Volleyball sectionals open tonight

ANDERSON, Ind. — Much of the local high school volleyball postseason attention will be focused on the Class 2A sectional at Alexandria, where a pair of area team ranked in the state’s top 10 will compete.

Fifth-ranked Alexandria opens play Thursday night against Sheridan. The host Tigers’ match will begin about 30 minutes following the completion of a 6 p.m. contest between Tipton and Eastern.

Play begins in the tournament tonight at 7 with Taylor squaring off against Elwood. The winner of that match faces sixth-ranked Madison-Grant — the Madison County champion — in Saturday’s first semifinal at 11 a.m.

The championship match at Alexandria is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday.

Area teams also will compete at three other sectional sites this week.
