The Banks County High School volleyball team wrapped up its season with a banquet on November 10.
"We recognized every one of our JV and varsity players for their hard work," said Coach LaHayne. "Every one of our players worked extremely hard this season. We had a great season, especially with players like Hoard, McClure, Payne, Vickery, and Pruitt. We can say so much of each one of the girls. Hoard is an all-around hard-working player who has a positive attitude and sets the atmosphere for the team. Addison is consistent in her play, and I can always count on her; no matter the job, I know she will complete the task and give 100 percent. She received the Varsity Coaches Award. Syd has really grown this season and worked hard to get better. She has constantly asked me questions wanting to know what to do and how she can improve. She received the Varsity Most improved Award."
Players on the JV team were also recognized. Emmie Chitwood received the Coaches Award. "She is an all-around hard-working, positive player who strives to improve daily," the coach said.
