Columbus Discoverers

Columbus High volleyball learned its district destination on Friday when the NSAA released the seven sites for Class A.

As the wildcard points standings indicated earlier in the week, little changes were made, and the Discoverers will be traveling to Elkhorn South as the No. 3 seed among a group that includes the host, Kearney, Omaha Bryan and Omaha South.

Columbus plays Kearney at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Bryan and Omaha South open the tournament at 4 p.m. The winner faces Elkhorn South. The winner of that will go head-to-head with the winner of Columbus and Kearney for the automatic bid to state.

Class A sends seven district champions to the state tournament and one wildcard. Columbus High is 15th in the final regular season points standings and will thus have to win the district tournament to qualify for state.

Kearney and Columbus faced off at the Norfolk Invite on Aug. 31, a two-set sweep for the Bearcats, and on Sept. 17 in Columbus, a four-set win for the Discoverers.
