Mid-State Toyota “Athletes of the Week” RMS Lady Tigers

Stephanie King

The postseason is a time when anything can happen. An underdog can stun the crowd or a top-seed can dominate their way to a title. This week the middle school volleyball season came to a close as teams battled it out for the tournament title. One team battled their way through the tournament the same way they did the regular season by going undefeated. This week’s Mid-State Toyota “Athletes of the Week” are the RMS Lady Tigers.

After falling short in last years tournament, the Lady Tigers came into this season looking to end the season on top. They did just that and then some. RMS dominated their way through the season taking down every opponent they faced. They finished the regular season 14-0 and never lost a set to earn the top seed in the tournament. The Lady Tigers entered the tournament and continued to dominate their competition. They opened the tournament with a sweep of NAMS before sweeping the Lady Huskies of NERMS in the semifinals. RMS found themselves facing the second-seeded SWRMS Cougars in the finals and had their work cut out for them against the defending champions. The Lady Tigers claimed a hard-fought 26-24 win in the first set before suffering their first set loss of the season in the second set as SWRMS won 25-16. RMS bounced back in the third set and pulled away midway through for a 15-7 win.

RMS finishes the season 17-0 with regular season and tournament title trophies to add to their trophy case. Congratulations to the Lady Tigers on being named this week’s Mid-State Toyota “Athletes of the Week!”
