The varsity boys volleyball team traveled to Northmont High School last night to take on the Lakota East Thunderhawks in the OHSBVAN Division I West Region Semifinals. The Elks came into the match as the #4 seed while East entered as the #3 seed.
In the opening set, the Elks came out on fire, built a big lead and cruised to a 25-14 win to take a 1-0 lead. The Thunderhawks rallied back to win the second set, 25-23, and make the match a best of three for a spot in the regional finals. The Elks responded and won sets three and four, 25-21 and 25-19 to win the match, 3-1.
Now 11-13 on the year, the Elks return to Northmont High School on Saturday night where they will take on the host Thunderbolts in an 8:00 PM match. The winner earns a trip to the State quarterfinals next weekend at Capital University in Bexley.
