The Saint Joseph Academy volleyball team is one step away from the state tournament.
On Thursday evening at Port Clinton High School, the Jaguars posted a 3-0 sweep (25-20, 25-20, 25-23) over Toledo Notre Dame Academy in the OHSAA Division 1 regional semifinal match.
The win advances the Jaguars to Saturday’s regional final against Olmsted Falls High School. That match will be played at 2:00 p.m. back at Port Clinton HS with the winner advancing to the state final four.
The Jaguars and Bulldogs are no stranger to postseason play. In fact, this will be the sixth straight season that Saint Joseph Academy and Olmsted Falls have met in the OHSAA tournament. The Jaguars have won the previous five matches, including last year’s win in the district semifinal round.
