After Chadron High School announced on Tuesday afternoon that the volleyball team was pulling out of Saturday’s Alliance Tournament, Sioux County joined in the Cardinals’ decision by Wednesday morning, and now the two programs will meet in a JV/Varsity double header on Saturday morning at the Bird Cage in Chadron.

Sioux County Athletic Director Barry Swisher initially confirmed the match to Chadrad Sports on Wednesday morning before Chadron High volleyball coach Blakelee Hoffman also confirmed the decision to add the game.

Chadron High School released an official statement on Tuesday just after noon explaining its decision to keep the team out of Thursday’s match against Alliance and tourney play on Saturday back in Alliance, citing a recent rise in COVID-19 cases and a lack of public health protocols at Alliance Public Schools .

Sioux County Schools quietly made its decision regarding the Alliance Tournament on Wednesday morning while working to fill the void left by the schedule change by tabbing Chadron for the Saturday match.

The match will be a battle of two teams playing their best volleyball of the season. Chadron has won 9 of their last 11 games, while the Lady Warriors have taken 6 of 8 since the calendar rolled over to October.

The JV game will start Saturday morning off at 10:00 am.
