The postseason seems to be working well for Johnston High School athletics.
The Dragon volleyball (25-8) team swept Ames High School, 25-18, 25-13, 25-17, Thursday evening in the Class 5-A volleyball regional semifinal.
The match, which took place in Johnston, was the third meeting of the teams this fall.
On Sept. 4 the schools met in Ames, where the Dragons bested the Little Cyclones 3-2.
On Sept. 29 the teams met at Urbandale High school during a tournament. Ames took the victory 1-2 that day.
The Dragons next play at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the regional final against Cedar Falls in Marshalltown.
If the Dragons are victorious Tuesday they would earn the first trip to state since 2008.
