Madison will be making yet another regional appearance in volleyball after winning the Division II district crown Saturday at Seneca East High School. The Lady Rams had to come from behind to defeat a very tough Norwalk squad in 5- games, a team they weren't surprised to meet in tournament.

Madison first year head coach Brian Votaw had anticipated a district championship showdown with the Lady Truckers for the better part of the season. Votaw says he knew if both teams played the way that they were capable, that a postseason meeting was very likely.

But the road doesn't get any easier for the 24-2 Lady Rams as the enter the Ontario regional. Madison will now face a familiar foe in Padua Franciscan, who are ranked #1 in the Buckeye state, regardless of division. The Lady Bruins are 24-1 on the season, with the teams only loss coming in a 5-set thriller at Mentor Lake Catholic in early October.

Although Padua Franciscan will certainly be a tough task for Madison on Thursday, the team says they have seen them before and will be ready for the challenge.

Stud junior setter Katie Wagner, who leads the team with a ridiculous 873 assists, traveled with the varsity the last time they made it to regionals and says she knows what to expect. Wagner says the team knows "how crucial these games are" and that they need "to come in focused" on Thursday night.

Fellow junior Ali Brown says the squad will rely on their much improved team chemistry against the Bruins. Brown believes they wouldn't have even made it this far without solid team chemistry and thinks having participated in regional competition as a freshman will help her Thursday night.
