COLD SPRINGS — West Point is back on top, even though it never left.

The Lady Warriors went back-to-back on Tuesday night, defeating Fairview (25-22, 25-17) in the championship match of the Cullman County Volleyball Tournament for the second straight year and improving to 39-13.

It was the third match between the teams inside Jesse George Gymnasium, with No. 2 West Point claiming the first (27-25, 25-18) earlier in the day and the top-seeded Lady Aggies winning the second (26-24, 20-25, 15-11) later on to force the decisive clash.

Before that second match, Fairview outlasted No. 3 Good Hope (25-13, 17-25, 15-7) to advance to the finale.

In the end, though, the Lady Warriors played the best when it mattered most.

"I’m so proud," West Point coach Regina Jones said. "They knew we were evenly matched and that it could go either way. There was no way they were going to give up (after dropping that second match). This was one of our goals. We want to put West Point on that county title list more than one time and show that we can play volleyball as well. Again, I’m super proud."

The Lady Warriors were led by senior Lexi Shadix, who secured MVP honors for the second straight year.

It didn't always come easy for Shadix and Co. on Tuesday night, but the end result was worth the struggle.

"It feels really good," she said. "We knew what we had to do. Both teams were tired, but we ended up pulling through. Our goal was to get up on them in the final match, so we could get the momentum. It was tough losing the first match, because we had the mentality that we were winning. That’s the only mentality we had. When we lost, we were like, ‘Oh, gosh, we’ve got to get it together.’ But we pulled through, so everything was good."

West Point's varsity roster consists of Shadix, Ryleigh Jones, Braelee Quinn, Kylee Quinn, Kayla Kilpatrick, Kyla Kilpatrick and Sydney Sellers.
