ELYRIA, Ohio — The Holy Name girls basketball team continued its run in the Division II playoffs, defeating Vermilion, 63-33 to advance to the district final in the Elyria district.

Corrigan led the way with 19 points, while Cook dominated down low with 17. Leading Vermilion was Jessica Burger, who finished the game with eight points.
