OTTOVILLE — Crestview has had major success throughout the years in the OHSAA volleyball tournament, while Jefferson is trying to build a legacy in the second season.
Those two teams — both with a lot of youthful players — met up Tuesday night in Ottoville’s L.W. Heckman Gymnasium in Division IV sectional action.
The Lady Knights got off well in all three sets and the Lady Wildcats couldn’t quite answer as Crestview got the 25-18, 25-15, 25-14 sweep.
“That’s been our pattern lately; getting off to slow starts and then fighting from behind. We seem to lack early intensity,” Jefferson coach Joy Early noted. “I felt we moved pretty well most of the match except when we fell behind early in the first and second sets but it’s hard to fight from behind the whole time. Still, I like how we battled and fought back; we made a game of it in the first.”
For Crestview mentor Tammy Gregory, the good starts were needed.
