Munford claws its way through losers bracket to finish second in Talladega County Tournament; Ohatchee falls in semis of Heffstrong Tournament

By East Alabama Sports Today

SYLACAUGA — Munford clawed its way back on a long road through the losers bracket to finish runner-up in the Talladega County Tournament at B.B. Comer.

After losing its opening match to Lincoln in three sets, the Lady Lions worked their back through five matches before falling to champion Sylacauga in the final 25-19, 25-15.

Sandwiched between the two losses they got their revenge over the Lincoln in their fifth match (also a three-setter) and beat Childersburg, Talladega, B.B. Comer and Fayetteville in straight sets. Ashtyn Bishop, Blair Darby and Anijah Gladden made the all-tournament team.

“Dropping to the losers bracket early in a double-elimination tournament brings a lot of adversity,” Munford coach Destinee Briskey said. “These ladies stepped up to the challenge and we couldn’t be more proud.”
