BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji High School volleyball team found postseason success as a No. 6 seed a year ago, and the Lumberjacks will try to do it again in 2022.

BHS earned the No. 6 seed for the Section 8-4A Tournament when the playoff field was revealed on Sunday. Bemidji will face third-seeded Buffalo in the quarterfinals, which are set for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27, in Buffalo.

Thursday’s winner will advance to play against either No. 2 seed St. Michael-Albertville or No. 7 seed Brainerd. The section semifinals are scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at the high seed.

The Section 8-4A Tournament championship game is set for Saturday, Nov. 5, at a neutral site.

Rogers pulled down the No. 1 seed and will host No. 8 seed Moorhead in the first round. Fourth-seeded Sartell-St. Stephen and fifth-seeded Elk River will clash in the other quarterfinal to round out the bracket.
