One thing was for certain Saturday night at the Streator Woodland Class 1A volleyball supersectional: Toppers were going to win because, ironically, both Mount Pulaski and their opponent, Danville Schlarman, are nicknamed the Toppers. However, it was the Toppers of Mount Pulaski who came out on top, winning in two sets 25-10 and 25-11.

This supersectional win for Mount Pulaski means the next stop is Redbird Arena in Normal, home of the volleyball state finals. Mount Pulaski (32-8) will play Valmeyer on Friday at 9 a.m. Mount Pulaski placed second in the 2011 Class 1A state finals, while Valmeyer will be making its first state appearance in school history.
