The 2015 District 9B Volleyball Tournament will conclude this week in Menno Friday, Nov. 6 with the winning team moving on to the Region 5B Championship and a chance to make the field for the South Dakota State B Volleyball Tournament.

The tournament got underway earlier this week when the No. 4 seed Scotland, coming into the tournament with a 9-18 record, took on the No. 5 seed Marion, who sported a record of 6-13. Also matching up in the first round were host team and No. 3 seed Menno, who holds a 10-12 record on the season, and No. 6 seed Freeman, who comes into the tournament with a 0-19 record.

Those games, which were scheduled to take place Tuesday evening, Nov. 3, were not completed by the time this issue of the Hutchinson Herald went to press. For more on the results of those matches, watch next week's issue.

The tournament will resume Thursday evening, Nov. 5 when No. 1 seed Parker, who comes into the tournament with a 23-5 record, will take on the winner of the Scotland versus Marion matchup. That match is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the Menno Gymnasium.

The second match of the evening will feature the No. 2 seed Freeman Academy, entering the post season with a 23-2 record, taking on the winner from the Menno versus Freeman match from Tuesday. That match is scheduled to take place approximately 20 minutes following the conclusion of the 6 p.m. match.

It will all boil down to Friday evening, when the championship match will be played. That match is expected to get underway at 7 p.m. The winner of the match will advance to face the winner of the District 10B on the home court of the District 9B Tournament winner. That match is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 10.

Teams competing in District 10B include Gayville-Volin, Alcester-Hudson, Irene-Wakonda, Viborg-Hurley and Centerville.

The 2015 South Dakota State B Volleyball Tournament will take place in Sioux Falls Nov. 19-21.
