The Class 5A Volleyball field has been trimmed to a dozen teams and those clubs head to Denver this weekend for the state tournament. A new format greets them as the event has been stretched to three days and moved from a pool format to a double-elimination bracket to the semifinals. Once the Final Four is set, the tournament then becomes single elimination with the champion crowned Saturday evening at the Denver Coliseum.
Marty Cesario has provided our coverage of 5A volleyball through the entire season and he gives an in-depth preview with his latest podcast. You can also follow the podcast with the twitter feeds below.
