It is the 11th regional final, but the 12th time in the final 8 since 2002. The odd ball was the stretch of years where D1 was two regions. So the final 8 was technically a regional semifinal. Here is Mentor’s record in the round of final 8:I believe this is now the 11th appearance in the final 8 in the last 21 years for Mentor. 7-4 at this stage in that timeframe
St Eds: 1-2
St Ignatius: 3-1
If you count 2013 state semifinal/regional final against St Edward, the two programs are 2-2 in the regional final against each other.
