Green Hope ends Apex's run
August 31, 2011Tri-Nine Conference
APEX - For the last four years, Green Hope senior Kaitlin Quinn had been wanting to put away Apex. On Tuesday night, her tip in the fifth set did just that -- and ended two long-standing winning streaks in the process.
After dropping the first two sets, Green Hope rallied to win the last three in succession to snap the defending 4-A champions' 31-game winning streak, a run that dates back to the 2009 playoffs. The Falcons' won 21-25, 22-25, 25-20, 25-23, 15-11, becoming the first conference opponent to defeat Apex since 2008 -- a streak that extended 48 games.
But perhaps the streak the Green Hope seniors cared about the most was the one they had dealt with the most -- the Falcons had not defeated Apex in four years.
Falcons coach Karl Redelfs knew his team was champing at the bit to play Tuesday's match, so he didn't fight their excitement.
