Madison cruised at home against Ashland Thursday night to win a share of the OCC championship. The Rams won in straight sets, 25-17, 25-14, 25-10, to tie Orrville for the league title with a 12-2 record in the OCC.

Rams first year head coach Brian Votaw says the team made two goals at the beginning of the season, to win an OCC championship and make a deep tournament run. He says the team accomplished the first goal on the list and now they've got to work on their second goal.

Even though Votaw and his team were certainly happy to win a share of the conference crown, they said it was a little bittersweet having to share it with the only team that beat them all season.

Votaw says he told his girls, "This is one time we don't like to share." He says that most of the time sharing is nice, but this would not be one of those times.

"It's bittersweet, but I can't ask for much more." Rams senior Maggie Andrews says. She added that it "really means a lot to do it on senior night."

"We wanted to win it all by ourselves, but we'll share it." Says senior Liz Sutter. She says the Rams team chemistry has been "really good" this season and that she has a goal to win a state title in her final season in a Madison uniform.

Votaw says he likes the teams chances to make a deep run, as long as they stay focused and healthy.

The Rams finish their regular season at 20-2. They will play Clear Fork in the first round of the state tournament, a team they beat twice during the regular season.
