Updates on postseason action for Issaqauh-Sammamish athletes, including the 4A boys golf district champions from Eastlake.

KingCo volleyball tourney starts Saturday

Skyline, Issaquah and Eastlake will each begin the 4A KingCo volleyball tournament Saturday and each will be after one of two automatic spots to the 4A state tournament or a place in the crossover game as the third place finisher.

Third-seeded Issaquah opens at Skyline against the Wolves in a match scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday. The Spartans will host the second match of the night as the number two seed from the conference, facing Inglemoor at 4 p.m.

The winners of those two matches will meet Tuesday, Nov. 5 at Skyline for a spot in the championship match while the losers will face loser-out matches the same night.

The top two finishers earn the top two seeds to the 4A state tournament while the third place finisher will meet a Wesco opponent for the district’s final berth.
