It’s been a wild couple days of volleyball across Nebraska, but the state-tournament field is set in Class A while the Sweet 16 Saturday matches in Classes B, C-1, C-2, D-1 and D-2 are now set as well.
All seven of the top-seeded teams in Class A districts won last night and Papillion-LaVista South got the wild card to set the state tournament field. The only drama in Class A was upset-minded Bellevue West taking a 2-0 lead on #3-seed Omaha Marian before the Crusaders battled back to win in five sets to earn their 18thstraight trip to state.
Below is the UNOFFICIAL schedule for the first-round of the Class A state tournament next Thursday at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
1:30 p.m. – (7) Millard South (25-13) vs. (2) Lincoln Pius X (34-2)
3:30 p.m. – (6) Papillion-LaVista (25-13) vs. (3) Omaha Marian (26-11)
