The Lady Namers had a tremendous season, finishing with a 19-3 regular season record. They were crowned Great Lakes Conference Champions with an undefeated conference record. They took that momentum into the playoffs – held at Holy Name – and were able to get by Bay and Rocky River in the district semifinals and finals, respectively, to become Northeast District Champions. The team traveled to Lexington High School for Regionals, where they defeated Oak Harbor and Willard, winning each time in three straight sets to become Regional Champions and booking their ticket to the Nutter Center for the Final Four!
