Big school bashes are the topic of discussion for the top 10 volleyball schedule Tuesday night.  The top two teams from Class 4A and 5A square off in two highly anticipated contests.  Top ranked Lewis Palmer (4A) is challenged by #2 Cherokee Trail (5A) while #1 Chaparral (5A) takes on #2 Ponderosa (4A) in the Continental conference opener for both teams.
Those are just of many matchups to highlight on the schedule.  Also in 5A is an important RPI battle between #9 Cherry Creek and #10 Rock Canyon.  Both clubs there have been inconsistent to this point but each looks for a win to gain momentum for conference action.
In Class 3A, #3 University has a very difficult week in store.  They begin by hosting #3 Holy Family (4A) and the Tigers are the lowest ranked opponent for the Bulldogs this week.  They also challenge #2 Lutheran (3A) on Thursday and #1 Yuma (2A) on Saturday.
Staying in 3A, #1 Eaton gets on the road to meet #4 Faith Christian.  The Reds have played just two matches (2-0) and haven’t seen court time since August 25th.  Faith Christian (4-1) ended the Jefferson Academy tournament with a two-set loss to Lutheran.
In Class 1A, #1 Kit Carson opens the High Plains league schedule against #5 McClave.  The Cardinals lost some ground in the rankings this week following a five-set home loss to Walsh last week.  They had swept their first four opponents.
