Malden wins drawing, schedule set for Bootheel Conference volleyball tournaments

Posted Friday, October 5, 2012, at 2:11 PM

The luck of the draw went to the Malden varsity volleyball team Friday morning.

Hayti, Kennett and Malden finished in a 3-way tie for second place in the Bootheel Conference Thursday night. All three teams finished regular-season play with 4-2 conference records.

Kennett missed an opportunity to finish in outright second place Thursday when it suffered a 25-21, 25-20, road loss to Hayti.

South Pemiscot, which is the defending Bootheel Conference tournament champion, finished first in regular-season Bootheel Conference play and will be the No. 1 seed in next week's Bootheel Conference Tournament at Malden.

The No. 2 seed was decided Friday morning by drawing one of the three teams. Malden was randomly drawn and will be the No. 2 seed in the varsity bracket.

Once the No. 2 seed is determined by a random drawing the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds are determined by examining the head-to-head result of the two remaining teams that were not drawn.

Hayti beat Kennett in head-to-head conference play and will be the No. 3 seed at the 7-team tournament. Kennett will be the No. 4 seed.
