Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Tuesday starts the high school volleyball Eastern Regional playoffs. In the 3A elimination bracket, Kamiakin is preparing to face North Central. The Braves finished with a record of 8-6, good for fourth in the CBBN 3A. Whichever school wins the match will be lucky enough to face the best team in the state, West valley.

The Braves say they are ready. "Don't sit back on your laurels and wait for things to happen. We need to make things happen and play really hard, play our game. Just focus on what we can do and what we can control. See what happens," said Mary Opitz, Kamiakin head coach.

"We've definitely gone really far this season and we've gotten a lot better. Our skills have improved. So I think this is the right time to have us peak," said Laura Phillips, Kamiakin senior setter.
