Record Breaking Lady Pirate Volleyball Season Ends

VB2017Many of the goals this year’s senior laden Lady Pirate Volleyball team were accomplished, and on top of continued program growth and success in Head Coach Tammy Nuxoll’s fifth year.  Charlestown finished 21-10 this season, 18-12 last season, and 7-22 in her third season after over a decade of program losing seasons.  Not withstanding losing eight seniors this year, the current success is promising as evidenced by continued Junior Varsity success; and four players with quality varsity experience and talent.  Saturday morning, Charlestown’s season ended when falling to Brownstown in the semi-final round of the Silver Creek Sectional (10-25, 14-25, & 13-25).  The program did gain eight families of supporters that likely will continue to follow a program they believe in for years to come.  “It’s always difficult when your season comes to end.  Brownstown has a good program, and they were the better team today.  Despite the loss, I cannot say enough about this team and the senior leadership we had this season.  We will definitely feel the impact of losing these 8 seniors.  They have been the backbone of the program, and have left high expectation for those that follow them.  I’m proud of this entire team and the 21-10 record they earned this season”, summarized Head Coach Nuxoll.  Senior Kaia Reid led the offense against Brownstown with 9 kills and Hannah Vincent led the defense with 11 digs.  “This program will work hard to continue its positive success”, concluded Coach Nuxoll.  Photo courtesy of Jeremy Vincent.

Lady Pirates Advance with 3-0 Sweep of Salem

SectionalVBThe Charlestown High School Lady Pirate Volleyball team (21-9) advanced to Saturday’s Class 3A Sectional #30 Semi-Final round by dispatching Salem 28-26, 25-21, & 25-17 Tuesday evening at Silver Creek.  “I am happy that we were able to get a round one win under our belt.  This is the first post season win since I took over the program five years ago, so I am proud of our program.  We did not play our best tonight, but I’m glad we were able to stay composed when Salem came back to make the matches close in the first and second sets.  Salem’s #10 (Brown) gave our passers trouble with her serve, and Salem was able to cut into some large leads that we had, but we continued to hang on for the wins. We are still battling with a few injuries, so I’m hoping not playing again until Saturday will help us have more time to heal,” summarized Lady Pirate Head Coach Tammy Nuxoll.  Charlestown’s offense was led by Kaia Reid, who finished the game with 11 kills; and Fresham Kayleigh Smith who had 9 kills on the night.  Senior Maddie Nuxoll contributed 30 assists and 15 service points.  The defense was led by Senior Chrissa Ledbetter’s 17 digs; while Seniors Molly Braunecker and Hannah Vincent added 12 digs each respectively.  “We will have to put it all together and play our best in the next round against Brownstown”, concluded Coach Nuxoll.  Charlestown and Brownstown, who drew the sectional bye, will clash in Saturday’s 11:00 am Semi-Final game at Silver Creek High School.  If you can make it to the game, you can listen to it live at www.CPPSB.com.  Photo courtesy of Michael Thibideau.
