The 2016 season for the Lady Deacons has officially begun. With a pre-season that has consisted of conditioning, a team retreat, and two weeks of doubles, I know that my team has never been so prepared for the fight for a victorious season. Our motto this season is Philippians 3:14 which calls us to "press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." We have united this year with the common goal of bringing glory to God through our dedication, love, and joy both on and off the court. As a senior its hard to accept that this is my last season but I couldn't be any more excited to help lead this team along the side of my other two senior teammates and NHCC as a whole through an amazing volleyball season.
