The high school volleyball postseason resumes with Class 1A and 2A semifinals tonight around the state with all first serves at 7pm.
Our KMCH area coverage featured match will come from Starmont High School as the Class 1A 4th-ranked 28-5 Starmont Stars host the 18-16 Dons of Don Bosco. It’s the second semifinal in a row for the Stars after back to back 30-win seasons. Starmont is looking for their 3rd regional final appearance since 2008, second in a row after the program’s first trip to the state tournament last year. The winner will face the winner of the Iowa Valley/Easton Valley match going on in Marengo tonight, next Tuesday night in Center Point. All the coverage tonight live on KMCH and KMCH.com around 6:50pm with Sports Director Jon Swisher and Julie Vaske.
Also in 1A, 2nd-rated Springville welcomes in Bellevue Marquette.
The 21-10 East Buchanan Buccaneers will travel to Jesup facing the top-ranked Wolverines of Dike-New Hartford. For the Bucs, it’s their first trip ever to a regional semifinal as this squad has the best match and set record in program history.
