Ensworth Advances to TSSAA Final 4
The Ensworth Lady Tigers defeated the Harpeth Hall Honey Bears 3-2 (18-25, 25-19, 25-19, 23-25, 15-10) in a TSSAA DII-AA Quarter-Final Match Thursday evening at the Ensworth High Gymnasium. The win sends the Lady Tigers back to Murfreesboro and the TSSAA Final 4 for the 5th time in the last 6 years and the second time in a row for 3rd year coach Ann Mullins. The match was intense and heated throughout although marred by several questionable calls by the officials and some errant score-keeping. Several times the score-keepers had to adjust the scoreboard after crediting the wrong team with points.
Harpeth Hall surprised the Lady Tigers early with some big hits from outside hitter Maddie Forbes and took the first set 25-18.
