Hoggard volleyball team falls in state finals


RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) -- Charlotte Providence won its fifth North Carolina High School Athletic Association volleyball championship in convincing fashion on Saturday as the Panthers rolled to a straight-set victory over Wilmington Hoggard in the 4-A final at Reynolds Coliseum.

Megan Edwards earned Most Valuable Player honors as she led Providence to a 25-20, 25-18, 25-12 triumph over Wilmington Hoggard. The 6-0 senior middle hitter had 12 kills, 12 digs and four aces as Providence finished the season with a 28-2 overall record.

The Panthers were in the state finals for the seventh time and were the state runners-up in 2010.

Hoggard was making its fifth appearance in the volleyball state championship but is still looking for its initial state title in the sport. Jamie Jarrell led the Vikings, 22-4, with six kills.

Tune into the Coach's Corner Sunday at 6:00 on WWAY for highlights from Saturday's 4-A state championship match.

great to be a CAT

New Hanover and Laney girls compete in cross country states (while Hoggard stays home)...New Hanover boys kick Hoggard's butt in football for 2nd time in 8 days...Hoggard girls get spanked for 5th straight time in volleyball state's a great day to be a New Hanover Wildcat! Arrogance will get you nowhere:)

is that what winning is called

arrogance is derived from habitually winning again and again,,,,so the Hoggard folks are within their rights to be a little happy

Stop whining and get a life!!
