        Turpin, St. Ursula, Roger Bacon had a chance to win state championships Saturday — and all did.

        In volleyball, St. Ursula claimed the Division I title 15-12, 10-15, 15-11 win over rival Ursuline, and Roger Bacon won the Division II crown 15-8, 15-5 over two-time defending champ Galion at Wright State University.

        The Turpin boys soccer team repeated as Division II state champion, beating Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit 2-1 in the final at Crew Stadium in Columbus.

        St. Ursula's title was its seventh in volleyball but first in Division I. The Bulldogs gained revenge for two regular-season losses to the Lions.

        “In 21 years at St. Ursula, no team has beaten us three times in the same season,” St. Ursula coach Julie Perry said.

        Roger Bacon had lost in the Division II final the past two years.

        “It hasn't sunk in yet,” coach Carol Schawe said.

        Turpin won the boys Division II soccer final for the second straight year; it beat Walsh Jesuit 4-0 for the championship last year. It's the Spartans' third title since 1986.

        “People who didn't know anything about us said, "Who is Turpin?' Now everyone in the state knows,” Spartans coach John Basalyga said.
