BELGRADE -- The Townsend volleyball team was crowned the District 5B champion on Friday night, as the Bulldogs defeated Jefferson 3-1 (27-25, 25-18, 26-28, 25-19) in the title game.

The Bulldogs dominated their way through the tournament, sweeping Three Forks in the opening round, before doing the same to the Panthers earlier Friday morning to punch their ticket to the title game. The Bulldogs now earn a one seed in the Southern B divisional tournament next Thursday at Columbus High School. By making the championship game, Jefferson is also headed to divisionals as a two-seed.

The Southern B divisional tournament will be Nov. 7-9 in Columbus.
