On Sunday evening, the Indiana High School Athletic Association announced sectional pairings for volleyball as part of the 51st annual State Championship Pairings Show on the IHSAA Champions Network, presented by Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance.
In Class 1A, South Central got a tough first-round matchup to open the six-team sectional. The Lady Rebels will confront host Christian Academy of Indiana, which is back in Class 1A for the first time since 2016. Lanesville, considered one of the favorites in sectional 61, drew one of two first-round byes and will await the winner of the West Washington-Rock Creek Community Academy contest in the second semifinal.
In Class 2A, Crawford County drew one of two first-round byes in sectional 48 and will await the winner of the North Posey-host Perry Central matchup in the first semifinals.
After taking part in a five-set battle during the regular season, rivals Corydon Central and North Harrison will once again square off in the fourth quarter-final match of 3A sectional 30 at Madison Consolidated. Winner of that match will move on to the second semi-final match to confront the winner of the Salem-Scottsburg contest.
Game times for sectional matches were not available for press time yesterday (Tuesday).
