There's not going to be much preparation time for West Shamokin's boys volleyball playoff action.

The Wolves were given the 10th seed Monday, and will face No. 7 Thomas Jefferson at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Penn-Trafford High School in the first round of the WPIAL Class AA tournament.

West Shamokin (5-7) goes into the match seeking the school's first playoff win, while Thomas Jefferson has gone four years since its last playoff win, a 3-0, first-round victory against Ford City in 2010.

The Jaguars were co-champions of Section 3-AA with Steel Valley, a team that twice beat the Wolves in nonsection matches this year. West Shamokin is the third-place team from Section 2-AA. The winner of the match advances to face No. 2 Derry in a match to be played Wednesday or Thursday at a site and time to be determined.

The seeding in Class AA indicates a belief in the strength of Section 1, which produced three of the top four seeds — No. 1 Ambridge, No. 3 Beaver County Christian and No. 4 Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.

Class A and Class AAA games that were postponed Monday were rescheduled for Tuesday.

Softball games will be played as scheduled Tuesday.
