Petersburg High School’s volleyball team won’t be returning to the state tournament this year. The Vikings lost to Craig and Wrangell on Saturday at the region five tournament in Metlakatla. That’s after opening the tournament with wins over Haines and Wrangell on Thursday and Friday. Joe Viechnicki spoke with coach Jaime Cabral about his team’s matches in Metlakatla.

Craig and Wrangell will represent Southeast at the state tournament starting November 29th at Dimond High School in Anchorage. The region has produced the state champion and runner up each of the last two years.
