WAHOO - Four area volleyball teams will be vying for spots in the Nebraska State Volleyball Championships held in Lincoln on Nov. 4-7 when they compete in District Final contests on Halloween.

The top-ranked and undefeated Wahoo Warriors (31-0) earned the top seed in Class C-1 and will play at home on Saturday against #16 seed Omaha Roncalli Catholic at 11 a.m.  Roncalli won the Class C1-3 sub-district tournament and bring a 15-10 record into the contest.  Wahoo has beaten Roncalli three times this season.

The Mead Raiders were defeated by Archbishop Bergan in the Class D1-2 sub-district final in Fremont on Tuesday night, but qualified for one of the four wildcards handed out to teams who earned another chance based on the merit of a strong season.  The fourth-seeded Raiders (22-6) will play #13 seed Humphrey/Lindsey Holy Family at David City High School at 3 p.m. on Saturday.  HLF won the Class D1-3 sub-district tournament and bring a 15-14 record into the district final with the Raiders.

The Ashland-Greenwood Bluejays lost in three sets to Waverly in Class B-3 district tournament in Ashland on Wednesday night.  The Bluejays earned one of the eight Class B wildcards and will get another chance to qualify for the state tournament when they play Beatrice at home on Saturday.  The fifth-seeded Bluejays (22-6) will play the #12 seeded Beatrice Orangemen (16-14) at 12 p.m. on Saturday.

The Waverly Vikings look to return to the state tournament when they play Elkhorn North at home on Saturday in the Class B-3 District final on Saturday.  The Vikings played in the Class B tournament a season ago and will earn another trip if they can beat North on Saturday.  The Vikings take a 21-6 record into the game while North brings a 13-17 record into the district final.
