OMAHA - In a triangular featuring three of the top teams in Class C-1, it was Grand Island Central Catholic that came out on top Tuesday.

Centennial Conference foes Lincoln Lutheran (#1), Grand Island CC (#4) and Omaha Concordia (#7) each took a crack at each other with GICC going 2-0, Lincoln Lutheran 1-1 and Concordia 0-2.

The highlight match came in the middle as Lincoln Lutheran, which entered the match 11-0, took on GICC, which came into the contest at 11-1.

Both sets were ultra competitive with the Crusaders finding a way to close out stronger. With the first set tied at 20-20, Omaha recruit Megan Woods had two straight kills followed by an ace serve from Lauryn Willman to put the Crusaders up 23-20. GICC eventually got to set point at 24-21 on a Lutheran service error and - after a kill from the Warriors’ Marriah Buss made it 24-22 - Woods closed it out with her eighth kill of the set.

In the second set, a kill by Buss evened the score at 22-22, but a hitting error on the Warriors followed by a kill from Avery Kalvoda and tip kill from setter Katie Maser gave GICC
