The Knights finished in a tie for the North Shore Conference title after taking third in the league tournament last Saturday at Cedarburg.
It was controversial, as Germantown deliberately lost a pool play match so it could meet Nicolet in the semifinals. The only way the Warhawks could tie the Knights for the league title is if they won the tournament and then Nicolet finished third.
They wound up beating the Knights 25-19, 29-27, in the semifinal and then beat Homestead in the final while Nicolet beat Milwaukee Lutheran in the consolation match.
"We will certainly have to be more consistent. As for losing to Germantown, I thought they played very well and we did not play at our best. I disagree with the way they went about getting to play us in the semifinals, but they played within the rules of the conference and I give them full credit for their victory over us," said coach Dann Jacobson.
Nicolet was led by Melissa Morello with 43 kills and Krystalyn Goode with 35 while Dana Kenney went over 1,000 assists for her career with 98 for the day.
Nicolet, ranked fourth in the state, earned the top seed in the Brookfield East WIAA sectional. The Knights earned a first-round bye and will host the winner of Milwaukee Riverside and Milwaukee King in a regional final at 7 p.m. on Saturday.
