The Thunder Basin High School volleyball team placed third at the 4A East cross-quad regional tournament Saturday in Casper.
The Bolts split its matches in the tournament, losing to No. 1-ranked Laramie (20-0) in three sets, 25-20, 25-15 and 25-21.
Thunder Basin went into the third-place game against Cheyenne East, sweeping the Thunderbirds 25-20, 25-15 and 25-21.
The third-place finish clinches the No. 3 seed from the East for the Bolts in the state tournament next weekend in Casper. Thunder Basin will play the loser of the West cross-quad championship Saturday between Rock Springs and Natrona County.
The state tournament will be a one-day tournament. The Bolts will need to win three straight games to walk away with the state title next Saturday.
