Pekin volleyball will travel west to take on Pella Christian in the Class 2A Region 5 semifinals.


First serve is scheduled for 7 p.m. and Pella High School will host the match. The Eagles are 20-15 on the season after defeating 11-17 Colfax-Mingo at home on Oct. 17 and then upsetting No. 15 Van Meter 3-1 on the road Monday.


Pekin is 22-15 after defeating Sigourney in three sets Monday in Packwood. The winner of the Eagles/Panthers will play the Grundy Center/BCLUW winner Halloween night in Grinnell at 7 p.m.


It should be noted that 34-6 Grundy Center is not only ranked No. 3 in Class 2A, but they have only lost to schools from larger classes, each of whom was ranked as well.
