Normal West won a three-set thriller at Normal Community to earn a share of the Big 12 Conference volleyball title. West, Community and Champaign Central share the regular season championship ahead of this weekend’s conference tournament.

U-High avenged an earlier loss to Spring Sacred Heart-Griffin with a two-set win to move into the title match of the Central State 8 volleyball tournament. The Pioneers will face Rochester for the title.

Metamora clinched at least a share of the Mid-Illini Conference volleyball title Tuesday. The Redbirds win coupled with Limestone’s victory over Morton means the Redbirds can do no worse than share the league championship.
