BIRMINGHAM – Spring Garden’s first volleyball season in Class 2A ended the way it did last year in Class 1A – in the Final Four. The Addison Lady Bulldogs swept the Lady Panthers 25-17, 25-17, 25-19 Tuesday evening at the Birmingham CrossPlex.
“That is our story this year. We move up in classification and make it back to the semifinals down here. Unfortunately, it’s the same result as the 1A semifinal,” Spring Garden head coach Ricky Austin said. “That doesn’t put a blemish on how proud I am of our girls and what they were able to fight through all year.
Junior outside hitter Addisyn Smothers led the Lady Bulldogs with 21 kills, three digs and an ace. Senior outside hitter Sunny Snoddy posted 14 kills and a dig. Sophomore setter Gracie Manley finished with a pair of aces, a dig and a kill.
