Carrollton Volleyball made the trek to Rome, Ga on Saturday to defend their 2017 Region crown, and once again came out on top of 7-AAAAA. The Trojans faced Rome twice on Saturday, beating them once in the semis only to face them again after the Wolves outlasted Kell in the lower bracket.
The Trojans made a clean sweep of the Wolves, winning game 1, 25-8, game 2, 25-13 and squeaking by in game 3, 25-22 to close-out the match and take the crown.
"It was truly a team effort as we had several players in different positions and even some players who came off the sidelines to make big plays," Coach Kasey Austin recaps. "We are very proud of how our team performed and their ability to work together. This has been a goal of ours since the summer and we feel confident moving forward into the post season."
Earlier on Saturday, Kelsey Thomas and Macie Monsour were named to the 7-AAAAA All-Region Team. Paige Blackmon and Allie Dishman received Honorable Mention.
"We are so proud of their hard work and dedication to their team and glad they were recognized as some of the best in the region," said Austin.
The Trojans will host North Springs on Saturday, October 20, in the first round of the 5A State Playoffs
