After 2 years as Junior Varsity coach, Frankie became Varsity Head coach for the 2018 season. The 2018 team started with 8 players.Within a few weeks the team was down to six. The small team had a great season in Mountain Christian League. Five teams were very close and most matches among those teams went to 4 or 5 sets. Going into the end of season Varsity tournament any of the 5 teams could have taken first. NICS came in 4th after losing a deciding match in 5 sets with the 5th set score 13-15. Because of the small 2018 turnout of players NICS did not field a Junior Varsity team. Both Frankie and Melanie, are recruiting hard and hope to have enough players to field both Varsity and Junior Varsity for the 2019 season.
Liz Knight begins her 4th year as Junior High Coach. The 2018 team was a very young team. With just one 8th grader, the team worked hard and made great progress. The exciting thing about the season was the bond that developed among the players and the coach. Both the girls and Liz are very excited about the new season. They will have extensive spring and summer practices and look forward to a great 2019 season.
