State Volleyball Tournament in Cape Girardeau

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

State volleyball tournaments get underway in Cape Girardeau today.

Action kicks off at 10:00 this morning at the Show-Me Center. Sixteen teams from across the state will be competing. Among them defending state champions Valle Catholic from Ste. Genevieve. Last year, that team traveled all the way to Kansas City for the tournament.

This is the first time Cape Girardeau will host the championships. Cape will host the state volleyball championships for the next 3 years.

Also this weekend, the Ohio Valley Conference soccer championship tournament will take place at Houck Stadium. Six teams are competing in that event.

Both events are bringing thousands to Cape. Hotels and restaurants are full.
