YORK – On Thursday morning, the NSAA released district final volleyball matchups for Saturday and two coverage-area teams will have a chance to play for a state berth in their respective classes.

The York Dukes’ (18-13) season lives on as they received one of Class B’s eight wildcards and will make a Saturday trip to Springfield, Neb., to play the No. 6-rated Platteview Trojans (22-8) in a 3 p.m. contest. The winner of that match advances to next week’s Class B state tournament starting on Thursday in Lincoln.

In D-2, the Exeter-Milligan Timberwolves (17-13), who won the D2-3 subdistrict, travel to Fillmore Central High School in Geneva to face a very familiar opponent in No. 1-rated Bruning-Davenport/Shickley (26-4), which got in on a wildcard after losing its subdistrict final to Lawrence-Nelson. Game time for that match is 7 p.m.

Fillmore Central will actually host two district finals on Saturday, the first of which is the D1-2 at 3 p.m. between Diller-Odell and Kenesaw.

Centennial Public School in Utica is hosting a doubleheader as well, as the C2-3 district final will kick things off at 2 p.m. with Grand Island Central Catholic and Lourdes Central Catholic. The 6 p.m. matchup in Utica is the C1-8 final with Syracuse and Battle Creek.

York High School is also hosting a district final, the C2-7, which will be decided between Bishop Neumann and Thayer Central at 4 p.m.
