St. Paul girls volleyball has a chance to make the state tournament.
To do so, the 7-12 Falcons must get past the 11-4 Lewis Mills Spartans. St. Paul will have to wait until Wednesday, Nov. 1, to play that penultimate match. The Falcons will host the match at St. Paul at 6 p.m.
To reach the postseason, a volleyball team must win 40 percent of its matches against "member schools, out-of-state schools and the American School of the Deaf," according to the CIAC tournament packet.
St. Paul hasn't faced Lewis Mills this season. The Spartans are from the Berkshire League, but they have played three opponents that the Falcons faced, and those are Housatonic, Kennedy and Naugatuck. Both teams beat Housatonic, Lewis Mills won against Kennedy, and both squads lost to Naugatuck.
If St. Paul can snap its three-match losing streak, it will make the state tournament.
