SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — The South Tahoe Vikings volleyball team suffered losses in its final two regular season games but still earned the No. 2 seed for the playoffs.

The Vikings enjoyed a first-round bye Thursday, Nov. 1, in the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association Class 3A Northern League Volleyball Championships at Elko, Nevada.

South Tahoe (16-8) awaits the winner between No. 3 Elko (18-6) and No. 6 Spring Creek (8-14) and will play for a spot in the regional final and a state berth at 2 p.m. at Elko High School.

Should the Vikings get through their semifinal match and earn a state berth, they will play for the title at 4:30.

The Vikings had won 11 straight before suffering a narrow 3-2 home loss to Dayton, 15-11 in the fifth set.

They followed that two days later with a straight sets road loss to their rival, the Truckee Wolverines.

Truckee finished unbeaten in league and earned the No. 1 seed.
