All-Area boys volleyball

The All-Area boys volleyball team will run in Thursday's paper. This is our first spring team of the year.

All-Area pages are complete. Now we need to wait for color positions to run them.

We try to play up the all-area teams with color cutouts so it takes a bit longer to prepare them and color positions are not available on a daily basis.

We will list whether a team is running by 7 p.m. the night before.

We appreciate your patience.
