Four volleyball teams reach super regional round

Published 11:00 am Tuesday, October 18, 2022

Four county volleyball teams will take the court this week at the South Super Regional at the Cramton Bowl Multiplex in Montgomery.

Andalusia and Pleasant Home will play Wednesday and Thursday. Opp and Straughn will play Thursday and Friday.

In each class, the winner and runner-up of each area tournament will compete in one of two super-regional tournaments. Each super regional will use six courts, keeping the allotted 15 minutes between matches, and equitable playing time at each court for all tournament teams.

Play is single-elimination with a best 3-out-of-5 format. Each area winner will play a runner-up from another area in the first round of the bracket. The first four finishers in each super-regional tournament will advance to the state tournament next week. A consolation match will determine the third- and fourth-place teams.

Tickets must be purchased online through the AHSAA’s ticketing partner GoFan with admission set at $10 per day plus a convenience fee. Links for each day are as follows:
