Jersey girl: Bartlett High honors most decorated volleyball player


Bartlett High School has a very good reason to retire Kenzie Fields’ jersey. In fact, the school has 2,355 reasons.

That’s the number of her career kills during her four-year volleyball stint at the school.

As the most decorated volleyball player ever to walk the halls of Bartlett High, she was honored in a Friday ceremony.

She became the first volleyball player in the school’s history to have her jersey number retired. A banner also lists her name, her years at the school and that big, beautiful number of 2,355.

At the Friday ceremony, her coach read out her Bartlett High career stats:

  • Third in the state of Tennessee
  • 714 in a season, sixth in the state
