Fort Loramie knocks off VASJ in D4 state semifinal

Villa Angela-St. Joseph had a magical run to the Division IV state final four in volleyball, nearly sweeping into a spot at Wright State University.

The magic ran out for the Vikings against a very talented Fort Loramie team on Nov. 6.

VASJ (20-8) — making its second straight appearance at Wright State University for the final four — fell to Fort Loramie in a state semifinal match, 3-0. The Vikings lost, 25-17, 25-23, 25-18, in the first game at the final four to end the season short of another state championship. VASJ won a state championship last in 2005, and was returning to Fairborn after finishing as state runner-up in 2013.

Senior outside hitter Toni Beuck led the way for VASJ with 8 kills and 15 digs. McKenna Walker finished with 7 kills and 3 digs for the Vikings. Rachel Smith had 24 assists for VASJ.

Fort Loramie was led by Kelly Turner and Ashley Pleiman on the attack offensively with 27 combined kills.
