The varsity volleyball team finished its season just a mere handful of points away from making the OHSAA Division II State Championship, playing its final game in the semifinal round where it fell short of defeating the eventual state champion, Bishop Fenwick. The number seven state-ranked Lancers battled back after losing the first set, taking the game to a full five sets (16-25, 25-17, 25-22, 23-25, 12-15). The young Lancer roster boasted just one senior in defensive specialist Katelyn Hanchin '20, whereas the opposing number one state-ranked Fenwick team had a total of eight seniors. 
Gilmour's efforts were led by a dominating force at the net in Kathryn Randorf '22, who totaled an astounding 22 kills on the night. Brinn MacLellan '21 and Anna Rarick '23 had 11 kills apiece. Other leading stat totals for Gilmour included Emmy Klika '21 with 28 digs and Ava Nestor '21 with 49 assists.
The Lancers concluded the season with an overall record of 21-7. It was the team's first trip to the Final Four at the Division II level.
