We include today a couple additional notable stories from Tuesday’s Volleyball Regional Semifinals, plus a look at one of the top coaches in that sport.

Laingsburg came back after losing the first set to Delton Kellogg on Tuesday to advance in Class C; the Wolfpack has won a school-record 42 matches and will play for its first Regional title – Lansing State Journal
