Just as a season ago, the Green Meadows Conference championship will be decided by a winner-take-all battle of league unbeatens as Tinora and Fairview picked up wins against solid county opponents in Hicksville and Ayersville, respectively, on Tuesday.

Defending league champion Fairview (16-5, 6-0 GMC) made quick work of the visiting Pilots, allowing as many points in the first two sets combined as it did in the third set of a 25-13, 25-9, 25-22 rout to stay unblemished in conference play. Paige Ricica had 12 kills on 31-38 hitting with three aces and 15 digs for the Apaches while Kelly Crites paced the Black and Gold with 15 kills and 15 digs. Maci Froelich’s seven kills led the attack for Ayersville, which clinched at least a share of third place in head coach Alicia Kalik’s first season in charge.

At Hicksville, Tinora dispatched the Aces on senior night with a 25-17, 25-11, 25-18 victory over Hicksville. Makenna Reetz and Quinn Horn each had 17 kills to lead the way for the Rams, with Horn tallying 11 digs. Emma Cramer had 12 digs and five aces while Brooklyn Reineke had 38 assists.

The 2020 league title was decided by a 25-22, 18-25, 25-20, 25-19 Fairview victory in Sherwood that snapped a four-year title streak by Tinora and earned the Apaches their first crown since 2001. Fairview has not won back-to-back volleyball titles in the program’s history.

In other action on the hardwood, Archbold completed a perfect run through the NWOAL slate with a three-set win at Bryan, 25-17, 25-8, 25-8, to finish 7-0 in league matches for the 24th league title in school history and the second straight crown.

Meanwhile, Hilltop secured at least a share of its first Buckeye Border Conference volleyball title since 2004 by knocking off Stryker, 25-14, 25-14, 25-12. The league unbeaten Cadets (16-5, 6-0) were led by 22 kills and 10 digs from Gabby Rodriguez while Mia Hancock had six kills and two aces. Hilltop can clinch the outright title with a win Thursday at Holgate in its regular season finale.
