Girls Division IV Ohio State Championship Game, 2012

I had the opportunity to travel down to Dayton, OH over the weekend and watch the state championship game. It was a tremendous feat for such a small school as Central Christian located in Kidron, OH to make it to the state championship game. With the size of the school less than half the size of any other team in the tournament, it was like David and Goliath with every team they faced. Despite the odds, the girls fought extremely hard; first defeating Villa Angela - St. Joseph in a nail biting 5 game match to get out of Districts and into Regionals. Once in Regionals, there greatest foe was TCC, who knocked them out of the tournament the year before. With there eyes set on not allowing them to do it again, the girls after a sloppy first game came back strong and defeated the defending state runner up in four games leading them to the State Tournament for the first time since 1992. An extraordinary feat for a school that has around 50 girls total in the entire high school. This wasn't the end of their battles, at the semi-finals they played an exhausting game to five and pulled the last game off winning by a final score of 17-15. Then in the state championship game the girls did exceptionally well but didn't have quite enough to defeat the powerhouse team who has made it to the championship game several times in the last 5 years. You all did great and have nothing to be disappointed about, you fought hard and gave it your all!! Congratulations to the 2012 State Runner Up, Kidron Central Christian Volleyball Team!!!!!!!

It was a lot of fun watching and shooting the action from court side this weekend.
