Tattnall County High School’s Volleyball team will play in the 2022 region tournament this Saturday at Toombs County High School. Games will start at 9 a.m. with two courts going on at once.
The Lady Warriors lost their game versus Pierce County 2-0 on October 4. This game did not count as a region game, however Pierce is a region opponent. Later in the evening, the Lady Warriors won their game versus Brantley County 2-1.
Tattnall then lost their match against Vidalia High School 3-0. This game was a make-up game, previously canceled due to Hurricane Ian.
“We got so close, but just couldn’t get the win. Our girls played hard despite having some injuries and having to play some players in a different rotation,” Head Coach Ashley Findley said.
The Lady Warriors then faced Faith Baptist Christian Academy on October 13, losing 2-0. Despite losing both sets to Faith, the girls played really well together and gave 100 percent of their effort, according to Coach Findley.
“We had some players out, but others stepped up and played really well together. We were able to secure the region win against Windsor Forest 2-0. We saw them earlier in the year and were so close to beating them then, but we were so proud of the team for stepping up and winning both sets,” Findley said.
The eight teams in the region are Appling, Brantley, Pierce, Savannah Arts Academy, Tattnall, Toombs, Vidalia, and Windsor Forest.
Tattnall’s record is 9-24 overall with 12 of those 24 losses the games were neck and neck. Their region record is 3-9, and five of those nine region losses were so close as well.
“We have a lot of good competition in our region, and the top four teams from the tournament will advance to the first round of state playoffs,” Findley said. “Our team has battled sickness and injuries this season… different players stepping up when needed and helping the team. We only have one returning varsity player from last year, but these girls have played their hearts out. A lot of them have never played before until this year. We have a lot to hold our heads up regardless of our record. We have battled all season long and kept pushing ourselves to get better and minimize our mistakes. We definitely have a chance of getting in the top four in our area tournament on Saturday. We just need to stay controlled, minimize our mistakes, move our feet and focus.”
