St. Mary's will host Cedar Mountain while the Indians travel to BLHS as playoffs begin Monday night.
Playoff seedings for the North Section2A were unveiled Wednesday afternoon as follows:
2. Mayer Lutheran
5. New Ulm Cathedral
7. St. Mary's Knights
9. Sleepy Eye Indians
10. Cedar Mountain
13. New Century Academy
The Knights will spend their first round in their own gym as they host the tenth seeded Cedar Mountain Cougars. The Indians will travel to play BLHS. The winner of the St. Mary's game will then travel to number two seed Mayer-Lutheran. The Indians and BLHS are the 8/9 matchup and the winner of that game will advance to compete with the number one seeded BOLD Warriors.
Both teams are looking to avenge regular season losses to their playoff foes. The Indians fell to the Mustangs in five sets earlier this year, while St. Mary's fell to the Cougars in four sets in September.
Coaches Jen Walter for the Knights and Sydney Geiger for the Indians both stated that they are ready to begin the postseason with a fresh record and new opportunities for their teams. Both section matches are slated for a 7 p.m. start next Monday, Oct. 22.
