Valley needed to beat Raft River twice on Tuesday to qualify for the district's number one seed to the 1A DI state tournament.

The Trojans led 2-1 in the first match, before the Vikings captured the final two sets.

That forced a second, winner-take-all match. Valley won the first set, Raft River took the second and then the Vikings won the final two sets.
