Great River Conference champ Braham earned a No. 1 seed for its half of the Section 5A brackets, with the volleyball playoffs beginning this week.
The Bombers get a first-round bye, then they will host either No. 4 East Central (7-11) or No. 5 Barnum (4-17) in the Friday, Oct. 26 quarterfinals (7 p.m.). A win would advance Braham to the Tuesday, Oct. 30 semifinals for another home match.
In Braham’s half of the brackets are No. 2 McGregor (13-9), No. 3 Rush City (12-11) and No. 6 Ogilvie (2-21). In the other East pod bracket, Nevis (20-8) is the No. 1 seed, and GRC runner-up Onamia (16-9) is the No. 2 seed.
Subsection finals will be Nov. 1 at Pierz, with the Section 5A championship on Nov. 3 back in Pierz.
