KC volleyball trio home for playoff openers
Lady Knights take Region 3-A title
Placeholder Image
It looks like someone will have to bring the banner heralding North Central’s girls’ volleyball region championships, down from the rafters again, to add "2011" to the program’s ever-growing list. On Thursday, Andy Johnson’s charges took down Chesterfield in four games --- in a one-match playoff at Buford High School --- to capture the Region 3-A championship. It was the fifth conference crown in as many years for the Lady Knights, which improved to 17-1 overall and 8-1 in Region 3-A. NC, the second-ranked class A team in the latest state volleyball coaches’ association poll, will open post-season play tonight when it hosts North, the Region 4 fourth-place finisher, in a 6 p.m. best-of-five match at The Castle in Boonetown.
