Baylor

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — For the last five years Baylor has finished at least third in the TSSAA Division II-AA state volleyball tournament.

Storyline: After playing tough against top-ranked Brentwood Academy last week, Baylor has another rugged task in this Division II-AA East/Middle Region game.

It's the time of year in high school volleyball when unfamiliarity becomes a familiar word for many programs.

At times they've been the few, but they've always been proud.

I have a question. What would the near-future TSSAA classification look like without the 1.8 multiplier slapped on private schools whose desire is to remain in the public school division?

• Baylor (5-3, 2-2) at Ensworth (6-1, 3-1), 8 • Bradley Central (2-5, 0-3) at Soddy-Daisy (4-4, 1-3) • Central (6-2, 3-2) at Hixson (6-2, 4-0)

The way things began Saturday at Baylor, it looked as though the home team was going to have its way with St. Benedict Academy and coast its way into the TSSAA Division II-AA volleyball state semifinals.

Last week, Brentwood Academy cheerleader Griffin Cole and the rest of the Eagles faithful blew into Chattanooga, flexed their muscles and strolled back to Nashville with an easy win.

Storyline: The Eagles complete the Scenic City swing after coming to town and blasting McCallie last week.

Baylor junior Crosby Huckabay had her choice of a few NCAA Divison I softball offers but has made the decision to continue her career Georgia Tech.

Soddy-Daisy quarterback Hunter Maynor may have been unsung entering the 2014 high school season, but it's unlikely that he is being overlooked.

• district/region game • Bradley Central (0-3, 2-5) at McMinn County (2-1, 2-5) • Brainerd (2-2, 2-6) at Tyner (1-2, 1-6) • Brentwood Academy (7-1, 3-1) at Baylor (5-2, 2-1)

Storyline: The Red Raiders rake their show to Murfreesboro after a tough rivalry loss to McCallie. Baylor's offense never got going last week, and its defensive front will be tested this week against an Oakland offensive line that includes University of Tennessee commitments Kyle Oliver at TE and Jack Jones at OT.

In a tough District 5-AAA loss last Friday to McMinn County, Soddy-Daisy quarterback Hunter Maynor set a city single-game passing record by throwing for 451 yards.
