Volleyball: Greenbrier (27-5) vs. Johns Creek (47-9)
Tuesday at 5 p.m.
In the opening round of AAAA state volleyball playoffs, Greenbrier High School took down an opponent, Hiram, with a 39-6 record.
While Johns Creek has a similar winning percentage, there’s no doubt that its body of work proves the Wolfpack face a much stiffer challenge in Round 2.
The Gladiators are ranked No. 4 in the state and took down No. 6 Sequoyah in the opening round. They made the state Final Four last year.
Greenbrier last made the Elite Eight in 2009, when the Wolfpack played in Class AAAAA.
Head coach Debbie Born believes a tough early schedule that included out-of-town tournaments in Atlanta will help her team. It has seen top competition and benefited from it, she said.
