MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- The Boyd-Buchanan Lady Buccaneers gave it everything they had against Friendship Christian on Thursday in the winner's bracket final of the Class A state volleyball tournament.
The Lady Commanders won that match in a tight fight by a 3-2 final.
They met again at Murphy Center on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University on Friday afternoon with a state title on the line.
Unfortunately for the Lady Bucs, the result was the same as Thursday, except this latest clash wasn't nearly as close or competitive.
Friendship Christian won its second-straight Class A title with the 3-0 victory, breezing to wins by scores of 25-13, 25-11 and 25-18.
The Lady Commanders conclude another brilliant season at 57-4 while the Lady Bucs were equally as outstanding and finished at 33-15.
"Yesterday's match took a lot out of us physically and emotionally and we knew we wouldn't be able to play timid if we expected to win," said Boyd-Buchanan coach Ashley Rose when the match ended.
"If you had told me two months ago that we would have been playing for a state title here today, I would have laughed and called you a liar, but we peaked at just the right time. We're the only team to win a game from them and we won two yesterday, but they brought it today.
"It's been fun as we enjoyed a lot of success this year," Rose added.
Friendship Christian coach Randy Alley was just happy that his girls played with much more composure on Friday than they did on Thursday.
"We were anxious and tight in yesterday's match, but we were more in control today," Alley suggested afterward.
"I really didn't think we had a prayer coming in after the way Boyd-Buchanan played yesterday. Their coach had them ready to play as they know what they're doing. I guess that yesterday was just a good wakeup call for us.
"Today's match was more our style of play as we try to win at the net. Our game is to hit it hard up front, but I'm just glad that our girls were more relaxed today. They went out and got the job done," Alley added.
Katilyn Teeter and Alex Sealy are the two heavy hitters up front for the Lady Commanders. They had the ability to dominate a match and that was certainly the case Friday afternoon.
Teeter finished with 14 kills and 13 digs while serving one ace and getting one block. She earned MVP honors for her effort.
Sealy was equally as impressive with a dozen kills. She also had six digs and a half-dozen blocks as Boyd-Buchanan was never able to get any kind of rhythm going.
Sarah Hall also had 32 assists for the winners.
Jessica Kirk had six kills to lead the Lady Bucs while Mandi Jones had 20 digs.
Kirk also had 11 digs while teammates Kristen Reynolds and Lindsey Yates both finished with 10 apiece. Yates also had a dozen assists.
