Volleyball teams vie for semistate berths

In a pair of Class 3A volleyball regional matches tonight, two area ranked teams will face a pair of opponents who are also ranked.

No. 5 Bellmont (31-5) will play host to No. 2 Delta (30-4), while No. 6 Concordia (26-7) travels to play at No. 7 Fairfield (29-7). Both matches are set for 7 p.m.

The Falcons beat the Cadets 3-1 in last year’s regional.

“I don’t care what year, (Fairfield) is always going to be in your face and be competitive,” Concordia coach Trish Miller said. “It’s going to be cutthroat, and everybody’s laying it all out.”

In 4A, No. 16 Carroll (27-7) is at Homestead (24-7) at 6 p.m. The match was moved to Homestead because Carroll’s gym is being used for another activity.

In other area regionals, Woodlan (24-7) travels to Westview (25-9) in a 2A match, while 1A No. 12 Blackhawk Christian (23-8) is at South Central of Union Mills (26-5). Both matches are set for 7 p.m.

The winner of the regionals will advance to their respective semistate locations Saturday, with 4A at Huntington North, 3A at Plymouth, 2A at Bremen and 1A at Caston.
