The top four seeds triumphed Tuesday during the first round of the Cook Inlet Conference volleyball tournament.

South, Dimond and Bartlett all scored sweeps, and the third-seeded East Thunderbirds got past sixth-seeded Chugiak in four sets.

The winners don’t play again until Thursday. The losers face elimination Wednesday. All remaining action is at Service High.

In first-round games Tuesday at South High, the top-seeded South Wolverines downed eighth-seeded Eagle River 25-18, 25-13, 25-17, and the fourth-seeded Bartlett Golden Bears tripped fifth-seeded West 25-23, 25-19, 25-17.

At Dimond High, the second-seeded Dimond Lynx defeated seventh-seeded Service 25-19, 25-16, 25-9, and East beat Chugiak 25-7, 14-25, 25-20, 25-20.
