Top 10 Volleyball

With a pair of matchups featuring top five clubs facing off, Class 3A draws a good share of the Top 10 attention on Thursday night.  #2 Lutheran plays host to #3 University and #4 Faith Christian heads north to Kersey to battle #5 Platte Valley.

For University, the match is the middle of a rugged three-game stretch this week.  They outlasted 4A #3 Holy Family on Tuesday in five sets and then on Saturday visits 2A #1 Yuma.  Lutheran is unbeaten and coming off a championship of the Jefferson Academy Tournament where they beat Faith Christian in the championship match.

Faith Christian also fell to top ranked Eaton on Tuesday so the Eagles enter the match tonight with a two-match losing streak.  Platte Valley is seeing their only action of the week.

In Class 2A, #1 Yuma gets challenged by #10 Akron.  The Rams have five wins this season which is already three more than the entire 2017 campaign.  In the Santa Fe; two important matches are set between #4 Swink-Fowler and #8 Rye-Hoehne.

#2 Ponderosa (4A) continues their early run inside the Continental as they host #10 Rock Canyon (5A) tonight.  The Mustangs lost in three sets to top ranked Chaparral (5A) in their league opener two nights ago.
