Cape Girardeau, Mo. - The Hermann Lady Bearcats won a state record 12th State Championship in two sets over St. Pius X (Festus) 25-22, 25-18.  Coach Linda Lampkin picked up her 91st Final Four win and 820th career win.

Hermann’s Emillie Diebal had a game high eight kills. Jamie Glesson added eight digs and when her seventh kill feel to floor fans went crazy as players dog pilled on top Glesson.

Ironically, the same play they ran that gave them an unexpected birth in the Final Four gave the Lady Bearcats an unexpected 12th State Title.

The last time Hermann won a State Title was in 2010 when they defeated St. Pius in two sets.

We will have a complete story that will include interviews from players and coaches along with coverage of this afternoon’s parade.
