VB: District tourney starts today at McNairy

School is closed today – out all week, in fact, for Fall Break.

There’s no rest today, though, for South Side’s volleyball team as the Lady Hawks open play in the District 13-AA tournament at McNairy Central.

South Side plays Hardin County at 6 p.m. Bolivar plays McNairy at 7 p.m.

The South Side/Hardin County winner advances to play Tuesday at Lexington. The Bolivar/McNairy winner advances to play at Chester County.

“It’s game day,” South Side coach Kimberly McNeal said. “They are prepared to win. The girls know what they need to do. They are ready for this moment. Every girl knows they play an important role, and to be ready if their number is called upon. I’m ready to watch them work.”

The Lady Hawks enter the district tournament coming off a three-set home win against Bolivar on Sept. 28 to close out the regular season.
