Hazen 3-peats as region champs
By Jarann Johnson
The Hazen Bison knew what was on the line when they entered the Region 7 tournament last week. The Bison were facing a chance to become a part of a dynasty and a story that Hazen residents would tell for many years.
Hazen didn’t falter in their chance to earn their third straight Region 7 volleyball crown. Hazen Head Coach Linette Irwin discussed how the quarterfinals went.
“In general, we played our best volleyball of the season. We got better every match. The first match against New England we had a slow start, got down several points and had to battle back – barely won that one. Then we settled in and got a little more efficient,” Irwin said. “However, we felt like we played really well that game but the stats didn’t bare that out for us. It was a good win for us.”
