Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-  Tripoli has pulled off what few schools have been able to accomplish, a three-peat. 

The Panthers knocked off Janesville in the 1A title game in straight sets 25-18. 25-16, 25-15, en route to a ninth championship in school history.

"I couldn't believe it.  It was my third year in a row and I'm a senior so it was extra special," said Natalie Figanbaum, Panther outside hitter.

1A All-Tournament captain Megan Gilbert had 26 kills and 10 digs for the Panthers, who finished the year with a 36-5 mark.

Olivia Fisher had 12 kills, four service aces and 10 digs for Janesville, who finish the year 26-9.
