GALLATIN - A perfect 10-0 district season awarded the Station Camp Bison with home court for the 2017 District Tournament. Culminating the end of a successful season, teams jockeyed for a berth in both the championship game and region tournament.
The tournament opened on Monday, Oct. 2 with McGavock defeating Hunters Lane and Hendersonville defeating Gallatin in Game 2.
Hendersonville won in straight sets against the Lady Wave, but the match was fierce and competitive throughout. During set one, teams tied at 17 before the Lady Commandos won eight of the next 12 points.
Again, both teams clamored for the lead in set two, but neither team could put any distance between as the two squads evened out at 17 all. Again, it was the Lady Commandos that rose to the occasion, winning the set 25-22.
Up 2-0, Hendersonville coasted in the third set, 25-5, in a game that was never close.
"Excited, anxious to play Station Camp and try to pull an upset," Hendersonville coach Kyla King said. "I was excited for the girls to really push through and play a clean game. I thought they played clean tonight and that was the difference."
Gallatin wraps their season at 17-12 after falling 3-0.
"This is a group that has helped us get back to where we wanted to be and start to see more success and they have laid the foundation for us to keep doing that," Gallatin coach Jerry Landers said of his six seniors.
Skyler Estep, Kendra Graves, Katie Martin, Kathryn Moss, Lily Nota, and MacKenzie Weaks will all say goodbye to the Lady Wave volleyball program.
"This is a group that came in during my second year," Landers said. "They were a group that, they would see us move up. When they came in things were low and then their freshman year a lot of them played and able to make strides, then their sophomore year more were playing at varsity and pushed up to eight, nine wins, and these past two years for the first time in a long time we've had double digit wins. This year is one of the best years we've had in a long time."
