My prediction was right as Helias repeated as the tournament champions.  The Crusaders caught fire at the right time and ran through Farmington in the quarterfinals 25-14, 25-19, and a redemption win over Jackson in the semifinals 25-18, 28-26.  Jackson had beaten Helias in pool play 20-25, 22-25.  Valle Catholic won their pool going 7-1 and knocked off Mehlville in the quarterfinals 25-17, 25-16, then whipped Lindbergh in the semifinals 25-11, 25-16.  The final pitted Helias and Valle, with Helias taking a 25-14, 20-25, 25-16 title.
