Lake Land won the right to host by finishing second at last week’s Region 24 tournament. The Lakers knocked off Shawnee Community College and upset No. 2 seed Vincennes University in four sets. They then fell to the top seed, John A. Logan, in four sets. John A. Logan will be hosting the other side of the district tournament this weekend.
