STRATFORD — The top-seeded Stratford volleyball team will advance to sectionals after a 3-1 win over Marawood Conference rival Marathon in a WIAA Division 3 regional final Saturday night at Stratford High School.
The Tigers won 27-25, 25-18, 14-25, 25-23 to capture the regional title and qualify for sectionals, where they will face another No. 1 seed, Athens, in a sectional semifinal Thursday at Marathon High School.
The winner will take on either Oconto or Wittenberg-Birnamwood in a sectional final on Oct. 29 at Auburndale High School and will play for a berth in the WIAA State Girls Volleyball Tournament in Green Bay.
