Volleyball Draws 4th Seed, Will Face Perry-Green Winner Oct. 21
The Louisville Leopards Volleyball team drew the 4th Seed at the DI Uniontown District Tournament Draw Sunday. Louisville will have a bye first round and face the winner of the 8th Seeded Perry Panthers and the 10th Seeded Green Bulldogs. The Leopards Sectional Final match will be held at Lake High School on Wednesday, October 21 at 6:00 PM.
The Leopards are currently 17-3 on the season, while the Panthers are 6-11 and the Bulldogs are 4-10. Back on September 22, Perry won at Green 25-15, 25-13, 25-16. The two potential Louisville opponents will meet again on October 15 at Perry and then in the Sectional Semifinals at Lake on October 19.
The Leopards and Panthers share two common opponents in North Canton Hoover & Lake. Louisville opened up the season with a four set win at Hoover on August 22 and proceed to sweep Lake at home on August 27.
The Panthers were swept by the Vikings on the road and also lost in four sets against Hoover at PHS. Perry also lost at Lake in four sets earlier this season. No score was reported for the Panther’s recent home match against the Blue Streaks.
The Leopards and Bulldogs also share the same two common opponents. Green has been swept by Hoover once and Lake twice this season so far. Louisville last competed against Perry in the McKinley Invitational. The Leopards won the September 27, 1997 match 14-16, 15-7, 15-7. The only time the two squads met in the state tournament (in known history) came in the 1983 season when the Panthers swept the match.
The only known meeting between Louisville and Green came in the DII Fairless Sectional Semifinals on October 20, 1992. The Leopards defeated the Bulldogs 15-9, 15-8 in that match.
If Louisville wins their Sectional Final match they will face #2 Seed Canfield, #5 North Canton Hoover, or #6 GlenOak in the District Semifinals. Jackson drew the top seed and resides on the other side of the bracket along with #3 Seed Boardman.
The Leopards are 7-8 in tournament play since entering Division I back in 2007. View Louisville Leopards Volleyball Tournament History
