Jackson was powerful, all ladies played very well, Perry hustled, but was overmatched in all phases. Right now, getting 20 points against the Lady Polar Bears will be an accomplishment.


Congratulations to both teams and all coaches for a classy game, and wonderful Federal League sportsmanship.

“I’m just glad to get the first one out of the way,” Jackson coach Jeff Walck said. “You never know what you’re going to see at the beginning of the year, but I really liked our cohesiveness.

“We can spread the ball around from antenna to antenna this year. Paige had 18 kills, but it didn’t seem like we were depending on her all the time.”

Kristin Cardwell dished out 28 assists for Jackson. No statistics were available for Perry.

It's a secret who's on the Varsity Team except for the youngladies mentioned in the Preview. Maybe some parent will make a roster up for the games like in the past. McKinley tonight will it be under or over in 30 minutes?

I was wondering did you talk to that Perry Mom after the match on Monday?

Perry is disappointed in its early play, naturally. They were beaten by a better team in Jackson, they felt they were ready for N Canton. obviously not. The lady Vikings deserve credit for a straight set win , on the road. They are athletic, and extremely well Coached.


I predict Jackson will win 3 straight at 25-18, 25-17 and 25-15 next week, but I agree with CC Runner, N Canton is second best in the league, certainly for now.

Good luck to all, good health to all, staying injury free is my hope for each and every player and team.

go Bears !

I wasn't in that thread to see. Still good to call to his attention...don't you think?

Especially since he was so insistent about it despite what everybody told him.

Why do you say they were beaten by a better team in the loss to Jackson and not also use the same terminology with Hoover's victory over the Panthers?

It is like your saying the Vikings were not the better team.

Your giving credit to them seemed like yes they won...but....

Go Vikings knock off the Bears next week!

That would really shake up Darksider_99 and Its all good!

How will I be able tell who you two are at the match next week?..

CC Runner,

Is it true that one of N Canton's star players is injured and can't play for awhile? If true, that is a shame, both for that young lady, and her parents, team and Coaches. These ladies put so much effort into training and conditioning, all of us at Jackson wish her well, and a full and speedy recovery. Health is more important than winning or losing.

We were hoping to play at full strength, all ladies playing on both teams.

We are truly sorry to hear about this, and hope that she gets better quickly.

CCRunner4815 were you at the match tonight? If you were not here is what happened in North Canton:
Hoover Freshman team won.
The Jackson JV beat Hoover in 2. Jackson had size and Hoover only had 1 tall player So #14. The crowd was not what people thought it would be but that soon changed.
Now it was time to see the Undefeated Jackson Polar Bears vs Hoover. Well from what I see here high atop the gym Jackson looks tall, athletic, and well coached but again this is just warm ups. Typical rival game nerves and TERRIBLE REFS!!!. Yes I was screaming. Game #1 was back and forth until Jackson pulled away. Then Game#2 started. Well one team started Jackson and Hoover lets just say if you would have told me that the score would be 19 to 2. I would have said that's no moon. But it happened and Jackson flex their muscle all over NC. Hoover never recovered and it was over at 8. Jackson is a work in progress moving forward. They are fun to watch both on the floor and off. I can't wait for Hoover to come to Jackson should be fun.

CCRunner4815 were you at the match tonight? If you were not here is what happened in North Canton:
Hoover Freshman team won.
The Jackson JV beat Hoover in 2. Jackson had size and Hoover only had 1 tall player So #14. The crowd was not what people thought it would be but that soon changed.
Now it was time to see the Undefeated Jackson Polar Bears vs Hoover. Well from what I see here high atop the gym Jackson looks tall, athletic, and well coached but again this is just warm ups. Typical rival game nerves and TERRIBLE REFS!!!. Yes I was screaming. Game #1 was back and forth until Jackson pulled away. Then Game#2 started. Well one team started Jackson and Hoover lets just say if you would have told me that the score would be 19 to 2. I would have said that's no moon. But it happened and Jackson flex their muscle all over NC. Hoover never recovered and it was over at 8. Jackson is a work in progress moving forward. They are fun to watch both on the floor and off. I can't wait for Hoover to come to Jackson should be fun.
Congrats to the Polare Bears on the win!

They deserve to be at the top of the league rankings with the victory over the Vikings.

Jackson volleyball team sweeps Hoover in three sets

By Jim Thomas

North Canton-Jackson High School’s Brooke Bailey had been to the Hoover High School gym before Thursday night’s Federal League volleyball match against the Vikings.

“I was actually really excited because I always came to watch them,” the freshman Bailey said of the Polar Bears-Vikings rivalry. “I always wanted to play on the court, and tonight I got to do what I wanted to do.”

Bailey and sophomore Stephanie Spencer pretty much did what they wanted in Jackson’s 25-20, 25-11, 25-15 victory over Hoover. The two 6-foot outside hitters combined for 25 kills and choked off seemingly every Vikings chance to score on their attack.

“I guess today we were just really on our game,” Spencer said. “We saw the block and hit where they were not.”

Spencer and Bailey were fantastic in putting down balls and stopping Hoover rallies. Spencer slammed 14 kills, 12 on the Vikings’ attack.

Bailey had 11 kills, three stopping any Hoover momentum from building.

With 6-1 All-Ohioan Paige Hill and Jen Slogar dominating the middle of the Jackson court, setter Kristin Cardwell running a quick-hitting offense, and freshman Kelly Klimo serving liners, it was easy to see why Jackson’s offense is so explosive.

Klimo dished up 14 serve points, including two aces, Hill added 11 kills and five blocks, Slogar had five kills and Cardwell made it click with 30 assists.

While Jackson had three in double-digit kills, senior outside hitter Kelli Howard led Hoover with eight. The end result was the Polar Bears’ attack outscored the Vikings offense 41-15 and North Canton’s only leads came at 3-2 and 4-3 in Game 1.

“We tried to key on Paige,” Hoover head coach Mia Thomas said after falling to 6-2 overall and 2-1 in the league. “Certainly we know she’s a good hitter. We worried about the outsides, but we were really trying to stop (Hill).

“We didn’t do it in the second or third games,” Thomas added, “so that was disappointing.”

Hoover came out strong but couldn’t finish that way. The Vikings’ defense kept Game 1 close before Bailey had a kill and Slogar two to make it 17-12 en route to taking the opener.

The second game was over in three Jackson services. Karlie DiRuzza served up six points helped by three Hoover errors to make it 8-2. Klimo came off the bench and reeled off 10 points as Hill took over the net with four kills and two blocks to make it 19-3. That was it for Game 2, and Jackson jumped out to a 4-1 lead in Game 3 and hung on to improve to 4-0 overall and in the league.

“We made a couple of defensive changes and put Kelly in to serve,” Jackson head coach Jeff Walck said. “She ended up with 14 points and two aces. Her serves are aggressive and she kept them off balance. She made a big difference.”

So did Spencer and Bailey with Hoover working on slowing down Hill.

“We knew if we ended up getting out of system we would have to feed those two athletes,” Walck said. “They came through for us.

“They practiced hard (Wednesday), and it paid off big.”
