The Lady Panther volleyball team is enjoying another great season! On Monday, September 20, the Lady Panthers defeated Monroe to improve their Conference record to 7-1 and 14-1 on the season. The team is led by hitters Sarah Beane, Alison Florence, Taylor Simpson, and Kaley Welsh. The only Conference loss has come against West Stanly and the home rematch is scheduled for October 11.

Several Seniors comprise the 2010 volleyball team:  Brittany Leffler, Alison Florence, Maegan Helms, and Kalie Rape.  Coach Kim Cantey says "The team plays really well together and that is one of the keys to our success thus far." Despite only one loss, the Panthers find themselves in second place in the Conference after a tough loss to West Stanly.  The Lady Panthers will face several tough Conference opponents before their rematch with West Stanly on October 11 at 6:00 p.m. at Piedmont. When asked about the outlook for the remainder of the season, Coach Cantey said "As long we play aggressively and attack the ball, we have the potential to win the Conference and go further in the playoffs than we did last year."  

So Panther fans...mark your calendars and make plans to come out and support the Lady Panther volleyball team on October 11th!
