For the 13th time in Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) history four champions will be crowned in the seventh grade girls volleyball state tournament series. Competition in the Class 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A state final tournaments begins Friday (March 8) and concludes Saturday (March 9) at four sites.

Class 1A will be played at Lexington High School; Class 2A will be played at Pawnee JHS/HS; Decatur Lutheran School Association will be the site of Class 3A; and Normal Kingsley will host Class 4A.

IESA Girls Volleyball began in 1976. There was one-class competition from 1976-84 and in 1985, the state series was divided into Class A and Class AA by school size. From 1989-2006, there were two classes at the state series for both seventh grade and eighth grade. Beginning in 2007, the seventh and eighth grade series were divided into four classes.

Complete pairings for each state final, plus the FanZone, can be found at www.iesa.org. Click on the Volleyball link at the top of the IESA website home page.
