Coming into the Friday’s match, the Boyd Lady Jackets were riding the wave of emotion from beating Peaster in a top-10 showdown and making their first trip the region tournament.

Boyd rallies to unseat region champ Peaster

Published Tuesday, November 7, 2017
By Messenger staff

Last year on election night, the Boyd Lady Yellowjackets’ season ended with a loss to the eventual 3A runner-up Peaster. After dropping the first set and falling behind 6-1 and later 24-15 in the second Tuesday, it appeared the Lady Yellowjackets’ challenge to the incumbent Region I champion would fall short again. But behind the serving of Kamryn Frenzel and a frenzied defense, the Lady Yellowjackets staved off set point and began their rally. Boyd won the set 26-24 to get back in the match. Three games later, Boyd ended Peaster’s tenure as region champion with a dramatic victory in the 3A Region I quarterfinal at Jacksboro High School (22-25, 26-24, 21-25, 25-22, 15-12).
