Then there were almost, but not quite, exactly none. It appears as of this writing that Goshen is a shoo-in to compete in the Division III state football playoffs. Williamsburg is still competing in Division IV volleyball. But the final survivors of Clermont County’s fall varsity sports teams were eliminated from tournament play last week.
Williamsburg’s Wildcats, champions of the Southern Buckeye Conference National Division, won the sectional championship by outlasting and wearing down Summit Country Day’s Silver Knights 24-26, 25-16, 25-9, 25-2. The sectional tournament took place at Williamsburg High School. The Blue and White’s overall record is 21-2.
The Division II Sectional Tournament also took place in Clermont County, at Goshen High School.
New Richmond’s Lions were knocked out by McNicholas’ Rockets 25-6, 25-15, 25-7.
Clermont Northeastern’s Rockets were nullified by Norwood’s Indians 25-13, 25-23, 25-18.
In regular-season action, Milford’s E-Gals were defeated by Reading’s Blue Devils 25-19, 11-25, 26-24, 25-21.
