While the 2014 volleyball season came to an end for the Choctaw County High School Lady Chargers last week, the future remains bright according to head coach Gary Beals.

“I think the volleyball program is in great shape for the future,” Beals said. “I think birthdays will help us a lot. We will just get better as we get older. At one point there were five freshman out on the floor at one time.”

The Lady Chargers, who didn’t have any seniors this season, finished the year at 15-9 and advanced to the second round of the MHSAA Class 1 State Volleyball Playoffs before falling to a strong Corinth team 25-10, 25-10, 25-13 last Tuesday.

“They really jumped out on us in each game,” Beals said. “I think it was 5-0 in every game and we were just scratching to come back.”

Beals said his Lady Chargers learned a lot from this season they can take into next year.

“The big thing is they saw you can’t win volleyball matches by just playing defense,” he said. “They have learned to make passes and hit their spots, as well as set it and spike it. That’s the big thing.”

CCHS FFA Members visits FFA Children’s Barnyard The Choctaw County High School FFA members had the opportunity to work at the FFA Children’s Barnyard during the State Fair for the first time this year on Friday, October 3. Students worked their shift from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Student responsibilities were to feed and water the animals, clean their stalls, and interact with families that visited. These FFA members had a wonderful time and fulfilled their responsibilities with great pride! They represented Choctaw County very well.
