VASJ, Kidron Central Christian to square off again for volleyball district title

There is only one more roadblock between Villa Angela-St. Joseph and a return trip to the regional tournament at Solon – a familiar opponent the Vikings have seen plenty of the past several district finals.

VASJ (17-7) will face Kidron Central Christian at 1 p.m. on Oct. 25 in the Division IV Medina district championship. The Vikings rolled over Mogadore in straight sets in the district semis on Oct. 23, 25-14, 25-9, 25-12. KCC defeated Rittman in the other semi.

It is a rematch of last year's district final at Medina. VASJ dominated KCC in 2013, winning by scores of 25-10, 25-19 and 25-12. In 2012, it was KCC who knocked the Vikings out of the postseason by winning, 3-2, in the district title match.

The VASJ-Kidron Central winner will advance to a regional semifinal on Oct. 29 at Solon High School vs. Windham. The Bombers won the Cortland District title to advance to the sweet 16 at Solon.
