As of this post Saturday afternoon, the Hamilton Bronc volleyball team has already earned a trip to the State Class A tournament next week in Bozeman.
The girls won their first two games in the Southwestern A Divisional and are in the championship game for that tourney. The way the bracket plays out, no challenge game is possible for Hamilton. Therefore, win or lose, they're one of the two teams going to state.
Hamilton defeated Anaconda 3-1 in their first tournament game, then stopped Butte Central cold 3-0 in their second game. The championship game is Saturday night at 5 in Butte. A second game for the championship, if needed, will be played at 7pm.
