The BGA volleyball team 

The Battle Ground Academy volleyball team will be competing for a district championship for a fourth consecutive year on Thursday.

The Lady Wildcats posted a 25-14, 25-10, 25-19 win Tuesday against Middle Tennessee Christian in the Division II-A District 3 Tournament semifinals at Columbia Academy. BGA, the No. 2 seed, will face top-seeded Franklin Road Academy Thursday for the district title and two decide the top seed for the upcoming regional tournament.

Hana Robertson and Kearstyn Seay each recorded eight kills to lead the Lady Wildcats Tuesday. Seay added two blocks and two aces, while Ally Newkirk and Campbell Dobbs combined for 28 assists to guide the offense.

BGA swept Providence Christian Academy 25-20, 25-22, 25-17 in the district quarterfinals on Monday. Robertson had six kills and seven aces in that contest.

In the last meeting with FRA, the Lady Wildcats fell 25-15, 20-25, 25-27, 21-25 on Sept. 17. At the end of August, the Lady Panthers prevailed in a five-set match as well.

FRA tipped Grace Christian Academy 3-1 to advance to the championship match. GCA will face Middle Tennessee Christian for third place Thursday.

The Lady Patriots rallied to win three straight against Ravenwood in a District 12-AAA battle Tuesday. Page fell 26-24, 25-22 in the first two games, but regrouped to win the match by taking the next three 25-22, 27-25, 16-14.
