Two volleyball teams battling for the top spot in the Lincoln Trail Conference will meet tonight outside of Monmouth. The matchup will feature the United Red Storm as they host Kewanee Wethersfield. Both teams are coming off of wins last night, as United topped Mercer County, while Wethersfield won it's 20th match of the season by defeating Stark County. Other volleyball tonight in the area finds Williamsfield hosting Illini Bluffs and Ridgewood traveling to Annawan.


Postseason play begins for the small school soccer teams in Illinois today. Monmouth-Roseville is the top seed at the Rock Island Regional, and the Titans will play Alleman in the tourney opener this evening in the Quad Cities. Meanwhile, the Galesburg boys have one more regular-season game to play, and that comes up tomorrow when the Silver Streaks play host to Quincy.
