TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) – Following the district volleyball championships this week, we had several teams overcome some obstacles and advance to the tournament.
The Sun Valley Community School entered the 1A D-II district tournament with only having played four matches during the regular season.
The Cutthroats lost to Hansen in a five set battle on the first day, only to win the next four matches and advance to state for the first time since 2002.
Sun Valley handed Carey a 3-1 loss in the second place game Thursday night, so the Panthers then traveled to Timberline High School Saturday to face Tri-Valley in a play-in game.
Carey fell 0-3 to Tri-Valley and is done for the year.
