Area teams prepare for Volleyfest

Southwest High School's 33rd annual Volleyfest tournament is set for Saturday.

Under the direction of Lady Trojans Coach Steve Voyak, the volleyball tournament has grown into one of the area's premier competitions.

In the last decade, the tournament has grown from a five-team, one gym event into a 10-team, two-state spectacular.

Slated to attend this year's event are five Arkansas teams and five local teams.

Competing with the Lady Trojans are: Cassville, Crane, Wheaton, Pea Ridge (Ark.), Farmington (Ark.), Gentry (Ark.), Berryville (Ark.) and Huntsville (Ark.).

Games begin at 8:30 a.m. with the championship set for 6 p.m.

A MVP and all-tournament team will be selected by the coaches.
