KINGSPORT — For Dobyns-Bennett’s volleyball team, Monday’s Region 1-AAA tournament marked the end of the road.

But after sweeping Morristown East and Morristown West to win the regional championship, Sullivan South seemed like a team that’s just getting started.

The Lady Rebels swept past East 25-13, 25-22, 25-14 in the semifinals before sending the Lady Trojans packing with a tidy 25-20, 25-15, 25-12 result in the championship game.

With the win, South will be back in its home gym again on Thursday night at 7 o’clock to host a sectional contest against the Region 2-AAA runner-up with a berth into the TSSAA Class AAA state tournament up for grabs.

West — which reached the sectionals for the first time in school history by beating D-B 26-24, 25-23, 25-21 — will hit the road to face the Region 2-AAA champion on Thursday.
