The third time was the charm for the Millington Lady Trojans against the Covington Lady Chargers.
And Millington’s victory came just in time to claim the 2015 District 15-2A Volleyball Tournament title in Jackson. The Lady Trojans swept the Lady Chargers in three sets win the championship.
During the regular season, Covington beat Millington in the first match up. The rematch was a five-set thriller going the way of the Lady Chargers.
Last night, Millington Head Coach Jenna Harper sent a group of determined Lady Trojans to the Jackson North Side court focused on reaching the goal of earning a banner for the William Osteen Gymnasium wall.
Lady Trojans to make the All-Tournament team were Addison Coulter, Ally Hall and Autumn Taylor. The tournament MVP was Millington senior Ashley Freeze.
Freeze was also named to the regular season All-District team along with teammates Paige hall and Coulter. Harper was named Coach of the Year.
Millington’s championship earned it the right to host the Region 8-2A Tournament in the William Osteen Gymnasium this Tuesday. The Lady Trojans will take on Douglass at 5 p.m. Covington and Craigmont take the court in the other Semifinal at 6:30.
The two winners will face off at 8 p.m. for the Region championship. Those two teams will qualify for Thursday’s Sectional round.
