Volleyball heaven this weekend

It’s volleyball heaven this weekend, especially if you can make it East of the mountains to the huge Spokane Crossover Classic.

I don’t have the pool information yet, but I’ll let you know when I do. It’s usually a 64-team event filled with many state contenders from multiple classifications. Mead beat Bishop Blanchet in last year’s final. At the time, they were the defending 4A and 3A state champions.

We should find about more about Mead, which will retain its No. 1 ranking in Class 4A this week. The Panthers beat East Valley of Spokane last week, 3-0 (but one of the games was 25-21). East Valley is ranked No. 1 in 3A and probably will stay there.

Check back this afternnoon for updated rankings.

If you don’t want to make the long drive to Spokane, but still want to see some good volleyball, just head up to Monroe for the Bearcat Invitational the following weekend. Plenty of talented teams are staying closer to home for this one, including second-ranked Kentwood of Covington, No. 5 Kamiak and of course No. 7 Monroe. Eastside Catholic, No. 6 in Class 3A, also is in the field along with Issaquah, Bainbridge, Snohomish, Archbishop Murphy, Redmond, Lake Stevens, Arlington and Inglemoor.

There were some interesting matches last week, and I’ll talk more about them when I come back with my rankings this afternoon.
