Lady Pirate Volleyball Begins New Season at Corydon

NewLadyPirateSMALL

NewLadyPirateSMALLThe Charlestown Lady Pirate Volleyball program, now beginning its second season under the direction of Head Coach Tammy Nuxoll; puts being competitive at the top of the season agenda.  “We are excited about getting the 2014 volleyball season started; and although its a rebuilding year (after losing six senior starters), we are looking forward to a competitive season”, commented Coach Nuxoll.  The Lady Pirates will travel to MSC rival Corydon Tuesday evening, and begin their campaign.  Being competitive may be at the top of the agenda; while program participation is not a problem this season.  The overwhelming numbers this season has made it possible to form a third team in addition to the traditional Varsity and Junior Varsity squads.  The team returns three players with Varsity experience, a hand full of returning players with junior varsity experience, while adding a talented group of eleven freshmen with a variety of school and club experience.  “We expect our upperclassman to provide leadership and promote team unity…..We also anticipate great things from our underclassman as they develop their skills” continued Coach Nuxoll.  The program is obviously headed in the right direction after several years of struggling to compete.  Tuesday evening at Corydon begins with a C-Team contest at 6 pm followed by Junior Varsity and Varsity match-ups with the Lady Panthers.  Tuesday’s season opening results will be posted by Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting via Facebook and Twitter; as well as on www.PiratePride.BLUE.
