“I am so very proud of this team, especially the seniors,” said WCHS coach Katie Rogers. “This group of seniors has fought through different adversities over their four years in the program. They have been coached by three different people in four years. That is a lot to deal with, especially when each coach came from different volleyball backgrounds, had different expectations, and were so different in their ages. These four seniors were able to hang in there and helped our team go from the worst team in the district to a major threat in District 6-AAA in their four-year tenure. The seniors have paved the way for the underclassmen to do even greater things in the future, and for that we are so thankful. I’m going to miss these seniors as they each brought so much energy, joy and a little goofiness to the Lady Pioneer volleyball team.”
In addition to the varsity win, the JV team routed Shelbyville in two games, 25-12 and 25-11 for the match win. The JV team has a 12-3 record.
