Hazen VB places in silver
By Jarann Johnson
Last weekend Hazen and Beulah teamed up to host the prestigious Coal Country Invite. Hazen didn’t advance to the gold bracket but did come away with a fourth place showing in the Silver Bracket.
Hazen started their 2018 season with a solid test. They had to face off against reigning Region 5 champions Shiloh. Shiloh got the best of Hazen, earning a 2-0 sweep. Hazen’s next group play match was against Region 8 foe Ray. Hazen and Ray split the match, winning one set each.
Hazen’s last pool play match was against another state power and reigning region champion. Hazen faced off against Our Redeemer’s and fell 2-0. Both of Hazen’s losses sent them to the silver bracket tournament, which was hosted by Beulah.
