The Hall County Volleyball Tournament will take place Saturday, with matches commencing at 9 a.m. Ten area schools will compete in the event, each vying to be crowned the top volleyball squad in the county. Tickets for attendance will be $5 for adults and free admission for kids 10-and-under.

Competition will begin with round-robin-style pool play. The 10 programs will be split into two groups of five, each school playing against the other four in its group. 

After the group stage, the bottom two teams from each pool will be eliminated, and the remaining eight schools will compete in a more conventional bracket-style tournament.

Matches will take place at both Cherokee Bluff and West Hall High schools.

Competing programs this season are highlighted by three top-100 programs in the state, as 91st-ranked Gainesville, 76th-ranked Flowery Branch and 37th-ranked Lakeview Academy will all be in attendance. 

Pool play will start at 9 a.m., when Lakeview Academy plays East Hall and Chestatee matches up against Lanier Christian at Cherokee Bluff. At West Hall, North Hall will take on Gainesville, while West Hall goes up against Johnson.
