During that time frame, Munford has reached two State Tournaments, numerous Sub-State rounds starting in 2005 and sent several players to the college level including Sarah Chambers, Cecily Gable, Lizzie McLean and Scarlet Gable.

Meanwhile the Lady Trojans were building toward a historical 2015 season seeing Millington win the District 15-2A Tournament title and reach the school’s first Sub-State round.

Although 2015 was memorable, the Lady Trojans still couldn’t solve the Munford puzzle. But that all changed last night in the Munford Gymnasium with Millington winning in four sets.

“It feels really great,” Lady Trojan Addison Coulter said. “We came in feeling they were going to be equal to us. But we came in and did great and got the win.”

The Lady Trojans controlled the opening set winning by a comfortable margin. But the final three sets were close with players like Coulter, Hannah Clifton, Kaylee Bone, Jess Trice, Camila Irizarry, Paige Hall, Olivia Ballard, Lily Morton, Dymond Green, Keiana Fieiar and Divine Lurry making crucial plays at key moments for victory.
