Vincent - Warren High gave it its best spike in defeat.

The fourth-seeded Warriors dropped a nail-biting 3-2 decision to the visiting and fifth-seeded Vinton County Vikings in an OHSAA Division II sectional volleyball match Wednesday night.

“They played a good game tonight but fell short in that fifth set,” said WHS head coach Michelle Tyo, whose netters won the first and fourth sets 25-22 and 25-12, but lost the second (14-25), third (28-30) and fifth sets (9-15).

“Once again, it’s been hard to get our confidence up,” Tyo said. “With the last couple of losses, my girls, it seems just couldn’t get it back.”

Warren (13-10) exited the campaign with four straight match setbacks.

Vinton County,16-7 on the season, advances to the next round of the sectional tournament and is expected to play top-seeded Unioto Saturday.

“Vinton County has a good team,” Tyo said. “They’re pretty solid this year.”

Williamstown - Bethany Arnold was a force at the net on Senior Night.

The Williamstown middle hitter had a single-match career-high 26 kills as the Yellowjackets outslugged visiting Warren, 25-15, 21-25, 25-22, and 25-23, in prep volleyball action Monday evening.

Arnold’s previous high was 24 kills against Parkersburg Catholic.

“We do rely on Beth a lot,” said Williamstown head coach Rachelle Cole. “We moved Kayla Bauman opposite her, and she’s a pretty heavy hitter also. But the other three — Brittney (Hooper), Skyler (Chancellor), and Faith (Hoosier) — they’re playing exceptional now, too. I don’t want to take anything away from them, either.”

Bauman added 14 kills, Hoosier 11, Chancellor eight, and Hooper six for the Yellowjackets, who improved their record to 23-9-2 overall.

“Williamstown was hitting the ball well tonight,” said Warren boss Michelle Tyo.

Williamstown freshman setter Lakyn Joy finished with 37 assists, while libero Gracie Graham had 21 digs. Jillian Modesitt chipped in with 15 digs, and Chloe Hooper had eight.

Vincent - The Warren Warriors left their damp and muddy home pitch Monday evening with an 11-0 score on the board against Portsmouth West.

With the victory, Warren advanced in the Division II sectional tournament. It will play again at 5 p.m. Thursday against second-seeded Jackson.

The Warriors’ ability to create options for each other in the midfield and on the attack was seen when the first goal of the match was taken.

Senior midfielder Matt Goodman was able to strike the ball with pace from a far out distance and the ball found its way to the back of the net to make the score 1-0 in the first half.

“I just had a lot of space and shot it,” said Goodman. “It was not fun playing in these conditions because we would try and dribble but just lose the ball, but we got a win so that’s good.”

Mariettta - Senior Night was a special evening for Marietta High’s fab five.

Veterans’ Vanessa Wilson, Natalie Brooks, Tia Jarvis, Morgan Connolly, and Carlie Hamilton each was instrumental in helping the Tigers sweep Warren High, 25-13, 25-17, and 25-13, in prep volleyball action at Sutton Gymnasium Thursday night.

“The girls came to play,” said MHS coach Ron Kidder. “We’re a hitting team, and we hit the ball, passed and served well, and I think in all aspects of the game, we played well. If we lose, it’s because we’re swinging at the ball.”

Marietta capped regular-season play with an 18-4 overall record, while Warren fell to 13-7.

“Warren’s a good team, and we knew that,” Kidder said. “We’re never going to take them lightly.

“We wanted this, because it’s the seniors’ last home game. and it means a lot to the seniors — and they worked and played hard. They’ve earned it. It’s what you put in the offseason that gets you here.”

Marietta - Ethan Yost assisted Shane Gardner for the game-winning goal Thursday evening to give Warren a 2-1 “Senior Night” win over rival Marietta.

The Warriors improved to 6-8-1 while the Tigers fell to 7-5-1. Marietta defeated Warren, 5-0, earlier in the year in Devola, but the Warriors got their revenge Thursday.

“It was a good finish for the kids,” said Warren head coach Ekrem Eksi.

“First half, we were a much better team, but the second half we got tired and Marietta started coming to us.”

The Warriors’ Matt Goodman put in the first goal of the match on a corner kick midway through the first half and took that lead into halftime.

Eleven minutes into the second half, Marietta’s Jake Craven tied things up when his direct kick found the back of the net. That was all Warren keeper Bryar Powell surrendered in the match, notching four saves on the Tigers’ five shots on goal.

Ten minutes after Marietta tied it, Warren retook the lead when Yost’s cross wound up in front of Gardner, who booted it past MHS keeper Justin LaBarre for a 2-1 advantage.

“First goal, we gave up a bad corner,” said Marietta head coach Todd Morris. “Second goal, we let the guy go unmarked. We just need to be better than that.

Wheeling - Wheeling Park senior Ronnie Saunders competed in the 2017 OVAC Cal Pokas Cross Country Championship as part of the ‘open race.’

It wasn’t because he wasn’t a good enough runner to earn a spot in the Patriots’ top seven. He was sick. He had been diagnosed — earlier that summer — with Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis.

The open race at the OVAC was one of just two meets he ran.

He was fully cleared late in track season and finished as a silver medalist in the Class AAA state meet’s 3200 meter run. He hasn’t slowed down since.

Vincent - Brandon Simoniette rolled right and didn’t stop until he reached paydirt.

The Warren senior quarterback’s 33-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter proved to be the game-winner as the Warriors rallied to defeat visiting Crooksville, 20-14, in prep football action Saturday.

“It was going to be a pass, but you’ve got to make a play when the receivers aren’t open,” Simoniette said. “It just so happened that I was able to scramble and get to the end zone.”

Simoniette finished with 62 rushing yards on 11 carries, and also completed 11 of 22 passes for 127 yards and one TD of 38 yards to sophomore Evan Gandee. Gandee had five receptions for 87 yards.

“Evan Gandee’s a great receiver,” Simoniette said. “He’s somebody that you can put the ball anywhere near him, and he’s going to catch it.”

Vincent - One week after narrowly missing out on their first win since the fifth game of the 2016 season, the Warren Warriors hope to snap their 20-game losing streak Saturday afternoon when they host the Crooksville Ceramics with a 3:30 kickoff.

The Warriors fell to Union Local 19-13 last week as their fourth-quarter comeback bid came up six points short.

First-year head coach Dan Day will look to sophomore quarterback Kurt Taylor to lead his team against a Crooksville team that is 1-4 on the season after edging the Morgan Raiders 22-14 last week.

Taylor had a strong showing against Union Local as he completed 19-of-34 pass attempts for 236 yards and a touchdown.

Brandon Simoniette continues to be Taylor’s favorite target as he hauled in 10 receptions last week for 103 yards.

The Warrior defense has been improving week after week as after surrendering an average of 55 points in their first three games, they have allowed 57 in their last two.
