It was David versus Goliath Thursday at Union County High School as the biggest school in the 2nd Region matched up with the smallest school in the region during the 2nd Region volleyball tournament and unfortunately for University Heights Academy, history usually finds a way of repeating itself.
Henderson County took down the Lady Blazers 3-0 to retain its fourth-straight 2nd Region crown.
Despite the loss Thursday, the Lady Blazers did things this season they hadn’t done consistently since the program began. Things like All “A” Classic State Tournaments and region finals haven’t come in bunches for UHA, but Hendricks hopes that becomes the norm.
“I think that it’s really critical experience for our younger players to have,” she said. “Hopefully they remember the feelings of loss that we experienced and that helps them push to work harder in practice, push to get better in the offseason, push to do everything so that when we get into these big situations and we find ourselves in the region championship that we have a little bit of experience and energy and can come out on the winning side.”
