MILLINGTON 25, 25 & 25 JACKSON NORTH SIDE 20, 12 & 17
The Millington Lady Trojans were going through the motions Aug. 29 waiting on the Jackson North Side Lady Indians to arrive to the William Osteen Gymnasium.
While the delay took place, some of Head Coach Tamarah Brandon’s players were practicing their serves, bumping the ball and sharing laughs. Maybe the reason for the smiles and joking was the opponent coming for the District 15-2A contest.
Last season the Lady Trojans dominated each contest against JNS and expected to do the same Aug. 29. But the Lady Indians had other ideas once they walked into the Millington Gymnasium.
JNS pushed Millington in the first set with the Lady Trojans holding on for a 25-20 victory. Once the Lady Trojans settled down, Millington took the next two sets 25-12 and 25-17.
