Estes earns national title with Tampa 18 Black

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Adding another championship to her resume before arriving on campus in a few weeks, Lipscomb volleyball incoming freshman Brittnay Estes and the Tampa Bay Juniors 18 Black took home the 2012 USA Volleyball 18 Open National Championship at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Coming into the tournament ranked third in the nation, the 18 Black topped the Sky High 18 Black from Crystal Lake, Ill., 2-1 (25-23, 19-25, 15-12) to claim the national title.

An outside hitter from Palm Harbor, Fla., Estes also helped lead her East Lake High School squad to back-to-back state championships.

The Lipscomb volleyball team heads into the 2012 season looking for its fourth-straight Atlantic Sun Conference championship and NCAA tournament appearance.
