The Airline Lady Vikings will be at home and the Haughton Lady Bucs on the road in the first round of the LHSAA volleyball playoffs.  

District 1 runner-up Airline (23-15), the No. 16 seed, hosts No. 17 Chalmette (21-18) at 5 p.m. Wednesday in the first round of the Division I playoffs.

Airline is hosting a first-round match for the second year in a row. Last year, the Lady Vikings became the first Bossier Parish team to play a first-round match at home and win a playoff match.

District 1 champion Haughton (14-14), the No. 22 seed, travels to Baton Rouge on Thursday for a 5 p.m. Division II first-round match against McKinley (20-7), the District 4 runner-up.

Parkway just missed out on making the Division I playoffs in its third season of volleyball. The Lady Panthers (19-17) were No. 34 in the final power rankings. The top 32 teams made the playoffs.

Even so, it was a successful season. Parkway set a school record victories, winning 10 more matches than in 2018.
