3A VOLLEYBALL TEAM CAPSULES

Four-time defending state champion Eaton is the top seed and favored to land another 3A title.  The Reds are trying to become the third team in Colorado history to win at least five consecutive crowns and stay in the chase to catch Colorado Springs Christian won has a state record six-in-a-row.  Chasing the Reds are five other teams in the Patriot and the top two teams in the Frontier, Metro and Tri Peaks leagues.

The bracket opens with eight pool matches on Friday and concludes with four more first round battles and the semifinals leading up to the state championship match at 7:00pm Saturday night.  All matches can be seen live at www.NFHSNetwork.com.
