Tuesday’s results were so wild that it warrants its own quick recap. So, let’s break it all down.

 

Metro Chaos

The Metro Conference Tournament has delivered its usual excitement and a whole lot more. What a day.

In particular, there were two big upsets in the quarterfinal round that have everyone buzzing. Bellevue West, which has demonstrated its ability to compete with anyone this year, took down Class A #2 Millard West in a three-set thriller. After coming so close to several signature wins throughout the regular season, the Thunderbirds have undoubtedly scored a big one.

The drama would not end there, as Omaha Westside would then conquer the mighty Elkhorn South, a program coming off title runs in this tournament and the state championships last season. It was a night of career milestones for Destiny Ndam-Simpson Destiny Ndam-Simpson 6'1" | OH Omaha Westside | 2023 State NE , Madilyn Siebler Madilyn Siebler 6'0" | OH Omaha Westside | 2022 State NE , and Jocelyn Healy Jocelyn Healy 5'8" | DS/L Omaha Westside | 2023 State NE . It was, in short, a perfect storm to defeat the Storm.

Now, these two teams, fresh off their spectacular victories, will face each other in the semifinal round at Baxter Arena. On the other side of the bracket, Papillion-La Vista South and Gretna have taken care of business to meet again
