GAHANNA — Out of 43 Central District Division I volleyball teams, the Logan Lady Chiefs have parlayed an 11-8 record into both a solid No. 19 seed and a home first-round tournament match.
The Lady Chiefs host Westerville North (7-10), the No. 20 seed, in the opening round of the Central District tournament at 6 p.m. next Monday, Oct. 15, in Jim Myers Gymnasium.
It will be the first time the Purple & White have hosted a DI tourney tilt since being relocated to the Central District for DI volleyball tourney play several years ago. The Central District decided this season to play sectional matches and the first round of district play on the home court of the higher-seeded squad.
Logan coach Kira Brooks said the Lady Chiefs would like to see a big crowd come out and root them on against Westerville North.
The tournament draw was conducted Sunday afternoon at Gahanna-Lincoln High School.
The Lady Chiefs could also play a sectional final match at home — although, for that to happen, Teays Valley (0-13), the No. 41 seed, would have to upset seventh-seeded Olentangy (15-5) next Monday.
The Logan-Westerville North and Teays Valley-Olentangy survivors play a sectional final at the site of the highest seed at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, for a district tourney berth.
Southeastern Ohio Athletic League champion Chillicothe received a No. 14 seed and hosts No. 26 seed Pickerington Central on Tuesday, Oct. 16, with the winner either playing at No. 9 seed Hilliard Davidson or hosting No. 33 seed Columbus Marion-Franklin two nights later.
The Lady Chiefs host Vinton County Monday, Zane Trace Wednesday and Warren on Thursday to complete their regular season schedule.
