With a couple of weeks remaining in the regular season, local high school volleyball teams are gearing up for the postseason. 

IHSA regional pairings will be announced this Friday afternoon.

Valmeyer (14-14) has only nine players on its varsity roster this season, but is always a tough out at season’s end.

The loss to Greenville was in three sets.

On Monday, the Pirates suffered a three-set loss to Marissa, 25-23, 14-25, 25-27.
