The Cleburne County gym will be a busy place October 22 when the Tigers host the Class 4A, Area 10 volleyball tournament. Cleburne County secured the home-court advantage by completing a 6-0 sweep of their Area 10 opponents with a win at Lincoln Tuesday.

The Tigers topped the Golden Bears 3-2. Cleburne County won the first two sets 25-17, 25-18. Lincoln got hot and won 25-22, 25-12. In the deciding fifth game, the Tigers cruised 15-3.

In a non-area game at Lincoln that same day, Cleburne County downed Munford 25-17, 22-25, 15-7 and improved to 17-10 overall. The Tigers had already defeated the Lions twice in area play.

At the Wellborn Slam Fest tournament Saturday, the Tigers finished second to host Wellborn. In pool play, Cleburne County defeated Weaver and Ranburne and lost to Wellborn to advance to the semifinals as the No. 2 team in its bracket. In the semifinal round, Cleburne County eliminated White Plains, the No. 1 team from the opposite pool. Wellborn won the title game 28-26, 25-22.

The Tigers host Clay Central and Faith Christian today, starting at 4 p.m.
