Baylor volleyball advances to state final

Posted: Updated:

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WRCB) -- Five local teams entered Thursday still alive for a state championship, but only one survived the day.

Baylor will play for the Division II-AA state volleyball championship Friday afternoon at Middle Tennessee State University, but the Chattanooga area's four other contenders all saw their seasons come to an end.

Signal Mountain posted the best finish of the bunch, finishing fourth overall in the state in Class AA. The Eagles eliminated local foe Red Bank Thursday morning with a 3-2 win before falling to Hume-Fogg in another elimination match later in the day.

Ooltewah and Boyd-Buchanan both lost elimination matches early Thursday. The Owls finished 44-12 overall after a 3-0 loss to Dobyns-Bennett, while the Lady Bucs blew a 2-0 lead in a five-set loss to Loretto to finish 31-15 overall.

Baylor has only played two matches this week, but has won them both. The Lady Red Raiders topped St. Agnes 3-1 in Thursday's winner's bracket final to secure their spot in the state final.

St. Agnes later eliminated Ensworth to earn a rematch with Baylor with the championship on the line. The match will be streamed live by starting at 1 p.m. ET Friday.
