St. Francis, Kopec win 10th state title
Nov 17, 2013 8:39 AM -
Just how dominant was St. Francis' girls volleyball team in winning its second straight Class 3A state championship Saturday? The match was over before it was scheduled to begin. Literally. With no network TV restrictions dictating start times, the IHSA started Saturday's title match between the Spartans and LaSalle-Peru at 5:30 p.m., a full 30 minutes ahead of the 6 p.m. scheduled start time. And it was over at 5:58. St. Francis rolled over L-P 25-19, 25-7 to win its 10th state title under 38th year coach Peg Kopec, the second championship of the day for the Suburban Christian Conference, following IC Catholic Prep's Class 2A title earlier in the afternoon.
