Good Afternoon Falcon Fans,
The Florence Falcon Varsity Volleyball team finished the regular season with a 20-14 record. The team earned the #2 seed in the area with a 2-1 record, defeating James Clemens and Austin and falling to Bob Jones in the regular season. In the area tournament on Tuesday, Florence played James Clemens in the semi-finals and won in a best of 5 match 3-0. They won the first two games in thrilling fashion, both with scores of 25-23. Then the team took control in the third set and won 25-16 to take the match and advance to the Area Tournament finals against Bob Jones. The win over James Clemens also guaranteed them a spot at Super Regionals on Friday for the second year in a row! In area finals, the Lady Falcons fought hard against Bob Jones in the first set but eventually lost the match. With the loss to Bob Jones, the Lady Falcons are the Class 7A Area 8 Runner-Up. We are very proud of the team’s accomplishments and even more proud to be in the 7A Super Regionals making school history! We had 3 players that were selected to the Class 7A Area 8 All-Tournament Team: Breylee Linder, Zoe Busbee, and ZZ Jones. The Lady Falcons will play at the Super Regional tournament in Huntsville at the Von Braun Center on Friday October 26th at 12:45 Vs. Huntsville High School. A win over Huntsville advances them to the Super Regional semi-finals on Saturday and guarantees them a spot at the State Tournament next Wednesday in Birmingham. We hope everyone can come out and support the Lady Falcons on Friday! Tickets for the games can be purchased at the gate and online at this link https://gofan.co/app/events/37113. Thank for your support in advance. GOOOOO FALCONS!!!!!!
