Lady Pirates Sweep Borden on Senior Night
The Charlestown Lady Pirates hosted Borden Tuesday evening and celebrated its nine program Seniors. After an emotional Senior ceremony held between the Junior Varsity and Varsity matchups, the Lady Pirates swept the visiting Lady Braves 3-0 (25-12, 25-10, 25-10); improving their season record to 16-9. “Senior night is always an emotional night, but we played focused and in control the entire match. All eight seniors contributed to the win, and I’m happy that they ended their last home match on a strong performance. This group has put in a lot of time and effort to improve their skills over the past four years and are great role models for younger players. They not only excel on the court, but also in the classroom”, commented Lady Pirate Head Coach Tammy Nuxoll. Senior Kaia Reid led the offense with nine kills; while Senior Maddie Nuxoll contributed 19 assists. Sophomore Hannah Thibideau and Senior Molly Braunecker both had a good serving night. Hannah had 21 service points with 2 aces and Molly had 6 aces. Senior Chrissa Ledbetter and Molly Braunecker had a good night passing, as Molly finished the contest with twelve digs. “Although we had our last home match, we are not finished meeting the goals we set at the beginning of the year. We will come into practice to prepare for our match Thursday against South Central”, concluded Coach Nuxoll. The Charlestown Junior Varsity team evened their record at 8-8 with a 2-1 (25-12, 17-25, 15-11) victory over Borden in Tuesday’s opener.
