Lady Ads beat BHS,wrap up district

Bearden and Farragut met for the second time on the volleyball court this year, and although the VolleyDogs played a closer match were unable to capture the win.

The Lady Ads won the match 25-20, 25-12, 25-14, and went on to clench the District 4-AAA regular season championship with a win over William Blount (25-19, 25-18, 25-10), while the VolleyDogs recorded a win over Lenoir City (25-17, 25-19, 25-20).

The Lady Ads ended regular season district play perfect at 14-0, 37-4 overall entering the week. Bearden falls to 22-13 on the season and 8-6 in district play.

“We didn’t play very well against Lenoir City,” Bearden head coach Jennifer Allen said. “We played a lot of freshman and they did a pretty good job. They’re just starting to get a little bit of playing time. Farragut, I thought we played pretty well; we’re still down one of our hitters. Farragut is tough. I thought we played pretty well, we just didn’t have enough.”

Against Farragut, Brandy Prost had four kills and four digs for the VolleyDogs and Caroline Winstel tallied one ace, six kills and three digs.

On the other side of the net, Farragut was led by Diana Deer with 14 service points, eight straight points coming in the second game. Deer “got us going when we were playing kind of sluggish,” Farragut head coach David Moore said.

Kelsey Benorden had 15 kills and three blocks, Amanda Mitchell had nine kills and six blocks and Lindsey West tallied 16 assists.

In the second match-up of the night, Lindsay Granger led Bearden against Lenoir City with 21 points, four aces, two kills and four digs, followed by Paige Graham who recorded five points, four aces and three kills.

“I think we could have played better (against Lenoir City), but a win’s a win,” Granger said.

In Farragut’s game against William Blount, Eden Watts had seven kills, three aces and seven points; Kelsey Benorden had nine kills and six aces, while Amanda Mitchell recorded 10 kills and eight blocks.

Farragut also finished fifth in the Middle Tennessee Classic Friday and Saturday, Sept. 29-30, in Murfreesboro.

On Friday the Lady Ads won against Blackmon (26-24, 25-22) and Pope John Paul High School (25-23, 25-18). Dixon High School forfeited its mach Friday due to homecoming.

On Saturday, Farragut lost the first three matches in poole play against Centennial (17-25, 22-25), Knoxville Catholic (21-25, 25-11, 7-15) and Lavergne (25-27, 26-24, 14-16).

The Lady Admirals beat Lebanon (25-16, 24-26, 15-8) in the gold bracket before losing in the quarterfinals against Notre Dame (28-26, 16-25, 3-15).

“It was kind of an up and down weekend,” Moore said. “Kelsey has a pretty good weekend for us; she was her solid, consistent self.

“A spark came from Cara Gregg. We brought her in to serve and she did a good job. It’s that time of year when it’s a little bit tougher. We’re playing some good teams.”
