The Wethersfield 8th grade girls are headed to state in volleyball action after defeating Oglesby Washington 25-23 and 25-10 on Monday night to win the Woodland JH Sectional Championship.
The young Lady Geese will now move on to 8-2A State competition beginning on Friday evening at 8:15 at Auburn High School.
The Geese will play Gardner after the Lady Panthers defeated Grant Park 25-12 and 25-20.
A victory on Friday would move the Geese into the semifinals and the championship round on Saturday also at Auburn HS.
The Geese will come into Friday night’s game with a perfect record of 20-0 while Gardner also comes in very strong with a season record of 19-3.
On a curious side note, Wethersfield is joined by both Raymond Lincolnwood and Mendon Unity in the 8-2A state first round action with all three teams playing on the final day of the 7-2A girls volleyball tournament held last weekend.
