Can anyone unseat the Indians?
Northside Conference volleyball
It?s down to the wire for three teams for seeding purposes in the upcoming Northside Conference volleyball tournament, but the really big question is: who is going to unseat Shoshone?
Last year?s state runner up, Shoshone (11-0) is gunning for its second straight Northside Conference title, and so far this season, no one in the league has been able to beat them.
Carey got another crack at them last night, as they traveled to Shoshone for the final match of the regular season.
Seeding for next week?s three-day sub-district tournament is still up in the air without Thursday night?s results in.
Shoshone has locked down the #1 slot. Camas County (4-7) is ranked fifth, The Community School (2-9) is sixth and Bliss (0-11) is seventh.
Carey (8-3), Richfield (7-5) and Dietrich (7-4) are vying for the second through fourth seeds. Second place is the most advantageous with an opening round match against the Bears and, potentially, not having to face Shoshone until the third round.
ISDB in Gooding is the site of the 1A Sub-District Tournament. Matches will be played Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 18-20. The Cutthroats open up against the #3 seeded team on Monday afternoon.
The top two teams in the Northside Conference and the top two from the Southside qualify for the 1A State Tournament at Declo and Burley, Oct. 28-30.
The Carey Panthers will have to put the brakes on recent sub-par play if they hope to have a shot at state.
On Senior Night in Carey Tuesday, the Panthers fell to the Dietrich Blue Devils, 25-17, 11-25, 25-22, 25-22.
Amy Olsen finished with 18 kills. Jessica Royal had 13 kills and 11 assists.
The last time the Panthers (15-4) claimed the Northside Conference crown was 1999.
The Community School lost to Shoshone in three games at the Fish Tank Tuesday. The Cutthroats played at Dietrich last night.
