Yet again, the district round was the venue for a showdown between top 5 ranked volleyball teams in Division 4. Monday night, Mendon (fourth in the final coaches poll) was ousted by third-ranked Athens in the first round of district #116 at Colon. Athens came away with the sweep; 25-19, 25-11, 25-23. It’s the third straight year that Athens proved to be the road block for the Hornets.
Athens now plays Burr Oak in Wednesday’s 7 p.m. district semifinal. The other side of the bracket has Colon against Climax-Scotts at 5:30 p.m. For updated brackets for St. Joseph County schools, head here.
