Eastwood, Stritch seasons end

ONTARIO — The East­wood vol­ley­ball team saw its sea­son come to an end in the Divi­sion II re­gional semi­fi­nals last night at On­tario High School.

The Eagles dropped just their fourth match of the sea­son. No. 1- ranked Parma Padua Fran­cis­can de­feated East­wood 25-6, 25-13, and 26-24 in the re­gional semi­fi­nal.

East­wood (23-4) won its fourth straight league cham­pi­on­ship and rose to a No. 12 rank­ing in the state polls.

The Eagles won the fi­nal two Subur­ban Lakes League cham­pi­on­ships and then won the North­ern Buck­eye Con­fer­ence the last two sea­sons.

East­wood had won six straight games head­ing into the re­gional semis.

But Parma Padua Fran­cis­can (23-2) proved to be too much as it ad­vances to the re­gional cham­pi­on­ship against Nor­walk (24-2) on Satur­day.

■ ELIDA — The im­pres­sive tour­na­ment run of Car­di­nal Stritch in the Divi­sion IV vol­ley­ball tour­na­ment ended at the hands of sixth-ranked New Wash­ing­ton Buck­eye Cen­tral Wed­nes­day night, as the Car­di­nals (18-9) fell 25-13, 25-17, 25-15 in a re­gional semi­fi­nal at El­ida High School.

Sara Turner-Smith led the Cards with 13 kills and 11 digs, and team­mate Briyanna Ax­tell added five kills in Stritch’s first ad­vance­ment to a re­gional since 1999. Buck­eye Cen­tral is 25-2.
