Camdenton, Mo. – For three lake area volleyball teams, the season is over. With Monday night holding the first game of districts for the four lake area volleyball teams, only the Versailles Tigers (7-17-4) were able to advance on into the second round.
Facing off against the Eldon Mustangs (7-12-2) in the first round of the Class 3, District 9 tournament, the Lady Tigers' journeyed to Fulton on Monday night for their first match of district play.
The Tigers won the first set by a score of 25-16, but Eldon rallied back in the second to win 25-19. With everything on the line, and the match tied 1-1, the number six seeded Lady Tigers upset the number three seeded Eldon with a 25-17 win to advance.
The Osage Lady Indians and the Camdenton Lady Lakers fared as well as their Eldon counterpart on Monday night, as both teams were knocked out of their district tournaments.
Osage fell in two sets to Springfield Catholic, with scores of 25-18 and 25-15. The Lady Indians finished their season in the number six seed with a record of 14-13-3, winning four more games than the previous season, which also ended in the first round with a loss to Marshfield.

The Lady Lakers finish their season with a final record of 4-24.
UPDATE: Versailles' next match was against the number-two seed, the Southern Boone Lady Eagles. Another upset in that game would put the Lady Tigers in the district championship match.
That, however, was not meant to be, as Southern Boone won in three games against Versailles in the semifinals to advance to the Class 3 District 9 championship on Tuesday night.
