The NCHS Ladies Volleyball team played with their customary class, grit and determination Thursday, November 5 at their first playoff match vs. The Southside Lady Sharks of Lafayette. Unfortunately, the Chiefs fell to the Sharks, 3 sets to two, in a hotly contested match that saw neither team achieve a commanding lead as the score of each set alternated back and forth, finally requiring a fifth set to decide the match.
While the playoff results were not as we would have hoped, Lady Chief Volleyball has set an enviable record of excellence on and off the court this year. The team was undefeated in district play and easily cinched the District Championship. The girls are a fixture on the NCHS Honor Roll and exemplify everything that a student-athlete should be on the court and in the classroom.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal is donating the evening’s photography. The players and their families are welcome to download any photos they wish.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal would also like to commend the NCHS Student section. In every match I have attended, the student section filled the bleachers and kept up a vociferous level of support akin to an erupting volcano.
