Unfinished Business: CHS Volleyball
At Columbus High School, students strive to succeed at sports, academics, and extracurricular activities. One of Columbus High’s best programs is volleyball. Winning the state championship two years ago, and last year’s final four experiences, Columbus High’s varsity volleyball team is striving to complete this year with determination and success.
"Challenges can only be positive. When you are pushed out of your comfort zone, it is a good thing because every hardship is put in your life to teach you a lesson. You live and you learn,” senior Sydney Blackmon stated.
This year, six seniors hit the spotlight. Ashley Cox ( setter ), Sydney Blackmon, ( Outside Hitter & DS), Maddi Carson ( Middle Hitter/ Blocker ), Virginia Dozier( Outside Hitter & DS ), Samyra Perrymond ( DS ), and this years libero, Eleanor Todd. All have extremely important strengths and show both players on Varsity, and JV/ Freshman what it is like to put everything you have into something you love.
This October 1st, is this year's last and final home game. It is also this year's Senior Night. All six seniors would love your continuous support, and would appreciate you come out to cheer them on.
Sydney Blackmon states that she is going to miss the team bonding experiences during overnight tournaments. “ We have many fun and hilarious memories to look back on. Our drive to beat our rivals in the region is a huge team goal that focuses us to learn many new lessons, push ourselves to work harder, and come together as a team.”
With an impressive record of 16 wins and 4 losses, the volleyball program is striving to achieve one goal at a time.
