Warriors claim Hoover Bowl IV

SYCAMORE — The Hoover Bowl title is staying with Mohawk.

Eric Hoover’s Warriors defended their Hoover Bowl crown — unofficially named in honor of the family of coaches who guide the three teams — by beating brother Sean’s Edison Chargers 25-22, 25-20 and mother Nancy’s Old Fort Stockaders 25-18, 25-19.

Old Fort edged Edison 25-23, 25-27 in the other match.

The annual get-together started in 2015, marking the first time all three Hoovers had faced each other on the court.

Edison took the title that first year and Old Fort did so in 2016, followed by back-to-back crowns by Mohawk.

Mohawk’s wins Saturday came from solid individual efforts.

Madi Chester (2 blocks) tallied 21 kills and 17 digs for the Warriors (2-1), Alexa Konkle had 47 assists, 19 digs and four kills, and Aubrey Margraf (2 aces) came up with 33 digs.

Kaylee Ward (2 blocks) added 17 kills and 11 digs, Ellie Shaw had 10 digs, Emma Myers-Huffman turned in eight kills, seven digs and three blocks and Paityn Clouse (2 blocks) drilled eight kills.

Old Fort got 35 assists, 12 digs and three kills from Madison Guth, 23 digs and seven kills from Savannah McCoy, and 22 digs from Ashlyn Magers (2).

Jenna Clouse drilled 15 kills and three blocks for the Stockaders (3-1), MarcQue Harris (2 aces) came up with 13 digs, Morgan Miller had 11 digs and four kills, Grace Wasserman hammered seven kills and four blocks and Faith Williams lined three kills.

Lexie White nearly had a double-double Saturday to key Calvert’s 25-17, 25-17, 25-17 win against Seneca East.

White turned in 10 digs and nine kills for the Senecas.

Emma White backed her with 17 assists and four aces, Sophie Burtis tossed up 12 assists, Shelby Hemminger had 12 digs, Ashlyn Jones smacked eight kills and six aces and Zoe Meyer belted seven kills and six blocks.

Tornadoes remain undefeated

Addison Conti and unbeaten Columbian were too much for Upper Sandusky Saturday.

Conti served five aces, smashed five kills, and dished 19 assists as the Tornadoes eased by Upper Sandusky, 25-10, 25-18, 25-21.

The Tornadoes’ Rylie Roggow registered four aces, eight kills and five blocks, while teammate Hunter Breidenbach added 12 digs. Emily Davis served five aces and lined 11 kills.
