Correction on LP/HT volleyball playoff information

In the Oct. 20 edition of the Herald Journal, the story for the Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity Bulldogs volleyball team incorrectly stated that if LP/HT won Oct. 20th, they would then travel to New Life Academy Wednesday, Oct. 23.

In fact, LP/HT with its win Monday, will travel to PACT Charter tonight (Wednesday). And if the Bulldogs pull off a win tonight, they would then travel to Heritage Christian Friday, Oct. 24 for a 7 p.m. Section 4A quarterfinal match.

An updated Section 4A bracket is included below as it appears on the Minnesota State High School League web site.
