JACKSON, Ohio — The postseason road is now set for six Ohio volleyball teams in the Ohio Valley Publishing area, and two of those local squads earned home games following the 2013 sectional tournament drawings for divisions II, III and IV held Sunday at Jackson High School.
Eastern and River Valley will open the second season at home, while Gallia Academy, Southern, South Gallia and Meigs will begin postseason play on the road.
Five of those clubs — Eastern, South Gallia, Southern, River Valley and Meigs — will also have to win only one match to make it to districts, while Gallia Academy must win twice to advance to district play.
Starting in D-4, Eastern (17-2) came away with the area’s highest seeding with a No. 3 and will host sixth-seeded South Gallia (9-10) in a sectional final on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 6 p.m. The winner advances to the district tournament at Jackson the following week.
Southern (9-9) earned a five-seed and will travel to fourth-seeded Trimble (13-4) on Thursday, Oct. 15, in a D-4 sectional final at 6 p.m. The winner also advances to Jackson district tournament the following week.
