The start of the 2019 Minnesota high school volleyball schedule is fast approaching. On Aug. 22, 48 matches are set to take place across the state, and from the moment the first serve is in the air, marquee matchups will be underway.
On opening night, three teams ranked in the Class 3A preseason coaches' poll take the floor, including No. 8-3A Lakeville North hosting No. 10-3A Hopkins in a nonconference tilt.
No. 9-3A New Prague faces a difficult challenge that same evening as the Trojans take on No. 3-1A Mayer Lutheran.
Two days later, 26 more matches take place. The biggest of those will take place at Breakdown Sports' 2019 Side Out Classic at Edina High School. This showcase event will feature plenty of big-school talent in the form of host Edina, No. 6-3A Stillwater, Minnetonka, No. 3-3A Wayzata and No. 4-3A Champlin Park, the defending Class 3A champion.
The top matchup at the Side Out Classic is likely to happen at 1 p.m. when No. 4-1A Minneota and No. 2-1A Medford go toe-to-toe for the first time since the 2018 Class 1A championship match, where the Vikings took home the state championship crown at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. This clash is slated to be the only rematch of any of the 2018 state title matchups to take place during the regular season.
In Class 3A, one of the top matches of the regular season will occur on Sept. 26 as No. 3-1A Eagan travels to No. 2-3A Lakeville South for a South Suburban Conference clash. Both teams were entrants at the state tournament a season ago.
In Class 2A, one of the biggest shakeups comes as as Kenyon-Wanamingo moves down to Class 1A after being a force in Class 2A. The Knights begin the season ranked No. 1 in the Class 1A coaches' poll.
Kenyon-Wanamingo will face a key test on Sept. 24 when the Knights take on No. 1-2A Stewartville.
The Tigers will likely face several contenders during the regular season, but perhaps the toughest comes on Oct. 8 as Stewartville hosts No. 6-2A Kasson-Mantorville. The KoMets finished third in the Class 2A state tournament a season ago.
