COLUMBUS — Senate President Keith Faber (R-Celina) honored the Division IV state champion Jackson Center High School girls volleyball team on the floor of the Ohio Senate this week.
The team earned the state title Nov. 12 in a 3-game victory over New Philadelphia’s Tuscarawas Central Catholic.
Jackson Center head coach Kim Metz was also named the Division IV Coach of the Year after leading the Lady Tigers to a perfect 30-0 record this season, the only team in Ohio to finish unbeaten.
“It’s my honor to host the champion Jackson Center volleyball team and Coach Metz at the Statehouse,” said Faber. “These young women are champions on and off the court, and they’ve made their community and school proud.”
The 2016 state title marks the second in a row for the Lady Tigers.
