The Grand Island boys volleyball has advanced to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association state tournament for the first time in school history.

Grand Island beat Section V champion Churchville Chili in four games Saturday. Game scores were 21-25, 25-21, 25-20 and 25-12.

In the first game, the teams were tied at 19-19 before Churchville scored three consecutive points and eventually won the game. But the tide shifted from there. Leading two games to one, Grand Island roared to a 14-6 lead in the fourth game and plowed to the victory.
