The Somerset Volleyball team will host an invitational volleyball tournament at Rocky Hollow Recreation Center this Saturday.

The tournament the “Southeastern Kentucky Small School Spectacular” will draw some of the top small school volleyball programs from eastern Kentucky as well as several area teams to Somerset for a day of volleyball action. “We wanted the opportunity to showcase the top small school teams in our end of the state.” stated Somerset Coach Kevin Burkett. “With the help of the Somerset Parks and Recreation Department we think we are going to be able to host one of the premier events for schools our size. It’s a good chance to bring people into Somerset and highlight our community.”

Schools scheduled to compete include Allen Central the defending 55th district champions and Middlesboro the defending 48th district champion. As well as Paintsville, Clinton Co., Lincoln Co. McCreary Central, Jackson Co. and the host school Somerset.

Tournament format will have the teams competing in pool play in the morning and returning for elimination tournaments in the evening. “With the format there are sure to be some really competitive matches near the end of the day,” commented Burkett. “I think we have an extremely balanced field in terms of level of play and that should lead to some really exciting matches for the fans.

Matches start at 10:00 a.m. and run through the championship matches scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Admission is $5.00 at the door and is good for all day. All matches will be played at Rocky Hollow Recreation Center in downtown Somerset.
