North Central bounced back from its first Region 4-AA volleyball loss of the season, at the hands of Andrew Jackson last week, in a big way in dominating Lee Central in three sets on Tuesday.

The Lady Knights hardly worked up a sweat in a 25-9, 25-5, 25-10 win over the Stallions to improve to 10-2 overall and 7-1 in conference play.

Logan Coates had a match-best 30 assists while serving up six aces. Gretta West and Bree Lee had nine and eight kills, respectively, with Lee adding three aces and two digs.

Abigail Durant had five kills and a block with Alexis Hackworth adding four kills, five aces and three digs. Deja Linton added four kills and a digs with Scarlett Jones having three kills, two digs and an ace for Andy Johnson’s charges.


Lady Knights take second in Carolina Challenge: West Florence, a class 5A entry, defeated tournament hostesses and top-seeded North Central in two sets to win the 11th annual Carolina Challenge volleyball tournament played on Saturday in Boonetown.

The Lady Knights were the top seed in the 12-team event at the conclusion of pool play while Lugoff-Elgin was third and West Florence was fourth.

In the opening round of pool play, NC swept past Buford, 2-0, while L-E took two straight from Hartsville. In the semifinals, NC knocked off L-E in two straight while West Florence took a pair from Indian Land to advance to the championship match.

“We had a good field of competitive play all day,” Johnson said of the tournament. “Hopefully, our players in the area can benefit from this event and we move forward late in the season.”


NC hosts annual “Dig Pink” match: The North Central volleyball program will host its “Dig Pink” match on Tuesday, Oct. 4 when Region 4-AA rival Buford comes to The Castle in Boonetown.

The doubleheader begins with the junior varsity match at 5 p.m. followed by the varsity contest at 6:30 p.m.

The night is an annual fundraiser to help support Breast Cancer Awareness Month with players and fans sharing a night of remembrance, survival and volleyball. All proceeds from the evening will benefit the Sideout Foundation for breast cancer education and research. 

The Lady Knights are asking fans to wear pink to the matches with a prize being awarded to the “pinkest” fan. Among the other activities on tap for “Dig Pink” are the Serving for a Cure contest in which fans will get a chance to win T-shirts, pizza, gift certificates and other prizes. 

Fans may also pledge a donation for their team based on the number of kills recorded during the match. Fans are also encouraged to bring their spare change to the gym as there will be a donation jar located at the pledge table.
