The third time was the charm for the Lady Bulldogs.

On Saturday, and for the third year in a row, Kingman worked its way to the championship match in the Mary Jo Goldey Invitational Volleyball Tournament at Lake Havasu High School.

However, unlike the previous two times, it was Kingman coming out the victor.

"I was starting to think we were jinxed," joked KHS head coach Traci Rosenbach.

The Lady Bulldogs swept Gilbert Williams Field to win the championship after having advanced over the previous two tournament winners - host Lake Havasu and Parker - in the quarter and semifinals.

"I have to admit, I was worried when I saw the bracket and saw we had to go through Havasu and Parker to get to the championship," Rosenbach said.

"They're both tough teams and you always worry about a let down when you're playing a team that you've previously beaten."

Kingman defeated Havasu in regular season play on Aug. 30 and Sept. 4.

"Parker beat us in pool play. But I think that motivated us. We were ready for Parker," Rosenbach said.

After the final match, Kingman outside hitter Natalie Casson and setter Gabby Huffer were named tournament MVPs.

The pool loss to the Lady Broncs was the only blemish on the day for KHS, who finished 5-1 in pool play, won the crossover game and came into bracket play seeded No. 3 to Williams Field and Parker. Both of those teams went undefeated in pool play.
