Roanoke Catholic played a grueling schedule this season; losing only to public school power house Hidden Valley, and to VIS Division I runner up Liberty Christian Academy. This challenging schedule helped prepare the girls for what has become their second state championship in as many years. In the tournament Roanoke Catholic defeated Stonebridge in three sets to advance to the semi finals in Richmond. In Friday’s match against Westover Roanoke Catholic was again able to advance taking all three sets. The Roanoke Catholic Celtics took the championship title without losing a game.
