At Rexburg, the Madison volleyball team beat Thunder Ridge in five sets Thursday to win the 5A district VI-V tournament and clinch a top seed in next week's state tournament. 
Set scores were 22-25; 26-24; 21-25; 30-28; 15-8.
"It was kind of scary,"Madison head coach Meranda Maestas said. "They played really well and it was just intense all night and I think we a little surprised when we came out to play and we let our nerves get to us early on. Around set four we kind of settled in and started fighting and started playing our game and making the adjustments we needed to beat them." 
Madison will play Boise in the first round of the tournament in north Idaho on Nov. 1.
