CLASS AAA: Farragut 3, Franklin 0
Franklin made its exit from the 2015 Class AAA State Volleyball Championships on Thursday morning, suffering a 3-0 defeat to Farragut — the Lady Rebels’ second loss to a Knoxville-area squad in three matches.
Franklin (30-13), which suffered a 3-1 opening-round defeat to Bearden on Wednesday before bouncing back to beat White Station 3-2 in an elimination match, dropped the first set 25-13, and the 2014 Class AAA runner-up Lady Admirals claimed a 25-17 second set win.
The Lady Rebels rebounded in set three, however, building a 23-18 advantage, but Farragut rebounded late, eventually finishing off Franklin with a 27-25 win.
Farragut will face the winner of Bearden vs. Houston in Thursday’s 2:30 p.m. loser’s bracket final.
