The volleyball team battled two of Ohio’s powerhouse teams on Saturday.

The Bolts started the day with Alter (ranked #1 in the region and ranked #1 in Ohio Division 2).  It has been a while since a team from our region has been able to defeat Alter but Northmont was able to do it this year.  The Thunderbolts started with a lead but Alter came storming back to tie the first set at 24-24.  The teams traded punches back and forth until Northmont was able to produce a huge block that fell in the corner to take the first set 31-29.  The battle continued in the second set until Abdihafid Abas crushed a kill to finish 25-23.  Northmont continued to struggle with focus in the first week of the season and dropped the third set 15-25 but the regained their composure and finished the win by taking the 4th set 25-18.

After an emotional battle with Alter, Northmont faced Westerville South, a state championship contender.  Westerville South has a really strong team which includes 9 seniors.  They have a very talented 6’6 setter surrounded but a strong group of hitters.  There quick offense was too much for Northmont to handle at this point in the season.  The Thunderbolts battled hard but dropped the match 25-23, 25-21, 25-20.

The season record is 3-1.
