When the Morgan County volleyball championship rolled around, few expected any team besides Hartselle to leave as champions. The Tigers had steamrolled through their schedule and came in with a 54-9 record and a third place ranking in the state. However, the hosting Brewer Patriots would have plenty to say about who would walk out as champs.

Nine teams from the county would compete for the title and be split into three pool. In the first pool, Hartselle would defeat both Decatur Heritage and Falkville to advance straight to the semi-finals. Decatur Heritage would then get the win over Falkville to earn the first seed runner up in the quarterfinals.

In pool 2, Brewer would sweep both West Morgan and Priceville to advance to the semis. The Patriots would beat West Morgan by a score of 25-14 in the last match and Priceville 25-10 to advance.

In pool 3, the Danville Hawks defeated Decatur and Austin to advance to the quarterfinals. The Hawks crushed Austin 25-7 in the last match to advance.

In the quarterfinals, Danville defeated Decatur Heritage and West Morgan defeated Austin to advance to the semis. Danville would take on Brewer but would fall to the Patriots in two sets. Hartselle would take care of West Morgan in two sets by scores of 25-15 and 25-12.

Hartselle and Brewer would face off in the championship round. The Tigers took the lead in the first set but Brewer came from behind to win 25-22. Hartselle would dominate the Patriots in the second set to win 25-13 and set up a winner take all set. The Patriots would defeat Hartselle 15-11 and win the county championship.
