Fountain Lake will return home to Hot Springs on Saturday to play for the 3A state volleyball championship in front of the home fans after their convincing 3-0 victory over the Hoxie Lady Mustangs earlier today. The Lady Cobras will play Little Rock Episcopal who survived an intense, five-set match over the Piggott Lady Mohawks.
After having traveled to western Arkansas to play in the first three rounds of the state tournament, the state final will be played at Bank OZK Arena in Hot Springs in what should be essentially a home court advantage for Fountain Lake. Fountain Lake advanced through the first three rounds without losing a set.
Earlier in the day, the Little Rock Episcopal Lady Wildcats won the first semi-final match of the day over a determined Piggott Lady Mohawks team. Episcopal was able to hold on over the great effort from Piggott to win the first birth in Saturday’s state final.
Saturday’s championship match will take place at 5 p.m. Hot Springs is the host site for the Arkansas state championship matches in all classifications.
Congratulations to Fountain Lake and Episcopal, and best of luck in the state championship match!
