For the first time since 2005, the Southern volleyball team sits atop the Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division. The Lady Tornadoes, who finished 13-3 in the conference, shared the 2015 title with Trimble and Waterford. The Lady Tomcats had a chance to claim the league outright Thursday night, but were upset by Federal Hocking, which finished fourth in the league with a 12-4 mark. The Lady Tomcats won their first 11 TVC Hocking matches, but lost three of their last five. Southern — which went 1-1 against Federal Hocking, Trimble and Waterford this season — has nine seniors and six juniors on this year’s squad. The Lady Tornadoes won their final five TVC Hocking games this season, including a victory that handed Trimble its first loss. SHS has also won TVC Hocking titles in 1995, 1996 and 2005.
