The Lady Cougars recognize their four senior players Jenni Young, Ansley Knight, Meg Oldham and Anna Brumby.
All four young ladies have played together since freshmen year and are all 4-year letterman in volleyball. Not to mention, all four seniors have been close friends since their freshmen year and have lead this years’ team together phenomenally.
After being Varsity Volleyball Lady Cougar teammates for three years, it was time for these four young ladies to step into the spot light as seniors for the fourth and final year as Lady Cougars.
Senior Meg Oldham said, “It didn’t hit me until right before they called my name that we were the ones walking through the tunnel this time, not the ones making it. I felt the love and support of my teammate, especially the three amazing girls that I’ve played four years with. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t trade this senior season for anything.”
None of the girls have quite grasped the fact that it is their senior year.
Senior player Ansley Knight commented, “This has been the best season of volleyball I’ve had, ever. I am so glad that we have it as our senior year. I am still in shock that we are graduating in May.”
These four seniors have supported and encouraged one another for four years, along with their teammates and coaches.
Coach Rachel Kuehl added, “I’m so proud of these girls and their ability to adapt as a team. They are leaders on and off the court.”
This year has presented its own obstacles for the Lady Cougars. However, the team was dedicated and stayed positive.
All four seniors decided at the beginning of the season that this year would be about working hard and having fun.
Senior Jenni Young explained, “I wouldn’t have wanted to spend my senior year with anyone else. This season has been the most fun I’ve had playing for Newnan.”
Coach Krista Wilson, Head Coach of the Varsity Volleyball Team, said, “I couldn’t have asked for better seniors to spend my first year coaching with. They definitely made my first year an unforgettable one.”
All four young ladies have enjoyed their senior season so far and hope to continue on throughout play-offs.
As their regular season is coming to an end and they start their area tournament, the Lady Cougars stepped out onto their home court for one of the last times. On their senior night, the Varsity Volleyball Lady Cougars defeated the Carrollton Trojans and the LaGrange Grangers in two sets each.
Congratulations to the four seniors of the Varsity Volleyball Team! The Cougar Nation wishes you the best on your journeys after high school.
