No. 4 East seed South Granville (28-3) earned its second berth in three years in the 2-A state championship which will be played at 5 p.m. Saturday at N.C. State’s Reynolds Coliseum, against the 2-A Western champion, No. 11 seed Hendersonville, which beat No. 8 West seed Bunker Hill 3-0 Tuesday night.

South Granville coach Christy Fitzgerald said her team played with a lot of poise against East No. 2 seed Carrboro after losing the opening set.

“We knew Carrboro was going to be a tough team,” Fitzgerald said. “We knew they were balanced a lot like us and they had a lot of weapons like us. After the first set we settled in and remembered who we were and it started to click and it started to flow.”
