West Wins as Area HS Volleyball Playoffs Continue

The Warriors are one step closer to their preseason goal.

West volleyball defeated Tuloso-Midway in four sets on Tuesday, rolling past the Cherokees 25-16, 25-20, 21-25, 25-19 in Woodsboro. Lexi Morris led the Warriors in kills with 17, adding 27 digs and a block. Piper Kallman had 18 assists and three digs, and Madison Dybala had 16 digs and three assists.

The Warriors’ victory sets them up for a match against Mission Veterans Memorial in the area round of the playoffs.

CLEVELAND (AP) – A person familiar with the decision says the Cleveland Cavaliers will host the 2022 NBA All-Star Game.

An announcement is expected later this week, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league has not yet made Cleveland’s selection official.

Crain’s Cleveland Business was first to report the mid-season event will be at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Cavs had submitted bids to the league to host All-Star Games, but a massive renovation at Quicken Loans Arena made that impossible. But construction, which began this year, is on time and should be completed by the end of next summer.

Cleveland last hosted the event in 1997 at Richfield Coliseum when the league honored its Top 50 players.

The All-Star Game provides a huge economic boost to hosting cities.

This season’s game is in Charlotte, following by Chicago and Indianapolis.
