Led by the MVP performance of senior Kenzie Fields, the Bartlett Lady Panthers are once again Region 7-3A Volleyball champions.
Last night in the Bartlett Gymnasium, the Lady Panthers advance to the title game beating Hardin County, the District 13-3A runner ups. Bartlett would face the Munford Lady Cougars after they sweep the Bolton Lady Wildcats in the other semifinal match.
It was District 13-3A champions Munford vs. District 14-3A champions Bartlett for the Region championship once again. And for the fourth straight year it was the Lady Panthers coming out on top of the rivalry this time 25-17, 23-25, 25-13 and 25-9.
Both teams advanced to Thursday’s Sectional round with Bartlett hosting Region 8-3A runner up Collierville. And Munford will travel to Region 8-3A champion Houston. Winners will advance to next week’s Class 3A State Tournament in Murfreesboro.
“This was awesome and we’ve won the Region championship the last four years,” Fields said. “This is special because this is our last Region championship.”
