District 8 volleyball, soccer set

Greater Spokane League volleyball and soccer teams are headed to post-season with the start of district play next week.

Volleyball has a pair of four-team tournaments that will qualify a total of seven teams to regional play against the Columbia Basin Big Nine. Tournaments begin Wednesday and conclude Saturday at Mt. Spokane.

Soccer also begins next Wednesday, three 4A teams qualifying for regionals. The 3A schools have no district tournament, but four advance to regional against the CBBN.

East Valley won a shootout 2-1 over North Central and with two wins would overhaul the Indians for the top 3A regional seed. The Knights goal in regulation came during a bone-jarring collision between scorer Andrew Mastronardi and NC keeper Garrett Brickey who declared he suffered whiplash while securing the ball.
