Middlesex High graduate Meredith Holt and recent MHS volleyball standout Jill Hester are coaching the JV Lady Chargers this season.
The JV Lady Chargers won both their scrimmage against York and their season opener against Essex, and Holt said she couldn’t be more proud of her girls.
On Monday at MHS, the JV Lady Chargers swept Essex 25-14 and 25-20. Jessica Dixon tallied 15 points in the two games to lead MHS.
Ivy Perkins, Ashley Williams and Ashley Lane are the captains of the Middlesex team. Other returning players to the team include Olivia Wilder, Dixon, Bridgette Self and Allyson Sharpe.
New members include Kelly Wilson, Emily Britton, Mary Stevens, Allison Payne and Brooke Rowe.
Holt, Hester and the JV Lady Chargers encourage everyone to come watch their home game tonight, August 28, when they host Washington and Lee. On Wednesday, September 3, they travel to Lancaster. JV matches start at 6 p.m. and are followed by varsity matches at 7:30 p.m.
