Recommended Posts



"This was just a dream to come here," Lee High's Amber Johnson said after falling in the 2A state title match.

Lee had watched video of Marion during the week leading up to the game, but seeing the Hurricanes in person was a lot different.

"On video we just saw their two strong middle hitters," Bowles said. "Out there they had very strong outside hitters, some strong right-side hitters. They ran different sets and a different offense than what we were seeing. When we watched film they only ran one kind of set from the middle and not very many slides and stuff like that. I think they ran a lot against us."

Jennifer Williams also thought Marion's defense read Lee well and adjusted. Lee faced some other solid teams this year, including Bruton, Turner Ashby and Spotswood, but Marion was probably the most all-around consistent team Lee played all season, according to Bowles.
