Third-seeded Middleton returns to the tournament field for the sixth straight season and for the 11th time overall. The Cardinals’ furthest advance toward a title was to the semifinals in 2007 and 2008. This season, they advance to the quarterfinals with a hard-earned ousting of Kettle Moraine 25-16, 19-25, 21-25, 25-21, 15-8 in the sectional final held at Madison Memorial. They are the champions of the Big Eight Conference this season.
Middleton will take on Kenosha Indian Trail on Friday night at 8 p.m. in a state quarterfinal. The 55th Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Boys Volleyball Tournament will take place Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9-10, at Wisconsin Lutheran College in Milwaukee.
Coach Ben White talks about the trip to state, and what is different about this year's team, including experience and success against other state participants in 2018.
