The state volleyball tournaments continued Friday at the Denver Coliseum as the first set of elimination games took place.

Six teams from each classification were eliminated and four teams will battle for two spots in the state semifinals. Below is a brief breakdown of each class.

Class 5A

Valor Christian still looks like the team to beat in the biggest classification. In their one match of the day, the Eagles rolled to a 25-20, 25-15, 25-18 win over Mountain Vista.

IN the other quarterfinal match, Fossil Ridge battle through five difficult sets, but beat Pine Creek 23-25, 29-27, 25-27, 25-18, 15-7.

The Eagles and Savercats await their opponents in the semifinals with action set to resume at 8 a.m. on Saturday. Legend will take on Pine Creek first with Chaparral facing Mountain Vista right after.

Class 4A

Some familiar faces worked their way into the semifinals as defending champion Thompson Valley got there by sweeping Cheyenne Mountain and Palmer Ridge blew by Windsor to earn their spot.

A battle of No. 1 vs. No. 2 will happen on Saturday, but it’s two matches away from the state championship as Lewis-Palmer and Windsor will face off for a spot into the semifinals. The winner of that game will get Thompson Valley.

Right after, Cheyenne Mountain will take on The Classical Academy with the winner getting Palmer Ridge in the semis.

Class 3A

Platte Valley and Eaton faced off in last year’s semifinals, but if the league foes are going to see each other this year it will be with the state championship on the line. The No. 1 Broncos and No. 3 Reds had relatively easy days to advance to the state semifinals.

Platte Valley swept Delta while Eaton got a 3-1 win over Resurrection Christian. Liberty Common won two matches on Friday and will face the Cougars for a chance to move on to the semifinals. The winner of that match will face Platte Valley with the winner of University and Delta getting a shot at Eaton.

Class 2A

As the No. 10 seed, Limon has made an unlikely run to the semifinals thanks to a win over Burlington. That came after upsetting No. 2 Rye late on Thursday. Top-seeded Wiggins is also into the semifinals and the Tigers have yet to drop a set in this state tournament.

Two-time defending champion Sedgwick County will face Plateau Valley at 9:30 a.m. and the winner will move on to face the Badgers.

Strasburg and Burlington will kick off the 2A slate of games at 8 a.m. and whoever wins that showdown will get a crack at Wiggins in the semifinals.

Class 1A

If there was one bracket where being a highly seeded team paid off, it was 1A. Merino looked like Merino and stormed into the semifinals, getting a sweep over Dove Creek on Thursday and then sweeping Simla on Friday.

Stratton also go into the semifinals with strong showings over Briggsdale and McClave. Dove Creek and McClave will kick off 1A play on Saturday with the winner getting Merino and then Haxtun and Simla will battle for the right to face Stratton in the other semifinal.
