BELLEVUE – Sometimes reality doesn’t live up to the hype while other times – like Saturday at the Bellevue West Invitational – it does.

Class A’s top-ranked Papillion-LaVista went a perfect 6-0 at the Bellevue West Invitational over the weekend – dropping just one set in the six matches – to win its first title in the tournament since 2014 with a 26-24, 25-17 win over Class B #2 Skutt Catholic. 

After falling in the championship match each of the past two years (last year to Millard North and to Papillion-LaVista South in 2017), the third time was the charm for the Monarchs.

Papillion-LaVista’s title didn’t seem anywhere near a lock in the first set against the Skyhawks as Skutt Catholic pulled out to a 13-7 lead
