For the first time in its 38-year history, the Sandusky Bay Conference volleyball championship is being split three ways between Edison, Huron and Margaretta.
Each team needed a win Thursday in the conference finale to earn a share. Margaretta's three-game sweep of Perkins gave the Polar Bears their first SBC title since 2001.
Huron's three-game sweep of Port Clinton extended the Tigers dominance to 11 straight years of at least a share of the crown. It is the first time Huron has shared it since 2001.
Meanwhile, Edison's three-game sweep of Clyde ended a 17-year drought for the Chargers, dating back to 1993.
Margaretta 3, Perkins 0
At Perkins Twp., the Polar Bears won in three games, 25-21, 26-24, 25-12.
For Margaretta (15-6, 12-2 SBC), Shannon Coy had 24 kills while Katie Nesbitt had 12 kills and 26 assists. Whitney Strause had 18 assists while Ali James had 19 digs and Cheyenne Morris added seven kills.
"We avoided a letdown and were able to pull together against a very scrappy Perkins team," Margaretta coach Kathy Day said. " It was a nice finish to the SBC season and to share the championship is a great accomplishment for the kids."
Huron 3, Port Clinton 0
At Huron, the Tigers rolled to a three-game sweep, 25-6, 25-11, 25-14.

Samantha Wechter was 45-of-45 setting with 25 assists while Sydney Grendow added six assists. Taryn Graham had 13 digs and Hannah Figgins had 13.
Edison 3, Clyde 0
At Milan, the Chargers won in three games over Clyde, 25-14, 25-10, 25-11.

Chelsea Frankboner added eight kills and four blocks, Carmen Tinnel had six kills and six blocks and Susan Knight added 12 points, four kills and three blocks.
In the final SBC match of the 2009 season, Edison had a chance to clinch a share of the SBC title, but lost at Clyde.
"It was nice to get the job done this year," Edison coach Sean Hoover said. "It's a great accomplishment for these girls, most of whom played last year when we didn't close it out. They've worked hard to get where we are and deserve to be tri-champions.
"We came out energized and jumped on them right from the beginning and they really played well throughout the whole match. It's probably best we played all year."
