Top-seeded Twin Falls and Camas County of Fairfield held up their end of the bargain Monday night in 4th District 4A and 1A Division 2 prep volleyball tournaments staged in gyms at Twin Falls and Carey.

Meanwhile, Hailey's #2-seeded Wood River High School spikers (15-16) suffered a second-round upset to #3-seeded Jerome 25-18, 25-22, 24-26, 25-19 during the Great Basin Conference tournament in Twin Falls.

In the six-school Great Basin meet, regular-season champion Twin Falls (35-5) survived the upset bid of #5-seeded Minico 25-15, 23-25, 25-9, 25-13 and faced Jerome in Tuesday night's semi-final. With its Monday loss, Wood River moved into the loser bracket and clashed with the survivor of Minico-Canyon Ridge, also on Tuesday.

The three-day league tournament wraps up Thursday, Oct. 21, with the top two GBC teams earning berths in the eight-team State 4A tournament Oct. 29-30 at Kimberly.

At Carey High School, reigning State 1A Division 2 champion Camas County led by junior hitter Katelyn Peterson took care of stubborn #5-seeded Lighthouse Christian Academy 16-25, 25-22, 25-23, 25-19 Monday.

Camas will play last year's Northside Conference tournament champion Dietrich today, Wednesday at 4 p.m. in the league title match. Second-seeded Dietrich polished off #3-seeded Richfield 25-20, 25-11, 25-13 in another Monday match.

The top two Northside teams make the grade for the two-day, eight-team State 1A Division 2 tournament Oct. 29-30 at Burley High School while the third-place team from this week's tournament advances to a state play-in match Saturday, Oct. 23 at 5 p.m. at American Falls.

The #6-seeded Carey Panthers (4-14) and #7-seeded Community School Cutthroats (2-14) met in a loser-out match Tuesday afternoon on the Carey court to determine which team would play Lighthouse Christian in another stay-alive match later Tuesday.

In Saturday's first round, Richfield defeated Carey 25-15, 25-23, 25-18 and Dietrich took care of The Community School 25-17, 25-5, 25-12.
