The Wakulla volleyball team punched their ticket to the Class 5A Regional Finals with the sweep over Gulf Breeze Thursday night.

"It's really exciting," said head coach Elizabeth Andrews-Potts. "This is what we've been working for all year, and I'm glad it paid off for them."

The War Eagles fell in the Elite Eight last season to eventual State Champion Ponte Vedra, who they will face again on Saturday in the Regional Finals.

"We come in for 3-4 hour practices every day and we love each other and that's what it comes down too," said senior Madison Evans. "We're here for one another and we're willing to do what it takes."

Wakulla travels to face Ponte Vedra Saturday at 2:00. In Class 2A, St. John Paul II hosts Christ's Church at 2:00. Defending Class 6A State Champion Leon is at home on Saturday. They host Niceville at 2:00.

In Class 1A, seven time defending State Champion Sneads hosts Blounstown at 2:00/CT.
