Little River – A successful run in the Class AAAA Lower State playoffs by the volleyball team is highlighting the fall sports season at North Myrtle Beach High School.

The volleyball team won the region 6-AAAA title with a perfect 10-0 record. They advanced through the Lower State playoff bracket, reaching the Lower State finals on November 6th against rival Myrtle Beach. A win would place them in the Class AAAA state championship on November 10th at White Knoll High School. The Chiefs carried a 22-5 overall record into the Lower State finals.

This year’s team is led by a pair of AAAA all-state selections – seniors Sydney Bellamy and Kayla Henley. The only other senior on the roster is Olivia Gore. The team is coached by Alex Sing.

The football team begins their postseason run on November 9th at South Aiken. A 12-0 shutout of Marlboro County on November 2nd earned the Chiefs a third-place finish in region 6-AAAA with a 6-3 overall record.

The Chiefs are led in rushing by Zyon Belle (435 yards, 4 TD) and Ramsey Lewis (416 yards, 3 TD). Quarterback Cason McClendon is completing 55 percent of his pass attempts for 1,251 yards and 10 touchdowns.

The top receivers this fall are Naseem Harrison (29-359) and Derrien Holmes (23-347).

Defensively, Marcellous Livingston is the leading tackler with 39 total hits, including 12.5 tackles for loss. Jordyn Gillings has 37 tackles while Quintin Livingston has 34 tackles.
