Lady Pacers open Sectional tourney


The Indiana High School Athletic Association has released its pairings for the upcoming volleyball Sectional, and the Switzerland County Lady Pacers won’t have to wait long – and will see a familiar opponent.

The Sectional, which is being played at South Ripley, will open on Thursday, October 12th, with Coach Olivia Hewitt’s Lady Pacers taking on Southwestern in the first game at 6 p.m.

The Lady Pacers and the Lady Rebels just met this past Tuesday at the Switzerland County gym, so both teams should know their foes well heading into tourney time.

The second game on Thursday night will feature Milan versus North Decatur, with that game scheduled to begin at approximately 7:30 p.m.

On Saturday, October 14th, the day will start with the Switzerland County-Southwestern winner playing the Milan-North Decatur winner at 11 a.m. That will be followed at approximately 12:30 p.m. by Austin playing South Ripley.

The two winners from Saturday afternoon will then square off for the Sectional crown later that night, with first serve of the title tilt coming at 7 p.m.
