HS Girls Volleyball season-opener later tonight

Let’s take a look at what’s going on in this action-packed weekend.
A few weeks ago, several high schools participated in the Annual Shieh Invitational Volleyball tournament to get a feel of what’s in store for the upcoming IIAAG High School Girls Volleyball season. Later tonight, teams will begin their quest for the 2012 championship.
