAL. THE TIGERS THEY’RE UNDEFEATED. WHAT DO THEY NEED TO DO TO FINISH IT AND WIN A STATE TITLE. THEY PLAY REALLY, REALLY GOOD DEFENSE. THEY’RE GOING TO SEE SOME AMAZING OFFENSE. ANYTIME THEY CAN GET ANY TOUCHES THAT WOULD BE BETTER AND SEND THE BALL BACK TO ANKENY CENTENNIAL. AND THEY CAN KIND OF GUIDE WHERE THEY WANT THE OFFENSE TO COME FROM.>>THEY ENDED UP SWEEPING THEIR TWO OPPONENTS. WE’LL SEE HOW THEY START. A FULL-DAY OF COVERAGE HERE ON IOWA PUBLIC TELEVISION, AND THE IOWA HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS IS OFFICIALLY UNDER WAY.>>SHE KNEW SHE HAD AN ACE RIGHT AWAY. SHE SERVED THAT BALL AND SHE KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE AN ACE. KENNA SAUER. GOING TO MISSOURI NEXT YEAR. AND TIGERS ARE IN THE NET. 2 COSTLY ERRORS FOR THE TIGERS OF CEDAR FALLS. NOW IT’S 2-0 IN FAVOR OF ANKENY CENTENNIAL. CLOSE START YESTERDAY FOR CEDAR FALLS AGAINST NUMBER 5 LINDMAR. SLOW START HERE IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH. HERE’S THE SET TO THE OUTSIDE. BROWN HAD TO ADJUST. 3-0 CENTENNIAL.>>WELL, AGAIN THIS ISN’T A TIME FOR CEDAR FALLS TO WORRY TOO MUCH. THEY’VE BEEN IN THIS SITUATION. IT’S ONLY THREE POINTS. THEY NEED TO FIGHT OUT HERE.>>A SIDE OUT WOULD BE BIG. A BLOCK AT THE NET. TIGERS GET IT BACK. NOW A WHISTLE UNDER THE NET WAS BROWN AND CENTENNIAL LOOKING REAL CONFIDENT UP 4-0 AND SAUER SERVING BULLETS OVER THE NET.>>THEY ABSOLUTELY SHOULD FEEL CONFIDENT BECAUSE THEY BEAT LAST YEAR’S RUNNER-UP IN THE SEMIFINALS.>>TIGERS ARE ON THE BOARD. YOU KNEW IT WOULD HAPPEN SOONER OR LATER. NOW THEY HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF DEFICIT, A LITTLE BIT OF A HOLE TO DIG OUT. NOW IT’S TIME FOR CEDAR FALLS TO GET SERVING OFFENSIVELY. TIGERS IN RED. ANKENY CENTENNIAL IN THE WHITE TOPS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR TV SCREEN. THE TIGERS HANDLE IT DEFENSIVELY. YATES HAS BEEN HUGE FOR CEDAR FALLS THIS YEAR.>>SO IN THE OPEN WE TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ANKENY CENTENNIAL’S MIDDLE BUT YATES DOES A REALLY NICE JOB FOR CEDAR FALLS, AND WHEN YATES IS OFF. HULSTEIN IS IN.>>ANOTHER NICE SERVE BY WEDGBURY A SOPHOMORE SPECIALIST FOR CEDAR FALLS. IN THE NET AGAIN. THAT’S THE THIRD TIME. SO THREE OF THE FIVE CENTENNIAL POINTS HAVE BEEN IN THE NET. WE SHOULD LET EVERYBODY CEDAR FALLS HAS BEEN IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH. HOWEVER THESE PLAYERS HAVEN’T BEEN. SO EVEN THOUGH THE TEAM HAS BEEN THERE AND THEY’VE BEEN SITTING ON THE BENCH. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THESE PLAYERS, EVEN THOUGH IT’S THE SAME TEAM, SHALL ARE IN THE MATCH. IT’S A BIG TIME.>>LAST YEAR CENTENNIAL GRADUATED SIX SENIORS OFF OF THIS TEAM. RIGHT NOW IT’S 5-3. MORE SERVES. THIS TIME IT’S EMERSON GREEN. IT’S ROBINSON WITH THE BEST 50 VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS IN THE STATE OF IOWA. ROBINSON MADE THAT LIST.>>SHE’S GOING TO THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN FOR COLLEGE. THAT HIT WAS AGAINST A TRIPLE BLOCK. PRETTY IMPRESSIVE. YOU DON’T PUT FOUR PLAYERS AGAINST THE BLOCK.>>YOU CAN’T.>>BROWN AGAIN WITH THE KILL. SHE HAS THREE OF THE FOUR TIGERS POINTS. NOW SHE GOES BACK BEHIND THE SERVICE LINE. IT IS AN ACE. BROWN WITH THREE KILLS AND AN ACE TRYING TO CARRY THE TIGERS TO THEIR FIRST LEAD HERE IN THE OPENING SET.>>YOU CAN SEE EVERYBODY THOUGHT SOMEONE ELSE WAS GOING TO TAKE IT. IT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF MISCOMMUNICATION. CENTENNIAL, GOOD PASS. THE SET WAS OFF. IT’S OUT-OF-BOUNDS. NOT MANY OPTIONS THERE. WE’RE ALL TIED UP. VOLLEYBALL IS A GAME OF MOMENTUM. RIGHT NOW CEDAR FALLS HAS THE MOMENTUM. ALL OF THESE PLAYERS THERE ARE GOING TO BE RUNS. SOMETIMES YOU GIVE A FEW RUNS, AND SOMETIMES YOU MAKE A FEW RUNS. IT GOES BACK AND FORTH.>>7-6 ANKENY CENTENNIAL WITH THE POINT. AND HERE’S ARI WINTERS, A SENIOR GOING TO THE UNIVERSITY OF DENVER TO PLAY VOLLEYBALL NEXT YEAR.>>I REMEMBER WHEN SHE WAS A YOUNG FRESHMAN PLAYING.>>AND SHE’S GOT ATHLETICS IN HER BACKGROUND. HER DAD PLAYED BASKETBALL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA. HER SISTER IS NOW PLAYING AT CREIGHTON IS AND BLOWING THINGS OPEN AT CREIGHTON. THEY HAVE A GREAT PROGRAM AND SHE’S WHY.>>7-7. THAT WAS A DANGEROUS SERVE. AND NOW QUICK BATTLE ABOVE THE NET. SOME HOW, SOME WAY IT GOT THROUGH. LET’S SEE HOW THE BALL SQUEAKED THROUGH THAT. WELL THE BALL IS THERE BUT THE HANDS AREN’T STRONG. YOU NEED TO TIGHTEN FROM YOUR SHOULDERS TO THE WRIST SO THEY’RE LIKE A STIFF BOARD.>>THAT TIME THE BLOCK WAS THERE. IT WASN’T TALL ENOUGH FOR 6’1″ SENIOR OUTSIDE KENNA SAUER SOARED ABOVE THE BLOCK. HERE’S DEVYN ROBINSON. NICE PASS. QUICK SET MIDDLE. IT’S TEXTBOOK. WHY DON’T THEY DO THAT EVERY TIME.>>OH, I WISH THEY WOULD.>>HOWEVER, FOR MIDDLES TO RUN THAT QUICK YOU HAVE TO HAVE A QUICK PASS AND HITTER HAS BEEN IN GOOD POSITION AND THE SETTER HAS TO GET HER IN POSITION. IT’S EASIER THAN IT LOOKS.>>TWO CONTACTS CHARGED AGAINST CENTENNIAL.>>HARDER THAN IT LOOKS. IT LOOKS EASY. IT’S NOT THAT EASY.>>NOTHING LOOKS EASY OUT HERE TODAY.>>CAN’T DO ANYTHING WHAT THESE STUDENT ATHLETES ARE DOING ON THE COURT.>>10-8. AND THEY HAVE SUCCESSFULLY CLIMBED OUT OF IT. TO THE OUTSIDE, LITTLE TIP. AND CENTENNIAL HAS THE OPTION. IT’S ON THE LINE. WE PLAY ON.>>THAT’S THE SCRAPPY DEFENSE WE WERE TALKING ABOUT EARLIER.>>MEGAN LIVELY. 6’3″ MIDDLE BLOCKER. SHE’S GOING TO CENTRAL FLORIDA NEXT YEAR. SHE’S 6’3″. WHEN YOU ADD THE ARMS SHE CAN GET UP. A DOUBLE BLOCK WAS SET UP. SHE CUTBACK TO COMPLETELY MISS WHERE THE BLOCK WAS SET. CENTENNIAL HAS IT. AND THEY GET THE POINT. THEY’RE DEFENSIVE HULSTEIN FOR CEDAR FALLS. IT WAS COMING JUST A BIT TOO HOT OFF THE HANDS AND RICOCHETS OUT-OF-BOUNDS.>>SO WE CAN TALK ABOUT HULSTEIN’S ARMS. THEY NEED TO BE PUSHED OVER THE NET. YOUR HANDS NEED TO BE ON THE OTHER TEAM’S SIDE OF THE NET IN ORDER FOR IT TO BE A GREAT BLOCK.>>HULSTEIN TEXTBOOK BLOCK THERE. AND DOWN THE LINE FOR GRAVES.>>THAT’S A REALLY TOUGH BALL TO DIG. WHEN IT’S COMING STRAIGHT AT THE LINE AT YOU, IT’S SUPER FAST. YOU HAVE TO REACT QUICKLY. AT LEAST SHE GOT A TOUCH ON IT. BACK SET. RULED OUT-OF-BOUNDS OFF THE SLIDE. WE’RE SEEING SOME PRETTY VOLLEYBALL HERE IN THIS 5A MATCHUP. THE GREEN DID A NICE JOB OF GETTING THE MIDDLE BLOCKER TO JUMP WITH HER. SO HULSTEIN WAS ABLE TO GET A SINGLE BLOCK. KNOTTED UP AT 11-11.>>THE POWER THAT CENTENNIAL BRINGS ON EACH AND EVERY ATTACK, IT’S RELENTNESS. IT NEEDS TO BE IN THE STATE FINALS. YOU CAN’T WIN WITH TIPS. YOU NEED TO KEEP SWINGING AND PLAY YOUR GAME.>>BROWN WITH KILL NUMBER 4 AND I HAVE A FEELING THIS IS GOING TO GO DOWN TO THE WIRE IN THE FIRST SET. THEY’RE JUST TRADING POINTS. I LIKE BROWN’S REACTION.>>IT LOOKS LIKE IT HURT HER FEET.>>HAVING FUN. A CHAMPION HAVE BEEN CROWNED SOME TIME IN THE NEXT TWO HOURS.>>BACK SET. ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF HITTING. GOT TO GIVE CREDIT TO THE SETTER AS WELL. THERE’S BEEN GOOD PASSES. NICE SETS AND STRONG ATTACKS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE NET FOR CEDAR FALLS AND CENTENNIAL.>>SO WHEN YOU’RE AGAINST A SINGLE BLOCKER YOU’RE GOING TO WIN THE POINT MORE TIMES THAN YOU DON’T.>>MORGAN THE SETTER FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL. BROWN AGAIN CELEBRATES.>>BROWN HAS COME TO PLAY THIS MORNING.>>THE INTERESTING THING SHE DID HAVE CONSTANTLY MISTAKES EARLY ON WITH BEING IN THE NET. SHE HAS DEFINITELY DROPPED THE ENERGY AND PERFORMANCE SINCE THEN.>>THE OTHER THING THE TWO MATCHES EARLIER THIS WEEK SHE WASN’T THE IMPACT PLAYER FOR THE TIGERS AND SHE’S TURNING INTO THAT TODAY.>>ASHLEY SHILDROTH SHE’S A NICE PIECE OF THIS TIGER PUZZLE.>>YOU KNOW I LOVE A LEFTY ON THE RIGHT SIDE. IN THE SEMIFINAL MATCH THEY WERE ABLE TO GET HER AGAINST THE SINGLE BLOCK SEVERAL TIMES.>>THAT TIME THE TIP WORKED TO PERFECTION. EVERYONE WAS READY FOR ROBINSON TO LAY THE HAMMER DOWN.>>I’D BE AFRAID OF HER HITTING AT ME TOO. SHE’S A GUN. THAT BALL SHE CAN BOUNCE IT IN FRONT OF 10-FOOT LINE AND IT’S WITH AUTHORITY. SHE IS AMAZING.>>CHAMPIONSHIP THERE. BROWN HAS MORE THAN ONE OPTION. THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT. YOU WANT TO BE WELL-ROUNDED. YOU WANT THE TEAM TO THINK YOU’RE GOING TO HAMMER, HAMMER, HAMMER, AND THEN YOU TIP IT AND THEN THEY’RE BACK ON THEIR HEELS. ANOTHER SERVICE ACE FOR BROWN. THE M.V.P. FOR THE FIRST SET IT’S GOT TO BE BROWN. SHE’S DEFINITELY MADE THE MOST IMPACT. WE’RE PAST THE HALFWAY POINT OF THIS FIRST SET. IT’S BEEN ABOUT AS TIGHT AS IT COULD POSSIBLY BE IN THE OPENING SET. HERE’S A LOOK AT THE REPLAY. NICE SWING BY WINTERS. YOU CAN SEE THE MIDDLE BLOCKER DIDN’T MAKE IT. WINTERS WAS ABLE TO SWING THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE BLOCK. A ONE-HANDED SAVE FOR CENTENNIAL. OUTSIDE THE LEFTY. WAS THERE A TOUCH? NO, THERE WAS NOT. POINT ANKENY CENTENNIAL. WITH GREEN GETTING A SINGLE BLOCK FROM SHILDROTH. AND SHILDROTH NEEDS TO PUT THAT BALL AWAY.>>SHE DISGUISES IT SO WELL. EMERSON GREEN.>>AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHY MIDDLE BLOCKERS GO LATE. SO ROBINSON IS LATE HERE BUT SHE STILL GOES. SHE’S HIGH ENOUGH. SHE SHOVES IT BACK ON THE TIGER SIDE. IT’S NUMBER 1 CEDAR FALLS AGAINST NUMBER 2 CENTENNIAL HERE IN THE CLASS 5A OPENING SET. LESSON COUPLE OF THING. A, WE’RE GOING TO LEAVE OUR RIGHT BACK UP FOR TIP. THEY’RE TIPPING. YOU TAKE AWAY THAT HARD LINE SHOT. BOTH AND CALEA. THERE’S NOTHING OVER THERE WE CANNOT STOP. WE PLAY OUR GAME AND WE WIN THIS.>>HAVING SHE SAID THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT. THERE’S NOTHING ON THAT SIDE OF THE NET WE CAN’T STOP. WHEN YOU KNOW YOU’RE GOING UP AGAINST THE CHAMPION. YOU KNOW YOU’RE UP AGAINST A TEAM THAT’S 46 AND 0. I THINK ANKENY CENTENNIAL KNOWS THEY CAN BEAT CEDAR FALLS HERE TODAY. THEY ABSOLUTELY KNOW THAT. EVEN THEY LOST TO THEM EARLY IN THE SEASON. ANKENY CENTENNIAL HAS LOADS OF CONFIDENCE AFTER THE TOURNAMENT THEY’VE HAD HERE THIS WEEK. THE RUN CONTINUES FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL.>>THEY ARE ON A RUN OF FIVE. THIS WOULD BE SIX. THAT IS YATES SHUTTING THE DOOR ON THAT ONE. TRAILING BY TWO. YATES HAS TWO KILLS. HASN’T BEEN SET AS OFTEN AS SHE WAS IN LINDMAR YESTERDAY. YOU HAVE TO HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOUR PASSING AND YOUR HITTER TO SHOVE THAT QUICK SET TO THE MIDDLE BLOCKER.>>THAT IS KILL KILL NUMBER FOUR FOR ROBINSON. THE TEAM LEAD. CEDAR FALLS IN RED. AND ANKENY CENTENNIAL IN WHITE. NO ONE HOME IN THE BACK CORNER. AND CENTENNIAL IS PLAYING AT A DIFFERENT LEVEL IN THE LAST FIVE-MINUTE. CEDAR FALLS PLAYS A PERIMETER DEFENSE. SO IT LEAVES THE CORNERS WIDE OPEN. SHE WENT OVER THE BLOCK FOR THAT. EVEN IF SHE HADN’T GONE OVER THE BLOCK IT WOULD HAVE GONE IN THE CORNER. THAT WAS A GREAT SPOT. BATTLE AT THE NET. ATTACK FROM BROWN AND TOO HARD. AND ANKENY CENTENNIAL INCHING CLOSER AND CLOSER FROM TAKING THIS OPENING SET. THEY LEAD BY 5. LET’S LISTEN OF THE HUDDLE OF THE CEDAR FALLS MATTHEW JOHNSON. CONTROL. WE CAN CONTROL OUR SERVE RECEIVE. WE’RE RUSHING OURSELVES ON THE PASSES. THE OTHER THING WE HAVE TO STAY IN ON IT. LIKE WE’RE RUSHING — IT’S LEAVING TOO MUCH COURT OVER HERE. TAKE A LITTLE COURT AWAY. SO AUERBACH ROW CAN READ AND REACT. YOU’VE GOT TO SET IT AND GO STRAIGHT UP. HEY WE’RE STILL PLAYING. 22-17. LET’S GO. WE REALLY RECEIVE ALL OF OUR HEAD COACHES ALLOWING US TO PUT WIRELESS MICROPHONES ON THEM. SO YOU CAN LISTEN IN TO THE STRATEGY. THE COACHES ARE REALLY GOOD. THEY KNOW HOW TO MOTIVATE THEIR TEAM. WHEN HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE BLOCKING THE FRONT ROW IS BLOCKED SETS UP THE BACK ROW DEFENSE. WHAT DO YOU DO DEFENSIVELY TO STOP HER. SEVEN, ROBINSON. WISCONSIN IS GETTING A GOOD ONE NEXT YEAR.>>THEY REALLY ARE. SHE IS SOMETHING. JUMPING OUT OF THE GYM. A 6-POINT LEAD. MAKE IT 7. IT’S SET POINT ANKENY CENTENNIAL. SHE’S FROM THE SERVICE LINE. THIS IS THE FIFTH POINT IN A ROW SHE’S SERVED. CEDAR FALLS HAS ONLY LOST TWO SETS ALL YEAR. THEY’RE UNDEFEATED IN MATCHES. THEY ONLY LOST TWO SETS ALL YEAR. THEY’RE ON THE BRINK OF LOSING THEIR THIRD SET. BOTH OF THE SETS THEY’VE SET HAVE BEEN TOWARDS THE END OF THE SEASON TOO.>>SET POINT FOR CENTENNIAL. GOOD, UP THERE BY GRAVES. BROWN WHO’S WORKING ON SIX KILLS SETS IT OVER. AND ANKENY CENTENNIAL GOES UP 1-0 WITH A 25-18 VICTORY IN THE OPENING SET. THEY STARTED STRONG. THEY FINISHED STRONG. AND THEY DEFEAT CEDAR FALLS BUT WE’RE A LONG WAY FROM OVER HERE IN THIS 5A MATCHUP. THE CROWD IS LOVING IT. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE LAST POINT BARB. THAT WAS A GREAT UP BY HAYES. CENTENNIAL LEADS IT 1-0. WE’LL BE BACK WITH MORE.>>25-18 ANKENY CENTENNIAL THE STATEMENT IN THE OPENING SET. CEDAR FALLS THEY’RE DOWN. BUT THEY’RE NOT OUT OF IT. ERIC BRALEY AND BARB RANDALL. CEDAR FALLS HAS BEEN SO GOOD THIS YEAR. REALLY A VERY EFFICIENT ATTACK FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL HITTING .382. THAT’S A STARK CONTRAST. AND CEDAR FALLS NEEDS TO PICK UP THEIR DEFENSE TO OFFSET THAT.>>THE LEADERS IN THAT FIRST SET FOR CEDAR FALLS. SIX KILLS FOR AKACIA BROWN. SHE HIT .333. HULSTEIN HAD TWO. YATES HAD TWO. SOMEONE ELSE NEEDS TO GET A COUPLE MORE TO HELP BROWN AND HER OFFENSE. FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL GREAT BALANCE. ROBINSON FINISHED WITH SIX KILLS ON SEVEN ATTACKS HITTING A SIZZLING .714 ATTACK PERCENTAGE. FOUR KILLS FOR SAUER HITTING .400. GOOD DEFENSE WITH 16 DIGS FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL. WELL, CENTENNIAL NEEDS TO WIN TWO MORE SETS TO WIN THE MATCH. THEY GET THE FIRST POINT OFF A NET VIOLATION. IF I’M MATTHEW JOHNSON IT’S A TOUGH TEAM. THEY NEED TO CONTROL THEMSELVES AND NOT PUSH TOO HARD. GO UP AND PLAY AND PLAY THE WAY YOU KNOW HOW TO PLAY. ONE OF THE LOSSES COMING TO CEDAR FALLS. GREAT JOB BY HULSTEIN HERE GIVING THE TIGERS THE LEAD EARLY ON IN THE SECOND SET. HULSTEIN IS A LITTLE UNDERSIZED FOR A MIDDLE. SHE’S 5’11”. SHE’S DOING A GREAT JOB OF HITTING THE ARMPIT AREA. AND THEN SHE FIRES UP THE TEAM. HAVING HER DO WELL IS GOOD FOR THE TIGERS. TAKE A LOOK. 9th PASS. GREENBACKS UP AND GIVES A QUICK SET. YATES FINISHES THE JOB WITH HER THIRD KILL. 2-1 CEDAR FALLS. BLOCKED BACK. BUT THEY’RE GOING TO CALL A LIFT. THAT’S BECAUSE YATES WERE TOO FAR BEHIND HER HEAD. WHEN SHE TOUCHED THE BALSHE KIND OF CAUGHT THE BALL IT’S CALLED A CARRY. EMERSON GREEN AFTER THE FINAL WIN OVER LINDMAR, SHE SAID WE’RE JUST SO EXCITED. WE UNDERSTAND IF ONE POINT DOESN’T GO OUR WAY WE HAVE TO KEEP FIGHTING. WELL THE OPENING SET DIDN’T GO THEIR WAY. THEY HAVEN’T HAD MANY SITUATIONS WHERE THEY’VE HAD TO COME BEHIND. ROBINSON DOES ANANIAS JOB OF INSIDE-OUT SWING AGAINST THE HITTER.>>CEDAR FALLS IN THE SEMIFINAL HAD A VERY BALANCED ATTACK. YATES HAD 16 KILLS. BROWN HAD 10. HULSTEIN NINE. SHILDROTH WITH SEVEN. WHO’S GOING TO PLAY BASKETBALL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF THE NORTHERN IOWA IN TWO YEARS. SHE’S JUST A JUNIOR. HER BROTHER AJ PLAYING FOR THE UNI. THE GREEN FAMILY CERTAINLY DOES AS WELL. 4-3 ANKENY CENTENNIAL ON TOP. AND ATTACK HERE. THAT WAS CLOSE. BUT SMART DECISION BY THE BACK ROW OF CENTENNIAL TO LET THAT ONE SLIDE BY.>>THAT ONE SHE’S OVER ON TOP OF THE BALL SO THE BALL IS GOING TO GO DOWN. SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE’S DOING. THE APPROACH SPOT ON. NOW LET’S WATCH HER SERVE AND HOW SHE ATTACKS THE BALL ALL THE WAY BACK BEHIND THE SERVICE LINE.>>5-4. 6-4. SHE’S A NICE PIECE OF THIS PUZZLE HERE. WHAT MADE THAT PLAY SO GOOD WAS THE QUICK SET. SAUER WAS ABLE TO HIT BETWEEN THE BLOCKERS BECAUSE THERE WERE 10 FEET BETWEEN THEM. YATES WITH THE KILL. SHE’S GOING TO PLAY VOLLEYBALL AT DAYTON. #11 IS GOING TO PLAY AT ARKANSAS SOUTH. WINTERS TO DENVER. ROBINSON WISCONSIN. AND SAUER TO MISSOURI. SO A LOT OF PLAYERS WHO’RE PLAYING RIGHT NOW IN THE 5A CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH WILL CONTINUE PLAYING VOLLEYBALL AT THE NEXT LEVEL NEXT YEAR. THAT IS HUGE. THAT’S WHY THESE TEAMS ARE HERE. BECAUSE THEY HAVE SO MANY PLAYERS THAT MAKE GREAT CONTRIBUTIONS TO THEIR TEAMS. BUT THE DEFENSE NEVER KNOWS WHO THE BALL IS GOING TO. THE ATTACK DOWN THAT FAR LINE LANDED RIGHT ON THE LINE. IF IT LANDS ON THE LINE IT’S IN. ANY PART OF THE BALL ON THE LINE IT’S IN. ANKENY CENTENNIAL WON THE LAST SET 25-18. SO AGAIN THERE WAS — THAT WAS HULSTEIN HITTING FROM THE OUTSIDE. YOU CAN SEE THERE’S A HUGE HOLE IN THE BLOCK. AND SO HULSTEIN HAS NO PROBLEM FINDING THE HOLE AND GETTING THE KILL. THE BLOCKERS FOR BOTH TEAMS REALLY NEED TO WORK ON CLOSING THE BLOCK SO THERE ARE FOUR ARMS SOLIDLY LIKE A WALL THAT THE HITTER HAD TO HIT AROUND. MUCH EASIER TO HIT IT THROUGH A WINDOW OR DOORWAY. OVER THE WALL BUT OUT-OF-BOUNDS. WHEN YOU TAKE THAT ATTACK. WHEN YOU TAKE THAT ANGLE TO GET OVER THE BALL IT MIGHT SAIL ON IT YOU A BIT. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE IT DEPENDS WHERE YOU’RE HITTING THE BALL FROM. IF YOU’RE NOT ABOVE THE BLOCKER THEN YOU NEED TO HIT UNDER AND ROLL THE BALL OVER. YOU CAN’T JUST HIT WHEREVER YOU WANT AND HOPE IT WILL FIND THE COURT. CALEA JONES. THE OUTSIDE HITTER WITH HER FOURTH KILL. JONES A TRUE TEAM PLAYER. SHE’LL BE BACK NEXT YEAR. ONE OF THE RETURNING PLAYERS FOR COACH JESSICA RINEHART. I THINK GREEN REALLY TRUSTS HULSTEIN. SHE’S HAVING HER RUNNING QUICK OUT OF THE MIDDLE. THE LAST PLAY HAD HER HITTING OUTSIDE. SHE TRUSTS HER AND SHE KNOWS SHE’S GOOD FOR A KILL WHEN SHE GETS THE BALL. AND THEY’RE IN THE WHITE TOPS. CEDAR FALLS IN THE RED UNIFORMS. AND A SIDE OUT FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL. THEIR FIRST TWO DOUBLE DIGITS.>>HERE’S THE REPLAY. THAT TIME YOU COULD SEE HULSTEIN REACHING TO THE OUTSIDE BLOCKER. GO STRAIGHT UP. AND THE BECAUSE THEY WERE REACHING WINTERS WAS ABLE TO HIT OVER THE BLOCKER. THAT WAS PRETTY. SHE’S LIKE A MAGICIAN. SHE DISGUISED THIS SO WELL. IT’S JUST A LITTLE QUESTIONABLE BECAUSE WE HAVEN’T SEEN HER HAVE MUCH OFFENSE. SHE HAD TWO KILLS IN THE SEMIFINAL. SHE’S DUMPED MORE THAN IN THE OTHER TWO MATCHES THIS WEEK. AGAIN, ONE OF THE TOP 50 BEST PLAYERS EVER TO PLAY THE SPORT OF VOLLEYBALL IN THE HISTORY OF THE STATE OF IOWA. LET’S LOOK AT HER. CAN’T IMAGINE LOOKING THROUGH THE OTHER SIDE OF THE NET HOW AM I GOING TO STOP HER ATTACK.>>AND IF IT WORKED ONCE YOU MIGHT AS WELL TRY IT AGAIN, RIGHT?>>NET CAM EVERYONE EXPECTING THE SET. NOBODY EXPECTING THAT THE CAMP FIRE. GREEN NOW A CHANCE TO SERVE. IT’S 11-10 ANKENY CENTENNIAL WITH THE LEAD. TIGERS ON A MINI RUN HERE. BROWN ATTACKS IT. TO THE MIDDLE. BEAUTIFUL ROLL SHOT. I THOUGHT SHE WAS GOING TO COME WITH THE POWER.>>AND THE ROLL SHOT WAS SO PRETTY BECAUSE IT LANDED IN FRONT OF THE 10-FOOT LINE. AND THAT WAS SUCH A NICE TOUCH ON THAT BALL.>>KENNA SAUER HAS BEEN SO GOOD. THEY CALLED THAT PLAY AGAINST YATES EARLIER AND THAT LOOKED LAAR. SHE KIND OF CAUGHT IT BEHIND HER HEAD AND PUSHED IT FORWARD. AS WE ALWAYS SAY THE REFS ARE THE BEST IN THE STATE. EVALUATED AND GETTING A CHANCE THE TOP OFFICIAL BOB FESSLER HAS BEEN DOING IT A LONG TIME. JAGUARS GETTING A LITTLE SEPARATION HERE IN THE CLASS 5A CHAMPIONSHIP SECOND SET. HERE’S HEAD COACH JESSICA RINEHART IN THE HUDDLE. FIRST OFFENSE JUST LIKE. BE LIVE, BE ACTIVE. DEVYN. WE’VE GOT TO KEEP OUR HANDS HIGH. THEY’RE STILL DOING A LOT OF QUICK ONES. JOSEY, STAY UP. #9. YOU AND RILEY HAD SOME CONFUSION. YOU CALL IT AND YOU TAKE IT.>>HEAD COACH JESSICA RINEHART OVERALL RECORD 211 VICTORIES, JUST 30 LOSSES. SHE’S BEEN THE HEAD COACH SINCE ANKENY CENTENNIAL WAS A SCHOOL. THAT’S ONLY BEEN SIX YEARS. ALL SIX YEARS SHE’S LED ANKENY CENTENNIAL TO STATE. THEY’VE BEEN STATE CHAMPIONS A COUPLE OF TIMES ALREADY. THEY’VE HAD A GREAT YEAR. REPRESENTING THE CMIL CONFERENCE. THE TIGERS NEEDED A POINT AND THEY GOT ONE. THEY WENT TO BROWN WHO HAS EIGHT KILLS SO FAR TODAY.>>SHE DID A NICE JOB HITTING HIGH OFF THE BLOCKER’S HANDS. BROWN.>>THAT’S WHO I’D SET.>>THE SERVE BY BROWN LOOKED REALLY GOOD. A BEAUTIFUL PASS. AND I’D GO ROBINSON AS WELL.>>SHE’S HITTING OVER THE BLOCK, AND JUST PUTTING THE BALL DOWN. I BET HER ARM. THEY COULD PROBABLY SCRATCH HER KNEES. BROAD SHOULDERS. BEAUTIFUL BUILD FOR A VOLLEYBALL PLAYER. AND STRONG UPPER BODY. SO ROBINSON WITH NINE KILLS. SAUER WITH NINE AS WELL. FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL. THAT’S BEEN THE STORYLINE HERE. CEDAR FALLS HAVE ONLY LOST TWO SETS ALL YEAR. BUT THEY LOST THE OPENER 25-18 IN THE CLASS 5A CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH. REALIZING EVERYONE IS CREEPING UP. NO ONE IS AT HOME IN THE BACK ROW. EVERYONE WAS CREEPING UP. SHE WAS ABLE TO GET A HAND ON IT AND PUT IT IN THE GOLDEN CORNER. KIRSTEN GRAVES THE LIBERO. BLOCK ATTACK. AND IT’S NOW FOR A POINT. HERE’S #8 RILEY MORGAN. 5’9″ SENIOR SETTER. SERVICE 8. NICE HUSTLE. BUT THAT’S EXACTLY THE KIND OF EFFORT CEDAR FALLS IS GOING TO NEED IF THEY COME BACK HERE. THE LEAD GROWS TO SIX. COMING IN HOT. BROWN MISS HANDLES IT. GRAVES GIVES IT HER ALL. LET’S GO INSIDE THE TIGER HUDDLE.>>WE’RE JUST MAKING TOO MANY MISTAKES. WE’RE LETTING THEM COMFORTABLE. IT’S PLAYING DEFENSE AND MAKE THEM TAKE EXTRA SWINGS. AND HOW MANY PRESSURE SWINGS THEY’VE TAKEN IN THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. YOU’VE GOT TO MAKE THEM UNCOMFORTABLE. YOU’VE GOT TO DO A BETTER JOB OF SCRAPPING, GETTING YOUR FEET SET. MAKING THEM TAKE A SWING.>>LET’S GO.>>SO YOU HEARD ASSISTANT TIMMONS IN THERE HIT SERVICE WITH A PURPOSE. THAT IS EXACTLY. YOU HAVE TO HIT WHERE THE COACHES WANT YOU TO SERVE. THERE’S A REASON THEY WANT YOU TO SERVE THAT. AGAINST ANKENY CENTENNIAL PART OF THE REASON IS SO ROBINSON CAN’T BE SET.>>TIMMONS A LONG TIME ASSISTANT COACH AT CEDAR FALLS.>>THEY’VE GOT A GREAT TEAM. GOOD HEAD COACH, AND GREAT ASSISTANTS. DOWN FOR A CENTENNIAL POINT. YOU CAN SEE HER HANDS WERE PUSHED AGAINST THE NET. THAT’S WHY THE BALL WENT OUT-OF-BOUNDS. YOU HAVE TO KEEP YOUR SHOULDER PARALLEL TO THE NET SO IT CREATES A PARALLEL WALL.>>GREEN HAD TO SCRAMBLE TO GET A SET OFF THERE. SAUER WAITING TO GET THAT BLOCK. AN 8-POINT LEAD. AND THE MOMENTUM AND ENERGY IS GOING. YOU WANT TO SERVE TOUGH. THAT TIME JUST A LITTLE TOO MUCH ON IT. YOU NEED TO GET BACK THERE, AND CALM YOURSELF AND GO. DON’T PLAY PLAY YOURSELF INTO THE RACING FEELING.>>EMILY HAYES. GOOD SWING. TIGERS ABLE TO HANDLE IT DEFENSIVELY. NOW THE OVERPASS ALL THE WAY TO THE BACK ROW. BETTER DUMP. GOOD JOB BY THE LIBERO TO KEEP THAT ALIVE FOR CENTENNIAL. JAGS KEEPING THE PLAY THIS MORNING. TIGERS WITH ANOTHER POINT. THEY TRAIL BY SIX.>>THEY KIND WERE DOING WHAT COACH JOHNSON WAS TELLING THEM. KEEP THE RALLY GOING. MAKE THEM TAKE ANOTHER SWING. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THE TIGERS WERE DOING. ANOTHER SERVE WITH PURPOSE: THEY DON’T GET A GOOD ATTACK.>>BOTH COACHES MUST KNOW WHAT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT. KIND OF LIKE TEACHERS, AND PARENTS. YOU’VE GOT TO LISTEN TO THEM. THEY KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING. A 5-POINT LEAD FOR THE JAGS. ALMOST ANOTHER SERVICE ACE. BUT A FREE BALL IS ALMOST AS GOOD. IT RESULTS IN ANOTHER TIGER POINT. BUT THEY’RE HAPPY THAT CENTENNIAL CALLS THEIR TIME OUT. AND THE RUN FOR THE TIGERS HAS MADE THIS ONE INTERESTING IN THE SECOND SET. LET’S GO INSIDE THE CENTENNIAL HUDDLE. YOU’VE GOT TO STEP IN FAST. YOU’LL BE READY. WE’VE GOT THE GAME LEAD. GO. AS I WAS LOOKING AT RESEARCH EARLIER TODAY I TALKED TO MY MARK SIMPSON. YOU KNOW WHAT THESE TWO TEAMS AT ANKENY CENTENNIAL TOURNAMENT ALL EIGHT PARTICIPANTS ARE IN THE 5A STATE TOURNAMENT. TALK ABOUT GOOD COMPETITION EARLY IN THE YEAR BEFORE THE CHAMPIONSHIPS STARTS. THAT WAS MONTHS AGO THOUGH, BARB. YOU HEARD ABOUT COACH RINEHART STICKING THE PASS. WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID. THEY HAD LIVELY RUN THE QUICK PICK TRYING TO TAKE IT TO THE BLOCKER SO SAUER WAS UP AGAINST THE BLOCK. SO THEN CEDAR FALLS IS PUSHING THEM UP AGAINST THE WALL.>>ATTACK WAS GOOD. JUST HIT IT TOO HARD. NOW IT’S A 3-POINT BALL GAME HERE IN THE SECOND SET. THE CENTENNIAL WON THE FIRST ONE 25-18. FINALLY. IT WAS A RUN OF 5. MOMENTUM IS SWINGING BACK TO CEDAR FALLS SIDE. THEY NEED TO GET THIS STOP HERE, AND GET THE BALL RIGHT AWAY SO CENTENNIAL CAN’T GET IT GOING BACK THEIR WAY. THERE’S ONE OF THEM. IT’S SCORED BY A DEFENSIVE BLOCK. LOOK AT HOW PERFECT THIS IS. SHUTTING THE DOOR ON THE TIGERS THERE. SAUER TO SERVE. SHE’S BEEN A MAINSTAY FOR THIS TEAM FOR MANY YEARS. GREEN TO BROWN FROM THE BACK. THAT’S WHAT YOU CALL FOLLOWING THE BALL. EVERY COACH TELLS EVERY DEFENDER FOLLOW THE BALL. WELL IT’S HARD WHEN YOU’RE FOLLOWING THE BALL YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE THE LINES ARE. HOPEFULLY HER TEAM WAS YELLING AT HER. TIGERS HAD A 5-0 RUN JUST MINUTES AGO. LOOKING TO GET ANOTHER 5-0 RUN RIGHT NOW. TIPPED. AND GOOD JOB DEFENSIVELY. SCRAPPY DEFENSE. GREAT HUSTLE. BUT THE TIGERS ARE CELEBRATING ANOTHER POINT. GREEN REALLY SEES THE COURT WELL. SHE SEES FROM HER BASKETBALL EXPERIENCE SHE’S KNOWS WHAT’S HAPPENING. SHE LOVES THE GOLDEN CORNER. GREEN COMMITTED TO PLAY BASKETBALL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF THE NORTHERN IOWA. DOWN THE LINE. THAT ONE IS IN. INCHING CLOSER TO THE 25 POINTS AND THAT IS THE THIRD KILL FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL’S WINTERS. THE LIBERO WHO’S DONE A TERRIFIC JOB WITH THE SERVE. 23-19. GOT IT THROUGH THE BLOCK. BROWN IS HAVING HERSELF A DAY. NINE KILLS.>>AND YOU CAN SEE THE BLOCK IS THERE. ROBINSON TOUCHES IT. BUT IT’S JUST HER FINGERTIPS AND IT’S HARD TO CONTROL THE FINGERTIPS. IT’S HOPEFULLY YOUR BACK ROW CAN DIG THE BALL.>>SETTER DUMP. DOWN FOR ANOTHER POINT. EMERSON GREEN.>>IF I’M COACH RINEHART DON’T LET THE SETTER ANYMORE. YOU HAVE TO BE AWARE. SHE CAN BE JUMPING AND ABOVE THE HEIGHT OF THE NET AND SEND THE BALL OVER. YOU HAVE TO BE AWARE WHERE SHE IS. JOSEY MAGNER THE LIBERO FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL. LOOK AT THAT HUSTLE. INTO THE BENCH. KEEPING IT ALIVE. OH MY. WHEN THE BLOCK HAPPENED RIGHT HERE THIS WAS CALLED A LIFT RIGHT THERE. YOU CANNOT HIT WITH AN OPEN HAND AND SHE HAD AN OPEN HAND HIT UNDERHAND. OPEN HAND.>>30 SECONDS BEFORE THAT PLAY GREEN WAS IN THE BENCH KEEPING IT ALIVE. WHO’S IT GOING TO BE. WHO’S GOING TO WIN THE SECOND SET. THE JAGS OR THE TIGERS. FOR ALL OF THE MOMENTUM TIGERS HAVE RIGHT NOW DIGGING THEMSELVES OUT OF THE HUGE HOLE. KENEDY BALENTINE WANTS TO END THE SET RIGHT NOW. NICE THING FOR THE TIGERS IS THAT THEIR FANS ARE BACK INTO IT. ALL THIS MOMENTUM THEY’VE GAINED HAS KIND OF AWAKENED THE FANS.>>CENTENNIAL WAS DOMINANT IN THE SECOND SET. BUT CEDAR FALLS TIGERS ON A RUN. SET POINT. THEY GOT IT. CENTENNIAL UP 2-0. GIVE THEM CREDIT. THEY HELD OFF A FURIOUS RUN BY CEDAR FALLS AND NOW CENTENNIAL IS ONE SET AWAY FROM CLAIMING THE 2018 CLASS 5A CHAMPIONSHIP.>>JUST A LITTLE BIT OF MISCOMMUNICATION HOW FAR BACK THE BALL WAS GOING TO BE SET. WILL CENTENNIAL WIN IN THREE. WILL THE TIGERS FORCE A FOURTH SET. WE’LL BE BACK TO FIND OUT. CENTENNIAL HAS LOOKED VERY GOOD HERE. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE SECOND SET. IT’S MORE THAN ONE PLAYER GETTING IN THE ACTION FOR CENTENNIAL. ARI WINTERS ON THE FIRST KILL. SAUER WITH THE SWEET TOUCH. THERE SHE IS. DEVYN ROBINSON. TIGERS HAD A BIG RUN IN THE CLOSING STAGES OF THE SECOND SET. AND WE ARE EXCITED FOR THIS THIRD SET WHERE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN. IT’S A MUST WIN SCENARIO. IF THEY WANT A CHANCE TO DEFEND THEIR CLASS 5A TITLE AND FORCE THE FOURTH SET. CENTENNIAL IS STILL HITTING ABOVE .300. THAT’S WHEN THEY GAINED THE MOMENTUM. CLOSE START FOR THE TIGERS. IT’S GREAT WHEN THEY MAKE A RUN TOWARD THE MIDDLE AND END YOU DON’T HAVE TO EXERT THAT MUCH ENERGY BACK TO TIE IT. WE’RE TIED AT ONE APIECE NOW. TAKING A LOOK AT SOME INDIVIDUAL STATS. AND SHE’S HITTING .273. SIX KILLS FOR YATES, AND FOUR KILLS FOR HULSTEIN. GREEN AND FOR CENTENNIAL. 10 KILLS FOR ROBINSON HOUTING .533. SHE HAS TWO DIGS AND EIGHT BLOCKS. SAUER HITTING .544. OVERALL .362 FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL. THEY’VE BEEN TOO CLOSE YATES SAID ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. AND ENDS THE RALLY WITH THE POINT. 2-0. IS THE REPLAY OF YATES. WELL SHE’S UP AGAINST THE DOUBLE BLOCK. IT GOES OFF THE FINGERTIPS. WE KICKED OFF OF THIS BROADCAST EXACTLY ONE HOUR AGO AND WE’VE SEEN SOME BEAUTIFUL VOLLEYBALL ON BOTH SIDES OF THE NET. CEDAR FALLS COMMITTED ON ROBINSON AND BOTH BROWN AND YATES WERE UP ON THE BLOCK, PUSHED OVER AND GOT A GREAT BLOCK ON IT. GREEN ANOTHER STRONG SERVE. 10 KILLS NOW FOR #21 AKACIA BROWN. SHE’S JUST A JUNIOR. NOT YET COMMITTED TO WHERE SHE’S GOING TO GO TO SCHOOL.>>BEAUTIFUL BLOCK.>>SO CEDAR FALLS IS REALLY DOING A SMART JOB OF BLOCKING RIGHT NOW. THEY KNOW THAT CALEA JONES ON THE RIGHT SIDE DIDN’T GET SET THAT MUCH. THEY’RE BRINGING ALL THREE BLOCKERS, AND THEN THEY CAN DOUBLE AND TRIPLE BLOCK ANYTHING THAT GOES TO JONES OR WINTERS. WE’LL SEE IF CENTENNIAL MAKES SOME ADJUSTMENTS. I WOULD SAY WATCH WHAT’S HAPPENING ON THE BLOCK. THE CENTER CAN SEE IT OUT OF HER PERIPHERY. THAT’S A RIGHT SIDE HITTER. TIGERS LEAD BY FOUR. LET’S GO INSIDE THE TIGER HUDDLE. WE’VE GOT A LONG MATCH. WE’RE HAPPY ABOUT THE START. WE’RE NOT GOING CRAZY OVER THE START. WE’VE GOT SO MUCH MORE WORK TO DO. IT’S JUST THROW A BALL AROUND. YOU JUST MADE THEM A LITTLE BIT MORE UNCOMFORTABLE. LET’S GO.>>THAT’S GREAT ADVICE FROM COACH JOHNSON.>>MATTHEW JOHNSON HAS BEEN THE HEAD VOLLEYBALL COACH FOR 15 YEARS. THIS IS HIS FIFTH YEAR AT CEDAR FALLS. 497 CAREER VICTORIES. EIGHT TRIPS TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT. THIS IS A FOURTH TIME HE’S TAKEN CEDAR FALLS TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT. AS COACH. THE RUN CONTINUES FOR CEDAR FALLS.>>I’M NOT SAYING I HAVE A FAVORITE HERE BECAUSE IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO WINS. BUT I REALLY LIKE WATCHING THE CELEBRATIONS.>>WELL THEY HAVE SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE BECAUSE THEY LEAD BY 5 IN A MUST WIN THIRD SET.>>GOOD JOB TO GET THAT ONE TO HIT THE COURT.>>WELL THAT WAS A GREAT SPOT TOO. IT WAS LONG ENOUGH WHERE THE FRONT ROW BLOCKERS COULDN’T PLAY IT. NICE SPOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FLOOR. CENTENNIAL WON THE FIRST SET 25-18. WON THE SECOND SET 25-22. BACK ROW ATTACK. DOWN FOR A KILL.>>SAUER HAS BEEN A MAINSTAY IN THE LINEUP FOR ANKENY CENTENNIAL FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. SHE BROKE A BONE IN HER LEG AND WAS OUT FOR FIVE WEEKS. END UP FALLING TO WEST DES MOINES VALLEY. BUT SHE SAID IT JUST HURT HER SO MUCH BECAUSE SHE WASN’T ABLE TO PLAY AT 100% LAST YEAR. NOW SHE’S A SENIOR AND NOW SHE’S HUNGRY AND SHE WANTS TO DO EVERYTHING IN HER POWER TO GET CENTENNIAL THEIR FOURTH STATE FINAL IN SIX YEARS.>>A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HER LEG INJURY. THEY HAVE A ZOO OVER THERE. MASCOTS. BUT THE ONE THAT CAME AFTER KENNA HURT HER FOOT WAS THE LLAMA. WHATEVER THEY THERE’S THE LLAMA. THERE’S AS LITTLE UNICORN. WHEN THEY RUB THE EARS THEY’RE GOING FOR LUCK, AND THEY HAVE ONE OF THE ASSISTANT COACHES THAT KEEP TRACK OF HOW THE LLAMA WORKS. THAT’S KILL 11 FOR SAUER. EVERYBODY IS ON THE FLOOR FOR BALLS. YOU’RE GETTING YOUR BODY IN POSITION AND TAKING THOSE BALLS. ARI WINTERS WITH THE SERVE. SERVICE ERROR AND THE TIGERS GET THE POINT. GRAVES AGAIN OLDER SISTER IS ONE OF THE BEST OF PLAY VOLLEYBALL AT CEDAR FALLS HIGH SCHOOL. SHE WAS A MIDDLE AND GRAVES NOW. WE LIKE MIDDLES >>HELPING IN THE BACK ROW. BACK ROW ATTACKED BY BROWN. SET NEAR SIDES. IT’S SAUER AGAIN. KENNA SAUER THE SENIOR. SO MISSOURI HAS BEEN RECRUITING HER MANY SCHOOLS WERE. SHE SIGNS WITH MISSOURI. WHAT IS SHE GOING TO BRING TO THE NEXT LEVEL.>>SHE’S GOT A LOT OF GRIT. SHE FIGHTS HARD I THINK IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THESE PLAYERS TRANSITION TO THE NEXT LEVEL. IT IS A LOT DIFFERENT AT THE NEXT LEVEL. IT’S HIT SO MUCH HARDER, AND EVERYTHING IS LIKE 10 TIMES WHAT IT IS HERE.>>PLAYING AT A VERY HIGH LEVEL AT CLASS 5A CHAMPIONSHIP. THERE IS A NOTICEABLE JUMP AND LAST YEAR AT CEDAR FALLS. ATTACK GOES OUT-OF-BOUNDS. AND IT’S NOW 12-8 IN FAVOR OF CEDAR FALLS. THAT TIME THAT BLOCK WAS A LITTLE BIT SEPARATED. SHE TRIED TO CUT INSIDE THE BLOCK. AND COULDN’T FIND THE COURT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LINE. HERE’S THE SET. GOING RIGHT. SHE HAD HER SPOT PICKED OUT. RIGHT THERE. THIS SENIOR CLASS FOR KOOENGES HAS BEEN A PART OF THE TWO-STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS. ALSO THEY FELT THE HEARTACHE LAST YEAR. THEY KNOW THE HIGHS AND LOWS FROM INSIDE THE US CELLULAR CENTER IN THE HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONSHIP. THEY HAD A COUPLE OF LOWS AND THEY’RE TRYING TO GET A HIGHS AND IN THEIR CAREER. I MADE THREE OUT OF THE FOUR YEARS THEY’VE BEEN IN THE HIGH SCHOOL HAVE BEEN STATE CHAMP. ONE YEAR WE WEREN’T. WE DON’T TALK ABOUT THAT YEAR. WE MADE THE SEMIS BUT WE DON’T TALK ABOUT THAT. HERE THE REPLAY. THAT LOOKED BACK GOOD TO ME. BUT THE REST OF I WANT TO MAKE SURE NOTHING INAPPROPRIATE HAPPENED. SAUER I’LL KEEP TALKING ABOUT HER. SHE KEEPS MAKING PLAYS. SHE’S GOT 13. AND YOU CAN SEE WHAT A WELL-FORMED BLOCK DOES FOR YOU. CENTENNIAL ON A RUN. LET’S LISTEN WITH HEAD COACH JESSICA RINEHART. RILEY AND THAT 5-6 ZONE. WE’VE GOT TO LIMIT OUR ERRORS AND KEEP THE BALL ON THAT SIDE. BE SMART OR IF YOU SEE A DOUBLE OR TRIPLE BLOCK PUT IT INTO A CORNER. WE STAY THE AGGRESSOR. ULTIMATE CONFIDENCE. ONE BALL AT A TIME. MAKE THEM MAKE THE PLAY. PLAY SMART GO. IF YOU SEE A TRIPLE BLOCK UP AGAINST YOU THERE’S GOT TO BE AN AREA OF THE COURT OPEN.>>SARA ALBERTS HAD A BABY EIGHT DAYS AGO WHERE IS SHE. SHE’S ON THE BENCH.>>A FORMER NATIONAL TEAM. THESE PARENTS AND TEACHERS, AND COACHES KNOW WHAT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT. HAD A BABY EIGHT DAYS AGO, AND WANTS TO SEE ANKENY CENTENNIAL WIN ANOTHER STATE TITLE. THE MOMENTUM HAS SHIFTED BACK TO THE JAGS. AND WE’RE ALL KNOTTED UP AT THE 12-12 IN THE THIRD. GOOD PASS. NICE SET. HULSTEIN WITH THE SWING. CENTENNIAL ABLE TO KEEP IT ALIVE. JOUSTED AT THE NET. AND EMERSON GREENS THERE. AND THE EMERSON GREEN THEY WERE RIGHT ON HER. THAT’S THE FIRST TIME THEY’VE BLOCKED ONE OF HER TIP ATTEMPTS. LINE DRIVE SERVED. DIAL THAT ONE UP FOR A SERVICE ACE. IT’S HARD TO GET SERVICE ACES AGAINST OUTSTANDING DEFENSIVE TEAMS AT THIS LEVEL. RILEY MORGAN THE SETTER. POINT CEDAR FALLS. THAT WAS A 6-POINT RUN FOR THE JUDGING BEFORE CEDAR FALLS COULD WIN THE BALL BACK, AND CEDAR FALLS REALLY NEEDED TO KEEP THAT FROM HAPPENING BECAUSE THEY’RE THE ONES THAT NEED TO GAIN THE MOMENTUM SO THEY CAN CARRY THIS INTO A FOURTH SET AND POTENTIALLY A FIFTH SET. COACH RINEHART IS RIGHT. THEY ARE IN THE LEAD. THEY CAN STAY THE AGGRESSORS. THE ATTACK ERROR BENEFITS CEDAR FALLS. HERE’S CLAPP.>>SHE HAS BEEN SERVING AT MANY OF THE RUNS THAT CEDAR FALLS HAS HAD THROUGHOUT THIS TOURNAMENT. THIS IS A GOOD ROTATION FOR CEDAR FALLS TO SCORE POINTS. REALLY GOT A LOT OF SEPARATION YESTERDAY AGAINST LINDMAR.>>I THINK WE JINXED THEM. THEIR ARMS ARE HIGH. THEY’RE KIND OF PUSHED OVER. THEY COULD BE PUSHED OVER MORE. BUT THEY STILL GOT THE POINT. CHINGS ONE HARD. IT’S HARD TO BE A SETTER. IT’S HARD TO BE A SETTER ON THE TEAM. YOU NEED TO SET THE BALL THREE TO FOUR FEET OFF THE NET. THAT’S FOR A COUPLE REASONS. ONE SO THAT YOUR HITTER CAN SWING THROUGH WITH THEIR ARM AND NOT HIT THE NET. IF YOU’RE TIGHT TO THE NET YOU CAN’T HIT AROUND THE NET. IF YOU’RE OFF THE NET. SO IT’S GOOD TO BE FOUR FEET OFF THE NET SWINGING WITH THE BALL. BROWN WITH 13 KILLS. OVERPASS. GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY. TIGERS NOT ABLE TO GET THE POINT THOUGH. OVERPASS. BROWN 14th. STILL COUNTS AS A TOUCH. ATTACK OUT-OF-BOUNDS. WE’RE PAST THE HALFWAY POINT. TIGERS LEAD BY THE SLIMMEST OF MARGINS. THIS IS WHAT CEDAR FALLS NEEDS. WHAT ANKENY CENTENNIAL NEEDS IS TO STOP THIS RUN RIGHT HERE, TAKE CONTROL AND END IT IN THREE.>>NICE SERVE BY EMMA WEDGBURY. SHE’S JUST A SOPHOMORE. CENTENNIAL HAS LOOKED VERY GOOD IN THE FIRST AND SECOND SETS. PLAYING EVEN WITH THE TIGERS. SLICE AND DICE THAT ONE. THEY SAY IT GOES OUT-OF-BOUNDS. SHE CUT IT BUT A LITTLE BIT TOO MUCH. 2-POINT LEAD FOR CEDAR FALLS WANTING TO KEEP THE RUN GOING. CENTENNIAL WINS THAT BATTLE ABOVE THE NET. LIVELY DID A NICE JOB OF STAYING ABOVE THE BALL AND WATCHED WHAT YATES AND PUT IT ON THE FLOOR ON THE TIGERS SIDE. TWO OF THE TALLER PLAYERS WILL YATES A 6’5″ JUNIOR. LIVELY A 6’3″ SENIOR. YOU CAN’T TEACH OR COACH HEIGHT.>>THAT’S WHAT WE SAY.>>A LOT OF GOOD OPTIONS. DOWN THE LINE. WE’RE TIED AT 18-18. IF I’M ANKENY CENTENNIAL RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO MAKE HAY WHILE ROBINSON IS IN THE FRONT ROW. SET HER THE BALL EVERY SINGLE TIME AND LET HER DO SOMETHING WITH IT. IT’S OUT-OF-BOUNDS. THE JAGS ON TOP. KNOWING THAT THE GAME IS HANGING IN THE BALANCE. THE SET JUST A LITTLE BIT TOO MUCH. JUST UNDER THE BALL.>>LET’S GO INSIDE THE CEDAR FALLS HUDDLE. IF SHE GOES BIG AND EARLY DEVYN GOES WITH HER.>>TAKE A PASS HERE. ROBINSON CHASES THE MIDDLE. SO YOU CAN USE THEM IF YOU WANT. UNDERSTAND IS FLYING AWAY. THEY’RE LEAVING THE MIDDLE COURT. WE’VE GOT A PLACE TO DUMP ON. LET’S GO. ROBINSON CHASES THE MIDDLE. SHE’S GOING WITH THE CEDAR FALLS MIDDLE WHEREVER THEY GO. THEN THE MIDDLE COURT IS OPEN FOR A DUMP. GREEN SHE COULD POTENTIALLY HAVE A NICE SPOT FOR A DUMP HERE. ESPECIALLY IF YATES MAKES HERSELF NOTICEABLE. AND THE ROBINSON STICKS WITH HER. EXPECTING THE SETTER DUMP. GOOD CALL ON BOTH COACHES PARTS. THAT WAS OPEN AND WHAT JOHNSON TOLD HER TO DO, AND I’M SURE IN THE OTHER HUDDLE THAT THE JAGUARS. TWO CONSECUTIVE POINTS BY CENTENNIAL SINCE THE TIME-OUT. JAGS ARE HAVING A 2-POINT LEAD. MAGNER INTO THE NET. DIED OUT. WE HAVE TO GIVE CREDIT REGARDLESS WHAT HAPPENS TO CEDAR FALLS. THIS WAS A REBUILDING YEAR. THEY GRADUATED SIX STARTERS OFF LAST YEAR’S STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM. THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT THOUGHT KNEW IT WAS A REBUILDING. THEY DIDN’T HAVE GAME DAY VARSITY EXPERIENCE. THAT’S RIGHT. THEY PLAYED STATE RUNNERS-UP FOR TWO YEARS. THIS TEAM HAS BEEN BUILDING UP EVERY DAY IN THE GYM.>>20-21. 16 KILLS NOW DIALED UP BY AKACIA BROWN. LOOK AT THAT EXTENSION. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?>>YOU BASICALLY SET IT TO THE CEILING AND LET HER GO AFTER IT. SHE’S GOT THE GO-GO GADGET ARMS TO GET UP THERE. SHE HAS BROAD SHOULDERS. AND THE HANG TIME TOO.>>ROBINSON WRITES AN INSPIRATION MESSAGES ON HER HAND IN INK. GETS A SEMIFINAL QUOTE FROM THE MOHAMMED ALI. WHATEVER SHE WROTE TODAY IS HELPING HER LEAD THIS CENTENNIAL. CENTENNIAL IS SO CLOSE TO SWEEPING THE TIGERS. BROWN WITH A CHANCE TO SERVE. NICE SERVE. ALMOST A SERVICE ACE. HERE’S CENTENNIAL. BACK FOR ATTACK FOR SAUER. GREEN KEEPS IT ALIVE. A LITTLE TIP. GOOD RALLY. AND A POINT GOES TO CENTENNIAL. 23-21.>>WINTERS DID A REALLY NICE JOB OF GOING LINE. THE LINE WAS WIDE OPEN AND SHE HAMMERED IT.>>AGAIN, ANY IOWA HAWKEYE BASKETBALL WATCHING THAT’S JAMES WINTERS DAUGHTER. JAMES WAS THERE WHEN I WAS THERE. SHE GOT IT. SLICED IT. GOOD CUT. JUST GETS IT IN. 23-22. GRAVES. GOOD UP. QUICK SET. DENIED AND WE HAVE MATCH POINT FOR THE JAGUARS OF ANKENY CENTENNIAL. THE NUMBER 2 RANKED ANKENY CENTENNIAL. 11 SENIORS ON THIS TEAM. THEY DEFEATED IOWA CATHOLIC YESTERDAY. TODAY UNDEFEATED CEDAR FALLS. AND IT’S DOWN AND IN FOR THE TIGERS. AND THAT’S A SHOT. GOING DOWN THE LINE. AND IT’S DOWN. AND THE ANKENY CENTENNIAL HAS WON THEIR THIRD CLASS 5A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP IN THREE YEARS. THEY PLAYED WELL. A HISTORIC SEASON FOR CEDAR FALLS AND 46 WINS. ONE LOSS. THE TIGERS RUNNERS-UP LAST YEAR. THE CHAMPIONS THE YEAR RUNNERS-UP AS WELL. A GREAT BATTLE BUT CENTENNIAL HAD JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE WHEN IT COUNTED MOST WHEN IT CAME TO THE FINAL. WHAT DO YOU FEEL IT BOILED DOWN TO HERE, BARB. BASICALLY ANYTHING CEDAR FALLS TRIED TO DO WAS STOPPED BY ANKENY. EVEN WHEN THEY GOT ON A RUN BEFORE IT COULD COMPLETELY SWING THEIR WAY. THEY TOOK IT BACK.>>IT’S INCREDIBLE TO SEE THE CELEBRATION BECAUSE YOU KNOW HOW MUCH AGAIN LOOKING AT A BROKEN BONE IN THE LEG YEAR FOR SAUER. AND THEN THE PINK T-SHIRTS COME OUT. WE’LL NOW HONOR BOTH TEAMS AS WELL AS THE ALL TOURNAMENT HERE IN JUST A MOMENT. OVERALL FOR THE MATCH ANKENY CENTENNIAL HITTING .266. 12 FOR ROBINSON. BROWN HAD 16 KILLS.>>AND ROBINSON HIT .409. AND THEN DIG CEDAR FALLS ACTUALLY OUTDUG CENTENNIAL. AND ANKENY CENTENNIAL OUTBLOCKED CEDAR FALLS 9-5.>>JIM BEAMER AND DION CRAMER.
