With these selections, it would be interesting to see the Moeller/Orange re-match in the state semis. They met in the Centerville elite and Moeller ended up winning game five 15-2!

They had the rematch last week to 10 days ago. Moeller won in 3 pretty ugly.
Funny how Elder seemed to be hitting their stride at the right time a week or so ago and now Moeller is too. Just makes for even more entertaining postseason volleyball!

Oof.. 25-6, 25-16, 25-14.. Thats a big change for sure. Maybe thats not as good of a challenge as i thought. It appears that Moeller's toughest game to the state finals will be Regional Finals...

I think this is one of the most intriguing regionals. Fenwick is the favorite, but Carroll and Alter are no push overs. Per Ohioboysvolleyball.com Fenwick and Alter faceoff tonight. Should be interesting to see how that goes

Yeah, the Elite tournament was also day after Moeller's prom. I'm guessing that wasn't their best ball of the season.

And yeah, really sucks to be in the south region this year in D1 - 4 of the top 5 teams from this week's ranking reside there. Would have been nice to see them all at state. Same deal for D2 West - That only one of Fenwick, Carroll and Alter will make it to state sucks. But, that's the tournament. If you wanna be the champs, you gotta beat the best eventually. Just so happens that occassionally that's in your region instead of state. Whoever comes out of D2 west will be battle-hardened, I think. I know Badin is tough, but I think whoever comes out of the West is the favorite to win state.

Looks like Lasalle is heating up at the right time, taking Walnut to 5 last night. Badin is going to have to bring their A game to that final.

Great D1 final. Moe's middles, especially Patterson, were too much for Elder. Pickerington Central should be embarrassed by how hot it was in that gym. Ridiculous.

It was warm, borderline uncomfortable but from what I could tell - only went up for the D1 Championship Match - they did a fine job as the host. Hopefully now that things are back to normal for the most part, they can move back to Capital U, but it's tough for a HS venue to compete with what Capital has.

Based on what I saw at the D1 tourney this weekend, I'd say the semi-finals were Walnut Hills #4 -vs- Moeller #1 and St. X #3 -vs- Elder #2. The competition from the other regions was a big step down from the 4 south schools. I'd say that other than Elder, Moeller's closest competition was Walnut and Walnut and Elder were close.
 
Great weekend of volleyball. So happy for Fenwick and Pete! What Moeller did from where they were at the beginning of the season to now is ridiculous. 25-11 in a State Final game against a team like Elder is something else too. Patterson had an all time state performance. Absolutely dominated. Congrats to both Moe and Elder on great seasons. (How many is this now for MVB? 9?)

Would've been fun if Fenwick could've represented the West in D1 as possibly the #1 seed, as I think they could've given any team in the state a run for their money with the way they were playing down the stretch. Their 3 losses this year were Elder in 4, Badin in 5 and Moeller in 4. After that, didn't drop a match and never went past 4, including wins over Beavercreek, Centerville, St. X, Alter 3 times and Badin 2 times.
 
A few sophomore's making big contributions with top teams in D1. Will be fun to see how they continue to progress.

Think Fenwick was right there in the mix of best teams in the state with Moeller, X, and Elder. Congrats to them!

I watched the D2 final. It was a great match through the first 2 sets, then set 3 started. Olentangy started serving and scored 2, sideout and Fenwick served 4 straight aces (5-2) and it was all over. Olentangy was playing 7 player (with libero) and didn't even look to sub when the wheels started coming off.

Gilbert was definitely the highlight show of the tournament! It will be fun to see how well he does in college.
