Attention volleyball junkies:

...At least those located in South Florida. According to the FHSAA's website, the 2008 state volleyball finals (check the to-be-filled-out bracket here) are coming to Broward.

Douglas High School of Parkland in northern Broward County will be the site of the 2008 FHSAA Boys Volleyball Finals state championship tournament, the FHSAA office announced today. The tournament is scheduled to be held May 9-10. "The FHSAA thanks Douglas High School Principal Ann Kowalski and Athletic Director Dave Grad for offering their school facilities and services to serve as host for this event," said FHSAA Executive Director John A. Stewart. "We know that they will work hard to make this a first-class event for the participating student-athletes, coaches and spectators alike."

Fans might get to see some local teams there, too. Cardinal Gibbons moved to 14-1 Tuesday night with a win over Plantation, and the Chiefs' district also includes the tough St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders. Also on Tuesday, Cooper City and South Broward each moved to 9-1 with wins.
