Coffee County Central’s volleyball team made history Tuesday night.

For the first time in the program’s existence, the Lady Raiders won the region-semi-finals to advance to the region championship game and earn a spot in the state sectional.

Coffee County got double digit kills from three players and a remarkable 22 digs from junior Lauren Brandt to drop Rockvale 3-1 Monday at Joe Frank Patch Memorial Gymnasium. The win advanced the Lady Raiders to the Region 4-AAA Championship game where Coffee County fell to Siegel 3-0.

But the win over Rockvale guarantees the Lady Raiders in the state sectional on Thursday. The Lady Raiders will travel to Cookeville with a trip to the TSSAA state volleyball tournament on the line. Thunder Radio will be there to broadcast the match.

Munn and Ferrell each served up three aces.

The win over Rockvale and the loss to Siegel moves the Lady Raiders to 20-5 on the season.

After the tournament, Maddie Husted, Keri Munn and Kiya Ferrell were named to the Region 4-AAA All-Region Team.
