District champion Savages headed to Bonneville; Pirates run through play-ins, en route to Rigby

Volleyball Teams On To State

Having won the last two state titles, the Prairie girls are headed back to state — not as the favorites, but as the Whitepine League’s insurgents. Pictured, seniors Mykaela McWilliams (left) and Chaye Uptmor (right) consistently demolished Idaho City’s attacks during the state play-in last Saturday, Oct. 22.

Salmon River's volleyball team added two district tournament wins to the streak the Savages have run off against Long Pin Conference foes, defeating Garden Valley 3-0 on Oct. 15 and defeating Council 3-0 in the District III title game Oct. 18. The district title comes with a berth in the 1AD2 state tournament, Oct. 28-29 in Idaho Falls, where the Savages will play District IV champion Lighthouse Christian.

Their tournament opener will be at 11 a.m. MT at Bonneville High School.

A community send-off will be held today, Oct. 26, immediately following the Salmon River football game against Cascade, which was moved from Friday night to 3 p.m. MT Wednesday to accomodate the volleyball tournament.

Prairie’s tournament run included a third-place finish in the Whitepine League’s district tournament by way of a 3-1 win over Lapwai 3-1 (25-12, 25-22, 19-25, 26-24) on Oct. 18. PHS swept Wallace during a bidistrict playoff at Coeur d’Alene on Thursday and swept Idaho City in the 1AD1 state play-in held last Saturday in Craigmont.

Prairie’s post-season is set to continue with the 1AD1 state tournament opener, at 9 a.m. MT Friday, Oct. 29, at Rigby High School.

In contrast to previous seasons, the Idaho High School Activities Association’s chosen Internet video broadcaster will be charging webcast viewers a fee, $10 per month. The service provider, nfhsnetwork.com, will be broadcasting the volleyball semifinals, consolation finals and championship matches.
