Saint Joseph Academy, the two-time defending district champions, and Division 1 state final four team from a year ago, announced its 2017 regular season schedule today.
The Jaguars, coming off a 22-6 season last year, will take part in four tournaments during the season (Norwalk HS, Renee Roche, NEO Power Tournament and Perrysburg HS) and also play nine regular season contests against some of the best programs in Northeast Ohio.
Highlights of the schedule include Padua on August 31 in the home opener for SJA, CYO Night on September 5 against Beaumont, the rivalry game with Magnificat at SJA on September 20 and an away game at Gilmour Academy on Oct. 6.
This will mark the final season for SJA as an independent school before the Jaguars move to the North Coast League in 2018-19.
HERE is the full varsity schedule for 2017-18. JV and Freshman volleyball schedules will follow.
