TIOGA CENTER — Waverly competed in the Tioga Varsity Volleyball Tournament here Saturday.
The Wolverines took fourth out of five teams in Court 2 (middle school gym) pool play, which included eventual runner-up Trumansburg, Oneonta, Chenango Valley and Dryden. They posted a 2-6 record.
Lansing, which would capture the team title, played in the Court 1 (high school gym) pool with host Tioga, Candor and South Seneca from Section V.
Union Springs dropped out of the tournament, leaving the Court 1 pool with four teams, so each round in that pool was three sets with the third set going to 15.
The Court 2 pool went down to the wire with the semifinalists not being decided until the final round. Waverly was eliminated in its final match.
The champion Bobcats were 9-0 in pool play, the Tigers were 6-3, Candor finished 3-6 and South Seneca was 0-9.
Tioga would advance to the semifinals to face Trumansburg, which won 25-11 over the Tigers.
T-burg went 7-1 in pool play, followed by Oneonta at 6-2, Chenango Valley with a 4-4 mark, and Dryden at 1-7.
Waverly returns to IAC action Monday at Tioga.
