Volleyball: Oak Ridge back on track for fall

Playoff berth just the beginning of objectives for Oak Ridge

Oak Ridge volleyball is back on track.

The War Eagles missed the playoffs in 2010 and 2011, finishing fourth and sitting out on a tiebreaker both years, but they started a new streak of postseason appearances with their second straight last year. They went 26-11 overall, and 7-5 in District 14-5A.

Coach Tommie Lynn Sledge, who’s heading into her sixth season, said the girls matured last year, setting higher expectations for themselves and working hard to find the right team chemistry. “It was really good,” Sledge said.

“We had three years in a row where we’d been to the playoffs, and then we missed out (two years), so to get back again was great.” click HERE for complete story
