Ashley Jordan's Lady
Warriors (Division-III)
& the Lady Shermans
led by Katelyn Jinks
(Division-II) each
captured top-seeds
Sunday in their
respective sectional
tournaments.
Sunday afternoon was high school volleyball's version
of
Selection Sunday as coaches from all over the
southeast got together at Jackson High School to vote
for seeding in the upcoming tournament. Due to the
large number of schools in Division-III in the district,
the southeast will once again get three teams out to
the regional tournament. Adena's 19-1 record was
more than enough to help earn them a top-seed. Other
top-seeds went to Alexander and Wheelersburg.
Huntington earned a #2 seed and will play in
Alexander's bracket while Westfall (#3), Zane Trace
(#4), and Southeastern (#7) all will play in
Wheelersburg's bracket. The good news for these three
league schools is that they are all away from one
another in the early rounds which means all three
could capture sectional titles. Paint Valley earned the
#8 seed up in Adena's bracket. If the Lady Bearcats
beat Peebles they would meet Adena in the sectional
final. Piketon earned a #10 seed. If they are able to
win a first-round game against Eastern, they would
have to upset Huntington in the final to reach the
districts.

Unioto, the conference's only Division-II
team, earned a top-seed. Despite the hard
hit the purple and gold took from last
year's graduation, the Lady Shermans will
enter this year's tournament as favorites to
defend their district crown.

POSTSEASON SCORES
Adena rolls to easy district-semifinal win over Oak Hill
Lady Warriors advance to Saturday's district final
The Scioto Valley Conference champions had little problem with Oak Hill in Tuesday's
district semifinal at Athens. The Lady Warriors just missed the shutout in game one
winning 25-2, and then cruised from there winning the next two 25-10, 25-12.

Ashley Jordan led the Warriors with 13 kills and 2 blocks, while setter Cadie Cory
dished out 24 assists. Kirsti Yates added 7 kills and 5 aces.

The win moves Adena to 23-1 overall, and they will return to Athens Saturday at 4:00
to play in the district championship against Minford. The winner of that match will
advance to the sweet-sixteen which will be held at the Convo on the campus of Ohio
University.

Little problems again for SVC in Athens
Lady Huntsmen beat Coal Grove Dawson Bryant to advance
WF and SE to meet in all-SVC district match-up
Winner to play for spot in regionals...Click here for more!
The Lady Huntsmen jumped out early in game one and was never really challenged in a
straight set district semifinal win over Coal Grove Dawson Bryant. Huntington served 23
aces in their dominate win. Dakota Collins produced 10 of those aces. Sophomore Megan
Fultz had 14 kills and 10 digs.

The win sends Huntington to Saturday's final against Alexander. The Lady Spartans have
been the southeast's best team over the past two seasons. SVC fans, to learn more about
Huntington's next opponent, click
here to visit an article I had written in the preseason on
Alexander.
Scioto Valley Conference champion Adena made quick work of Paint Valley as the
Warriors outscored the Bearcats 75-15 in the straight set win. Westfall didn't need much
longer to defeat visiting West Union, and Huntington also made quick work of Eastern
Brown. The Lady Panthers of Southeastern continued their great rebuilding season as the
blue and white went on the road and knocked off Trimble.

Unfortunately, some of the other teams found themselves on the other side of the
scoreboard. Top-seeded Unioto was beaten in straight sets by Chillicothe, and ZT had
their season come to an end with a straight set loss at Federal Hocking.

SECTIONAL FINALS: Up and down round for SVC
After two nights of the SVC having its way down at Athens, it was an all-SVC match-up
that took the district stage Thursday night. It was Westfall and Southeastern for the third
time this season, and even with the first two ending in incredible five-set wins for WF,
round three started out like it was going to produce another Southeastern threat.
Southeastern put themselves in great position to take early control of the match;
however, with the Lady Panthers leading 24-19, WF scored six straight points to take a
25-24 lead. After an Olivia Arledge kill, the Mustangs scored two straight to take game
one 27-25.

This momentum carried over to game two with Westfall taking complete control winning
25-16. At this point, it appeared the Mustangs would roll in straight sets, but
Southeastern still had a run in them. The Lady Panthers started game three scoring 11 of
the first 14 points, but once again it was Westfall storming back to take the lead halfway
through the set as they went on to complete the straight set win with a 25-18 third set
win.

The loss ends a fine season for SE - a season that saw the Lady Panthers win 12 matches
and their first sectional title since 1996. Southeastern was led by Olivia Arledge with 12
kills and two aces. Kaitlin Duarte had 24 assists while Bailee Cox and Catherine Dresbach
both recorded 14 digs.

For Westfall (14-10) in the win, Suzy Gantz recorded 17 kills, 15 digs, and two aces.
Setter Hannah Gabriel dished out 31 assists and had 11 digs while Nicole Ratcliff had 15
digs and two aces. The Mustangs will return to Athens on Saturday to play
Wheelersburg for a district championship. This match will mark the 11th time in 12 years
that the Mustangs have played for a district title and nine times they have captured the
title.
Westfall completes first-set comeback and then rolls in straight sets

Huntington loses to Alexander
ADENA WINS EASY TO CAPTURE ANOTHER DISTRICT TITLE
The Lady Warriors had an easy time Saturday afternoon at Athens
beating Minford in straight sets 25-9, 25-9, 25-16 to capture a district
title. Scioto Valley Confernce Player of the Year Ashley Jordan had
14 kills in the quick, three-set match and setter Cadie Cory dished out
29 assists.

The win moves the two-shade blue to 24-1 and they advance to next
Thursday's regional at the Convo in Athens. Adena plays the second
game  of the night (WF vs. Alexander at 6:00) against Tusky Valley.
HUNTINGTON FALLS TO ALEXANDER FOR RUNNER-UP FINISH
Huntington was able to hang with last year's state runner-up Spartans
for most of game one Saturday afternoon; however, the tough
Alexander serving started to take control of the match. In the end, it
was Alexander rolling to the straight set win 25-19, 25-8, 25-16.
WESTFALL BEATS WHEELERSBURG IN AN
INSTANT CLASSIC FIVE-SET THRILLER
With Westfall up two games to none and up 12-3 in the third set, it
looked like the Mustangs were well on their way to the straight set win.
Wheelersburg stormed back to take game three, won game four, and
had an early lead in game five. That is when WF found a way to
regroup as they found a way to capture the district title in five - 28-26,
25-15, 24-26, 21-25, 15-11. Suzy Gantz had a huge night recording
24 kills, 10 digs, 3 blocks, and 4 aces. Haley Gabriel had 20 kills
while sister Hannah dished out 45 assists. Nicole Ratcliff had 16 digs.
Westfall (15-10) wins the district title for the 10th time in 12 years.
