Five Santa Cruz County teams were seeded into the Central Coast Section volleyball tournaments this past weekend.
Of the five, Harbor received the highest seed.
The Pirates are the No. 1 seed of the Division IV tournament and won’t have to play until Saturday, when it faces the winner of Scotts Valley vs. Mercy of San Francisco. That match will be held on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in San Francisco.
Harbor, which dropped three games total in their SCCAL championship run this season, will try to get back to the CCS finals, a feat it achieved in 2008.
To get there, it will likely have to defeat defending champion Soquel.
The Knights received the No. 4 seed and won’t have to play until Saturday against Carmel or Harker. If the bracket goes chalk, then Harbor and Soquel would meet in the semifinals.
Aptos also received entry into the tournament, earning the No. 3 seed in the Division III bracket. It won’t have to play until Saturday when it faces sixth-seeded San Mateo.
San Mateo is 14-16, one of several teams in the bracket with a sub-.500 record.
Ahead of Aptos are second-seeded Sacred Heart Cathedral and top-seeded Valley Christian.
Pacific Collegiate received the No. 8 seed in Division V and will play host to St. Thomas More on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The Pumas lost just three times all season.
The winner of the match will face top-seeded Notre Dame, who was bumped down to Division V this year, on Saturday in Salinas.
Another local team receiving a CCS tournament entry is Anzar. The Hawks, the runners-up in the Mission Trail Athletic League, will travel north to face Castilleja on Saturday at 5 p.m.
