The Lady Chiefs Volleyball Team continued their winning ways Tuesday October 27 imposing a Carthaginian peace on the Pineville Lady Rebels. The Lady Chiefs won the match 3 sets to none, not allowing the Rebels to get closer than 12 points on any individual set. From the first serve to the final point, the outcome was never in doubt, or even close, for that matter. Coach Mikki Murphy has forged together a team of heavy hitters in every sense of the word.
The NCHS Lady Chiefs Volleyball team has put up some impressive numbers this season. They are undefeated in district play and 14-3 overall. The Lady Chiefs are, by far, the winningest team of any sport, of any school, in the parish this year. They are also the youngest team of any sport in the parish, only in their 5th year as a team, with 4 of those years competing in the LHSAA. This year’s success is all the more remarkable as the team was down 4 varsity starters due to COVID quarantine and injuries.
The young women of Lady Chief Volleyball excel off the court as well. Many of the players are in the district’s gifted and talented program. Most are on the A/B honor roll. NCHS Volleyball also consistently places players on the LHSAA Composite All-Academic Team each year.
Lady Chief Volleyball will swing into action again Wednesday, October 28 at home vs the ASH Lady Trojans for their last district game. The action starts at 4:00 for the Freshmen, 5:00 for the Junior Varsity and 6:00 for the Varsity matchup. Go Lady Chiefs!
