The Lady Jackets volleyball team had a very successful week. The girls played a total of 16 matches between September 13 and September 20, the highlight being winning the Warren County Invitational Tournament over Coffee County.
“I’m very proud of the girls and they continue to work towards precision as they near post-season play,” said Coach Allison Borne.
Grundy lost two tough district matches during the week to Signal Mountain and to Notre Dame.
“In each of these matches, they played extremely well and the girls saw that they have what it takes to compete with these types of teams. They ended the week with an extraordinary win over a very talented Coffee County team in the finals of the Warren County Invitational Tournament,” said the coach.
After losing earlier in the day in three very close sets to Coffee, the girls won the first two sets of the best two out of three final with the Lady Raiders.
“The girls were ecstatic, especially the seniors who had never beaten Coffee County since they have been in high school. We finished 5-2 during the tournament on Saturday. The girls were exhausted, but they just kept playing so hard. They played with mental toughness and a want-to that I’ve wanted to see for a while,” added the pleased coach.
Grundy traveled on Monday to Marion County. Tuesday they hosted district foe Sequatchie County. Wednesday they traveled to St. Andrews-Sewanee. Today they host both district opponent Bledsoe County and Saint Andrews. There’s just one more week of regular season play after this and then it’s on to the district tournament. Coach Borne said she was excited to see how far these girls can go.
