For Atlee, it was dominance from start to finish.
For Lee-Davis, it was a comeback for the ages.
In the end, both schools were victorious in the quarterfinal round of the inaugural Class 5A South Region Tournament Tuesday night at Meadowbrook High School. Lee-Davis advanced to 20-7 with a five-set win over Conference 12 Champion L.C. Bird. The Skyhawks won the first two sets, then the Confederates fired back, finding themselves just in time to win the final three sets including 25-13 in the third, 15-6 in the tiebreaking fifth set.
18 kills from Chelsea Matthews led the way.
Atlee took the court next and had their way with Manchester, winning 25-8, 25-10, 25-12. The Raiders are 28-2, and meet Lee-Davis Wednesday, 6pm at Meadowbrook, for the fourth time this year. The winner goes to Thursday's regional final AND earns a berth in the State 5A Tournament next week at the Siegel Center.
