With regular-season play complete, it’s win or go home time for all six Covington County volleyball teams.

Each area will conduct an area tournament with single-elimination play using a best 3-out-of-5 sets format. The regular season area winner will host each tournament.

Live streaming of any AHSAA event outside of the regular season is prohibited and will result in a $500 fine for any school that has a game/match streamed.
