Sammy Pedersen (Sr. – Muskego) had eight digs as the Titans had 58 saves in the match.

Before the contest the Titans honored graduating players Moua, Nordel and Sammy Pedersen from the Division I team, Steve Cotton (Muskego) and Andrew Shea (Brookfield) from Division II and Danny Mirda (Brookfield) from Division III.

“I am proud of the team’s resiliency tonight,” said head coach Will Brydon. “While it was not our best volleyball, the team stayed tough and battled back to win in the end. It is even more special to know this victory seals a tenth straight WVC Division I regular season title. To see the team continue the legacy of the teams that came before them is such an amazing sight. 10 years of championships is special accomplishment and a testament to our program’s determination to play at a top level day in and day out.”

“A special thanks to our graduating players as we celebrate their successes along with this victory,” added Brydon. “Their leadership, hard work, and drive make all the difference.”
