Four teams clinched berths to the 4A state volleyball tournament yesterday (Tuesday), including upstart Mount Vernon.
The Bulldogs went into the Northwest District tourney seeded fifth, but they knocked off top-seeded Edmonds-Woodway in the semifinals, 3-0, to advance to Thursday’s championship match against Snohomish. The Panthers, ranked No. 7, punched their ticket to state by beating Lake Stevens in the other semifinal, 3-0.
Second-ranked Newport is in after last night’s 3-1 victory over Bothell in the semifinals of the KingCo (District 2) tourney. Skyline also clinched a berth by beating Eastlake in the other semi, 3-0, and plays Newport for the tournament title tomorrow night at Skyline.
Just one more state berth is up for grabs between those two districts, so it will be quite a battle between the eight that remain alive — Eastlake, Ballard, Bothell and Inglemoor on the KingCo side, and E-W, Jackson, Lake Stevens and Monroe on the WesCo side (the No. 3 finishers in each of those tournaments play Saturday for a final berth).
The other 4A district and regional tournaments are this weekend. The biggest of those is the West Central Bi-District event at Kentwood Friday-Saturday, where seven qualifiers will be decided.
Most district tournaments 3A, 2A and the other classifications are also this weekend, although the Sea-King 3A tourney starts tomorrow, and that one should be a dandy.

Post-Ups: Girls hoop notes on Skyline’s Haley Smith, Mercer Island and Glacier Peak, plus tourney updates, links and big scorers
The playoffs are gearing up, and the girls basketball season is winding down.
Can you believe the state tournaments (or the quarterfinals, at least) are just three weeks away?
I won’t have that many more chances to highlight players and teams, so I chose the subjects of this edition of Post-Ups with care. Here, you get a chance to read about the newly crowned KingCo 4A MVP, Skyline’s Haley Smith, along with Mercer Island’s late-season surge and Glacier Peak’s continued climb.
Plus, I’ll catch you up on some of the tournaments and link you to updated brackets. And, as always, there’s the Drive to 25 featuring players who scored 25 or more since the last report.
Smith takes the next big step for Spartans
It’s one thing to talk about potential. It’s another to fulfill it.
Haley Smith took that step this season, leading the Spartans to a second straight division title in KingCo 4A.
