TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Sahuaro is back in a familiar place.

The 2nd seed Cougars advance to the quarterfinals of the state girls volleyball tournament for a third consecutive season Wednesday night, sweeping visiting Mountain View 3-0 (25-9, 25-23, 25-20).

Sahuaro will host 10th seed Peoria Liberty at 6 p.m. on Saturday night for a spot in the Division 5A Final Four.

Liberty will make a second straight trip to Tucson after upsetting 7th-seeded Cienega 3-0.

The Cougars (24-2) have been denied that Final Four berth the last two seasons. Sahuaro lost in four sets to #2 seed Goodyear Millenium in 2015 and were bounced in straight sets by top seed ironwood Ridge in 2014.

Now they are one of the top dogs sitting right behind #1 seed Peoria Centennial.

Abigail Nash led Sahuaro with 12 kills.

It was the third time this season the Cougars had beaten the Mountain Lions (15-21).
