Shawe Memorial drew a first-round bye while Madison, Southwestern and Switzerland County will all take the long road when the 42nd Annual IHSAA Volleyball Tournament gets under way next week.

The Hilltoppers will face South Decatur in the semifinals of the Class A Sectional 60 at Hauser on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 12:30 p.m. With just one win, Shawe would head to the championship match that same night.

The other three teams will need to win two games just to reach the finals. Madison, which is seeking its first sectional crown since 1998, will take on North Harrison in the opening round of the eight-team Class 3A Sectional 30 at Brownstown. That match will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Southwestern will open defense of its first sectional crown against Milan in the first round of the Class 2A Sectional 45 which will be held on the Rebels' home floor. The match will be played on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 6 p.m.

Switzerland County will try to thwart Southwestern and win its first sectional crown. The Pacers will take on South Ripley immediately after the Southwestern-Milan match. The winners from those two matches will meet in the semifinals.

The championship match for all three sectionals will be held on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. The cost for each tournament is $6 per session or $9 for all three sessions.
