VOLLEYBALL WINS REGIONAL TITLE

VOLLEYBALL

The fifth-ranked Roncalli girls volleyball team defeated top-ranked Yorktown last Saturday night to win the Class 4A Regional title at Greenfield-Central. Earlier in the day, Roncalli topped seventh-ranked Brownsburg in a comeback, five-set win in the regional semifinal, winning the final three sets after dropping the first two.

“I could not be prouder of the fight and grit these girls had throughout all nine sets today against two very talented teams,” said head coach Christina Erazmus. “We knew we had all the pieces, we just needed to put them together and we did at just the right time.”

The 2021 regional title is the program’s 13th overall and first since 2014. This year’s title is the program’s second regional title since moving to Class 4A in 2011. With two wins last weekend, the team raised its record to 28-5. Roncalli travels to Jasper to face 10th-ranked Castle (30-2) in Saturday’s semi-state (Oct. 30). The match is set for an approximate start time of 5:30 p.m., following the conclusion of the 2A Semi-State game. The semi-state winner will advance to the Class 4A state final on Saturday, November 6 at Worthen Arena on the campus of Ball State University.
