The Big South Conference will be holding a new volleyball event this fall.

The day will feature seven varsity matches, held in the WAHS Blue Gym. Meanwhile, B- and C-squad matches will be held in the Gold Gym.
The varsity matches will be full, regular-season best-of-five matches, while B- and C-squads will play best-of-three.
The varsity schedule for the day includes: 10 a.m.: Redwood Valley vs. St. James Area. 11:30 a.m.: Luverne vs. Fairmont. 1 p.m.: Worthington vs. Waseca. 2:30 p.m.: Pipestone vs. Martin County West. 4 p.m.: Marshall vs. Blue Earth Area. 5:30 p.m.: Jackson County Central vs. St. Peter. 7 p.m.: Windom vs. New Ulm.
