Sandburg Volleyball Set to Defend Region Title This Weekend

GALESBURG — The Carl Sandburg College volleyball team will begin defense of its Region IV Division II tournament title at 4 p.m. Saturday against Morton.

The Chargers (23-15) are the No. 4 seed from District A and will face the Panthers (14-17), the No. 5 seed from District B, in the quarterfinals of the crossover-format tournaments hosted by Lake County. The teams did not meet during the regular season.

Should the top four teams from one district advance to the championship round of both the District A and District B tournaments, the championship matches would be played according to seed. In that scenario, Sandburg would play District A No. 1 Sauk Valley, and No. 2 seed Waubonsee would face No. 3 McHenry County.

All matches at this weekend's tournament will be streamed at

The Region IV District A and District B tournament champions each qualify for the NJCAA Division II Volleyball Championship from Nov. 18-20 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Sandburg has advanced to the national tournament in three of the last four seasons.
