North Augusta, S.C. – The Volleyball program at Fox Creek High School took a giant leap forward in 2017. The varsity program improved from 7-18 in 2016 to a 19-8 overall season in 2017 that included a 9-1 Region 3-AA record. In the State Playoffs the Lady Predators defeated Andrew Jackson before falling short to St. Joseph.

Coach Julie Luther will bid farewell to her four seniors from the 2017 team that included Melissa Luther, Amanda Rice, Sidney Hobbs and Stephanie Hobbs. However, she will have plenty of fire power coming up from the 12-4 junior varsity. Luther led the team with 190 kills and 163 digs. Rice also had 76 digs.

Next year’s seniors will be Grayson Kirkland, Stephanie Yano, Rose Childers and Kelsey Kenrick. Kirkland led this group in kills with 55. Childers followed with 46 followed by Yano and Kenrick with 29 and 7. Kirkland also led this group in digs with 83 followed by Childers and Yano with 25 and 18.

Next year’s junior will be Jenna Saul. This season she had 104 serve points, 3 kills and 53 digs and 160 assist.

Next year’s sophomores will be Ashlynn Mikell, Calista Smith and Camryn Ray. This year Mikell had 27 kills, 97 serve points and 24 digs. Ray had 101 kills, 119 serve points and 63 digs.

Next year Coach Luther will have the luxury of calling up quality players from the 12-4 junior varsity. From that team next year will be juniors Alyssa Wood, Emily Johnson and Sarah Massey. The sophomores will be Payton Wood, Lily Childers, Anna Beth Lepard, Lauren Coleman, Ashley Crumback, Abby Thomas, Adrienne Johnson and Madison Griffin.

Next season the Lady Predators will compete in Region 2-AA with Abbeville, Batesburg-Leesville, Ninety-Six, Saluda and Silver Bluff.
