VOLLEYBALL: The Lady Cavs Volleyball team will face Canal Winchester Saturday at 4pm. Canal took three of four sets from Lancaster, 25-17, 24-26, 25-20 and 25-20. Saturday's match is scheduled for Columbus East High School.
GIRLS SOCCER: Chillicothe will try to put last week behind them when they take to the pitch tonight at Mt. Logan's McVicker Field. The Cavs suffered back-to-back losses for the first time this season, first at Unioto and then last Thursday with Zane Trace. Tonight is another Chillicothe-Marietta matchup, only this time it's for a Sectional championship. First kick is 6pm.
VOLLEYBALL: The Lady Cavs Volleyball team used a marathon five set match to outlast Central Crossing 3-2.
Chillicothe dropped their first set 25-22 then took the second set 25-18. The third set went to the Cavs 33-31 and Central Crossing stayed alive with a 25-18 score to even the match at two sets apiece. The fifth set went to Chillicothe 18-16.
Cavs coach Bret Wrightsel said it was a “Super effort by everybody. I can think of so many plays where somebody stepped up and made a play. It was truly an all-around team effort.”
Alyssa Oates was a force in the match with 25 kills on 43 attempts with only 3 hitting errors. Maddi Glendening and Kali Kight had 10 and 7 kills respectively. Madison Moss had 25 assists and Hayley Robinson 15. Senior Marissa Webb was 23/26 from the serve line with 7 aces and she had 5 kills.

Central Crossing has nearly 250 more girls in its enrollment than Chillicothe.
With the win, the Cavs advanced to Saturday’s 4pm Sectional Final at Columbus East High School.
BOYS SOCCER: The Cavs' season came to a close at Marietta for a fifth consecutive year. The Tigers kept Chillicothe scoreless in a 4-0 decision in the Division 2 Sectional Semi Final.

Chillicothe begins post season play this Thursday night at McVicker Field at Mt. Logan with the winner of Tuesday’s match between Jackson and Marietta.
CROSS COUNTRY: Senior Audra Metzler and freshman Rachel Conaway finished the regular season with All-SEOAL status following their league meet performances at Jackson High School. The Cavs Girls team placed 4th and the Boys 5th. No individual times were reported.
The Chillicothe-Unioto battle for the Ross County Cup trophy was all Lady Tanks.
The Shermans reached the Regionals last year and Unioto's Morgan Gumm says a return trip would suit her fine. "We want to do what we did last year, try to win Regionals."
Tuesday night against Chillicothe, Unioto looked like the form they had last October before having their season end in Fairborn, Ohio.
The Cavaliers entered the contest 11-1, outscoring their opponents 48-8. The Shermans were 7-2-3 with their losses coming to state powerhouse teams from DeSales and Bishop Hartley.
Jenny Campbell found the back of the net at 27:19 in the first half to break the ice and Unioto rolled to a 6-1 victory.
Campbell's goal was followed up just 3 minutes later by Morgan Gumm's long distance shot from about 25 yards out for a 2-0 lead.
The Cavaliers, who hadn't allowed a goal in six straight matches, were playing on their heels most of the first 40 minutes. In fact, Chillicothe failed to make a shot on goal for nearly 9 minutes.
The Cavs had an opportunity with 24 seconds remaining on a penalty kick by Casey Crow which was stopped by goal keep Ashley Flautt.
Prior to that though, it was all Unioto. Kyleen Muirhead put in a header at 1:39 and Campbell chipped in another shot at :51 and the Shermans closed out the half with a 4-0 lead.
"I'm pretty disappointed." said Cavs coach Zach Breth. "We came out and didn't play our style of play, we weren't patient, we were just a different team tonight."
Chillicothe started the scoring less than three minutes into the second half when Lindsey Schobeloch kicked in a ball that got through Flautt on a corner kick from Crow.
Then came what Breth called the "ol' after goal let down". Freshman Kaylah Peele popped a point blank goal to put Unioto back up by four, 5-1.
"That fifth goal was just fantastic..." said Breth, "it was the kind of goal, that should be scored. We had momentum, we had the ball, we started to play our style of play, we scored the goal, and then they came right back at us."
As for the quick start, Shermans coach Mark Williamson hopes his kids find that kind of magic again.
"Historically we're kind of a slow team, we build up, get confident and play better as the game goes on. Tonight we were forunate to get some in early and finish it off."
Unioto has battled injury from the start of the season, losing their leading scorer Erin Bane with a knee injury. But Williamson adds "We came in to it with a little bit of a chip on our shoulder, I'll be honest with you... We lost Erin Bahne our leading scorer in the second game of the season. We had some kids step up tonight, Kayla Peele scored a goal, she's a freshman Emily Corcoran played a lot of good minutes for us, and Claire Bechie... it's coming together, and all the adversity we've been through, they're using that to their advantage."
"This is a really big game on our schedule for us." said Flautt. "It was really important for us to win this game tonight."
Unioto (8-2-3) will head to Lancaster Thursday night and finish the regular season with Jackson Saturday.
The Cavs are home with Zane Trace Thursday. The Pioneers, who tied Unioto earlier in the season, are ranked 9th in the Division 3 standings.
