Bulldog Update

By Cort Reynolds

ADA - The host Ada volleyball team bounced back from a first set loss to down feisty Pandora-Gilboa in four games during Div. III second round sectional volleyball action Thursday night.

 

The third-seeded Bulldogs defeated the ninth-seeded Rockets 25-27, 25-10, 25-19, 25-7 to improve to 16-7. P-G ended its season 7-16 after the defeat.

 

Ada senior standout Melina Woods led the victors to their eighth win in a row with 36 kills, 19 digs, two blocks and five aces.

 

The  Ohio Northern men's cross country team remained No. 19 in the sixth weekly United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association poll, released on Wednesday.

Northern moved up in the poll after a solid 12th place finish at the Principia (Ill.) Cowbell Classic Pre-National Meet last weekend.

Four Polar Bears scored goals as the No. 15-ranked Ohio Northern women's soccer team defeated Wilmington 4-0 on Saturday evening at Townsend Field.

The Polar Bears improve to 13-1-1 overall and 6-0-0 in the Ohio Athletic Conference, while the Quakers fall to 5-8-2, 1-4-1
