Both of the Jonathan Alder seventh and eighth grade volleyball teams swept their way to championships in the school’s first year of competing in the Central Buckeye Conference (CBC).

The seventh grade volleyball team coached by Jim Eudaily, captured the CBC middle school championship as it defeated Benjamin Logan (25-19, 25-14). The Lady Pioneers entered the CBC tournament as the top seed. It defeated Springfield Shawnee (25-4, 25-8), before knocking off Indian Lake (25-12, 25-21) in the semifinal. In the championship against Benjamin Logan, Alder was just too much. The Lady Pioneers finished the season with a 16-3 record.

The eighth grade volleyball team coached by Olivia Schmidt captured the CBC middle school championship as it too defeated Benjamin Logan (25-2, 25-11) in the final of the CBC tourney. They topped Shawnee in the quarterfinal (25-6, 25-12), then rolled past Urbana in the semifinal (25-20, 25-14) earning a championship match with Benjamin Logan. The Jonathan Alder eighth graders finished their season with a perfect 19-0 record.
