McConnell Breaks Career Blocks Record

Congratulations are in order for Lady Pirate Volleyball’s Kylie McConnell after she broke the school record for career blocks against Henryville last night. Kylie now has 115 blocks (and counting) in her career which surpasses the previous record of 112 held by Emalee Craven from 2014-16.
Kylie also holds the record for most service aces in a match with 10 that she set against Austin last season, and she is just four away from her former teammate Kayleigh Smith’s 2017-20 112 career aces.
Good luck to Kylie and the Lady Pirates at Madison tonight and for the remainder of the season.

Charlestown Welcomes Coach Joe Witten to Lady Pirate Softball

WPMQ would like to welcome Coach Joe Witten to Charlestown Lady Pirate softball for the 2021-22 season!
Coach Witten comes to us with an extensive and impressive resume. He spent ten seasons at Floyd Central before he made the move to Indiana University Southeast where he spent the last nine seasons as the head of the Grenadiers’ very successful NAIA program.
While at Floyd Central, Coach Witten earned five Hoosier Hills Conference titles, five sectional titles, one regional title, and one state finals appearance. He was a five-time HHC Coach of the Year, a four-time ICGSA District V Coach of the Year, and a four-time Indiana All-Star game coach. With 222 wins for the Highlanders, Witten is the all time winningest coach in school history.
More recently at Indiana University Southeast, Witten compiled a 293-129-1 record and is the program’s all-time wins leader. Under his direction, the Grenadiers made six national tournament appearances in eight possible seasons. Witten was named conference Coach of the Year four times. Each of his nine Grenadier teams were named NAIA Scholar Teams with 3.0 GPAs or higher and 22 scholar-athletes were named NFCA Scholar-Athletes during his tenure. The Grenadiers placed 47 student-athletes on all-conference teams from 2013-2021.
WPMQ is excited to have Coach Witten on the softball field and in the classroom at CHS.
