The Longmont volleyball team was rewarded for its stellar regular season Monday.

The Trojans (21-1) were anointed the No. 3 seed in the Class 4A bracket and will host Region 3 on Saturday.

The Trojans’ only loss was in their most recent match, when they fell Saturday to Eaglecrest in the Ponderosa tournament. Eaglecrest is the No. 2 seed in the 5A tournament.

The region also includes No. 22 Mullen and No. 34 Golden. The winner of the round-robin format will advance to the state tournament.

The 4A Northern League was well represented, as Broomfield (15th seed), Silver Creek (26th) and Niwot (33rd) also qualified.

Local schools Mead (No. 15) and Frederick (No. 20) also earned their way into the bracket, with Mead and Silver Creek paired in Region 11 at Green Mountain.

In the 5A bracket, only two local schools qualified and both will be underdogs. Monarch (11-12), under first-year coach Thomas Sullivan, earned the No. 26 seed and will play in Region 11.

The Coyotes’ record undoubtedly was curtailed by mass player suspension late in the season. The players since have been reinstated. The region is hosted by No. 11 Heritage and includes No. 14 Pine Creek.

Fairview (9-13) sneaked in as the 35th of 36 seeds. The Knights will play in Region 2, hosted by second-seeded Eaglecrest (19-3).

In 3A, Holy Family (14-9) earned the right to host Region 8, and Peak to Peak is among the field as the No. 21 seed. The Pumas will play at Region 4, hosted by University.

Lyons cracked the 2A bracket as the second of three seeds in Region F. Top-seeded Akron will host the region, to be played on Friday. Holyoke is the No. 3 seed.

Lyons (13-9) has won six of its past eight matches, including a 2-1 performance Friday in the 2A District 7 tournament.
