Halls volleyball team rolling in State

The Halls High School volleyball team is on a roll with the first two wins in the school’s history in the State Volleyball Tournament in Murfreesboro.

Halls opened play on Tuesday with a loss to powerhouse South Green, 12-25, 15-25, 26-24, 17-25, before bouncing back in a big way with a thrilling three-set sweep of Sale Creek, 27-25, 25-20, 25-23.

That win sent Halls to an early Wednesday morning match-up with Gatlinburg Pittman, who the Lady Tigers eliminated from the tournament with a four-set win, 25-21, 25-18, 13-25, 25-15.

Halls advanced to play again on Wednesday at approximately 2:30 p.m. against the winner of a match between South Greene and Harpeth.
