Maddie Nuxoll did a nice job of mixing up the sets and Hannah Vincent, Chrissa Ledbetter and Sidney Goedeker did a terrific job with passing and defense. Very proud of our play tonight and look to continue it in our conference match against Scottsburg on Thursday”, summarized Coach Tammy Nuxoll.  The Charlestown JV team was also successful versus Austin in the opener Monday evening, winning the best of three match 25-15, 24-25, and 15-13.  Listen to the varsity game broadcast by going to and clicking on the archived broadcast schedule.
