An undefeated run through the Tri-River Athletic Conference was enough for Clovis North to earn the top seed in the Central Section girls volleyball playoffs when the pairings were announced on Saturday.
The Broncos received a bye, along with No. 2 Liberty-Bakersfield, No. 3 Arroyo Grande and No. 4 Clovis West.
Clovis North defeated defending Central Section champ Buchanan in four sets on Thursday night to cap a 10-0 run in the TRAC.
Clovis North is 38-3 overall. It split with Liberty, beating the Patriots 2-1 in the Clovis Volleyball Challenge on Aug. 31 but losing 3-1 five days later at Liberty. The other losses were both 2-0 in tournaments, to St. Francis-Sacramento and Marin Catholic-Kentfield.
The Bears will host No. 11 Garces at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Other top seeds in other divisions:
D-II: Redwood, which is 37-0
D-III: San Joaquin Memorial (26-9)
D-IV: Sierra Pacific (30-6)
The section championships will take place Nov. 9 at College of the Sequoias.
Also, the girls tennis team bracket is set with opening-round matches Wednesday. Clovis North, top-seeded in Division I, has a first-round bye. The Broncos are seeking their fourth straight section team title.
