The St. Mary's Knights received the No. 6 seed in the MSHSL Section 2A playoffs for the second year in a row.
The Knights (12-12) will host a familiar foe in crosstown rival Sleepy Eye Public who received the No. 11 seed. The two teams have met twice this season so far, with St. Mary's getting the better of the Indians winning both matches.
In the first matchup, St. Mary's cruised to a 3-1 win after dropping the first set. It was a different story in the second matchup, as the Indians gave the Knights all they could handle in a thrilling five-set match. The Knights were able to come out on top, but with the way how that ended, it should be an exciting playoff match.
The two will face off on Oct. 27 at St. Mary's to give off the first round of the Section 2A playoffs.
Below are the match ups and seeds for the rest of the subsection.
