Three area boys volleyball teams qualified for the state tournament, but in an odd twist of luck two will meet in the first round.

No. 12 Ironwood Ridge will play No. 21 Catalina Foothills on Saturday, though the game will be played in Chandler at Hamilton High School. The winner will advance to play host Hamilton later that afternoon.

Ironwood Ridge won the only meeting between the Nighthawks and Falcons in a 3-2 thriller. The Nighthawks are 0-3 this season against Hamilton, while the Falcons lost their only meeting with the Huskies.

Marana earned the No. 23 seed and will meet Chandler high School in Mesa. The winner gets the host team, No. 7 Mesa Mountain View. Marana has not played either school this season.
