CAHS Ladies Take Volleyball Crown

On a rainy Wednesday afternoon, the Charlotte Amalie High School gym was the place to be — indoors, in the air conditioning, watching three great volleyball games.
There was only one varsity game of the day, putting the CAHS Lady Chickenhawks against the Lady Hurricanes from Antilles School. There was a lot on the line for both sides: Antilles needed the win to keep its championship chances alive, but for the Chickenhawks, it was win and go home with the crown.
The first set was a back and forth between the two teams, but CAHS pulled away for the 19-25 win. In the second set, the Chickenhawks once again found themselves going back and forth with the Canes and late in the match, the Canes actually took the lead, but the Chickenhawks just wouldn’t go away, forcing some extra play and pulling off the 26-24 win.
CAHS jumped all over the Canes early on in the third set, pulling out 8-3 and then moving up 10-5. But the Canes rallied, and before anyone knew it, the score was tied at 19. Still, CAHS surged from there to the 25-21 victory, pulling off the sweep.
"We feel awesome," CAHS varsity girls volleyball coach Myriam Rodney said after the game. "We won hard all season long — during preseason, during the season, every tournament during the weekend. I’ve very proud of the girls. They worked hard and they deserve it."
During the other games of the day, Antilles junior varsity girls team faced the Sts. Peter and Paul Lady Jaguars and beat them 25-10, 25-20. CAHS junior varsity girls then took care of the Lady Rays from Ivanna Eudora Kean 25-21, 25-18.
