Mt. Pleasant, S.C. -The Volleyball program at Palmetto Christian Academy in Mt. Pleasant appears to be prepared for success the next few years if Coach Alyssa Woodhall can keep this young team playing together.

The 2017 roster was dominated by three sophomores, four freshmen, two 8th graders and 1 seventh grader. The 2017 team only had three seniors and one junior. Despite having such a young team, the Lady Eagles compiled a 22-7-2 record. Two of those defeats came in the post season tournament falling to Spartanburg Christian 2-0 and to Hilton Head Christian 2-1.

At the state tournament the Lady Eagles had wins over Colleton Prep and Pee Dee Academy before losing to Spartanburg Christian and Hilton Head Christian. The Lady Eagles finished second in their region with a 10-2 region record.

“We are a young team and I am very proud of how they finished the season,” said Coach Woodhall. “We got a lot farther in the state tournament than most people though we would. We competed in one of the toughest SCISA regions in 2A. Five teams from our region made the tournament. The girls played hard and did well with the hand they were dealt. Our successes were not measured by our wins or loses but by the development of these young players. As a unit, they matured in the game and overcame many hardships. I am thankful to have such dedicated athletes in the program and can see big things happening for Palmetto Christian volleyball.”

The three seniors on the 2017 team were Nerel Martin, Emma Patrick and Peyton Emersn. The one junior was Lauren Pernell. The tenth graders were Maddison Davidson, A.G. Hortin and Bailey Kiaser. The freshmen were Olivia Horne, Olivia Martin, Paige Emerson and Katelyn Howard. The two eighth graders were Rachel Andrews and Charlee Olson and the seventh grader was Gibbs Fishburne.
