Heading into Saturday's Spikefest volleyball tournament, there was one team in particular that the De Soto was hoping to face if the Wildcats advanced to the finals. De Soto (28-3, ranked No. 4 in Class 5A) and Lansing (28-5, No. 2 in 5A) were the top-seeded teams in the 10-team tournament, and the Wildcats were eager to face the Lions to avenge two of their three losses on the season. The Wildcats got their wish and rose to the occasion to defeat the Lions in the championship match, 25-19, 28-26. With the victory over the Lions, the Wildcats won their home tournament for the first time in school history.
