(August 28th, 2014)-NAPOLEON: Marching into Saint Paul’s native gym, the Junior High Lady Cadets were set to invade the foreign territory. Yet it wasn’t meant to be, as the Hilltop girls were not able to overcome playing on the obstacle of playing on the road.
Leaving everything they had on the court, the Seventh Grade Cadet Squad made things a struggle for Saint Paul. After losing the first set 13-25, the girls from Hilltop struck back in game 2, taking the set 25-14. In the decisive third set of the match, the Lady Cadets fell in epic fashion, losing the game 23-25.
