Tinora (18-1) defeated Toledo Christian 27-29, 25-19, 25-16 in the finals to win its fourth straight Streak Spike- Tacular championship, Saturday, Sept. 30, at Archbold.

Otsego defeated Paulding 25-15, 25-17, to place third.

Archbold (7-11) defeated Pettisville (11-6) to finish fifth, and Kidron Central Christian defeated Hilltop 27-25, 25-16 to finish seventh.

Archbold’s Macey Rupp and Pettisville’s Jess Youse were both named to the All- Tournament Team.

“This is always a great tournament to host with great competition,” said Jill Holdgreve, AHS head coach.

“In our first match with Toledo Christian, I felt that we were very up and down with our momentum and didn’t come ready to play.

“Toledo Christian is a great team that took advantage of our mistakes at different times to come up with three- and four-point rallies to beat us.

“In our second match with Central Christian, we got ourselves going and played a much more solid defense. We began reading hitters better instead of getting stuck on our heels.

“Our hitting errors improved as well, which helped us to grab the second set fairly easily.

“Our third match is always an exciting and intense one with our neighbor community Pettisville. The girls were pumped up and ready to get to business.

“We came out and did a lot of nice things right away that got the momentum on our side, and we were able to execute the way that we want to.”
