• Region 3-8A final — Boca Raton d. Western 25-7, 25-10, 25-17: It was quite a run for the Western girls’ volleyball team, making its first appearance in the regional finals in over a decade, but the joyride reached its stop Saturday when the Wildcats ran into a powerhouse.
The Boca Raton Bobcats (29-1) beat host Western (18-7) in straight sets to advance to the state semifinals.
“That’s a team that’s well-coached, they’ve been playing together, they’re all club players,” Western coach Barry Sikorski said. “So it was like one cohesive unit out there. Everything we hit they got a touch on.”
A balanced Boca Raton attack saw four Bobcats register at least eight kills in the match.“We came out here blazing, and we got the job done,” Boca Raton coach Amanda Angermeier said. “We knew some spots that we could pick on a little bit, whereas we don’t really have any extreme weak points, and even our bench is very deep.”
Alexa Oblak and Amanda Medlock combined for 13 kills and nine digs in the losing effort.
• Region 4-3A final — Westminster Christian d. Calvary Christian 25-17, 25-20, 25-13: Junior outsider hitter Lindsay Foreman recorded team-highs of eight kills and nine digs for Calvary Christian (19-9). Junior libero Alexa Romagnolo contributed 12 digs, and junior defensive specialist Haley Toler added 19 assists in the loss.
“We exceeded expectations for us this year,” said Calvary Christian coach Dean Barboza, whose team graduated two Division I players last year. “For us to go back-to-back district champions and to make it further than our team has ever made it was a big accomplishment for us. I’m really proud of them.”
The Warriors (27-4) will face Orlando First Academy, which has won four state titles in a row, on Friday in Kissimmee.

Chaminade coach Jason Johnson, who had been 5-2 in elimination games against Ransom entering Saturday, gave the Raiders (28-2) credit.
“They played well, and we made our fair share of errors,” he said. “Some of that is them putting us in bad spots.”
