Our Strom Thurmond Lady Rebels are coming down the stretch in Region V AAA and remain undefeated. On the following Thursday the girls defeated Gilbert in a game for first place in Region V AAA. The Rebels won the first two sets and seemed to have the match in hand when the Indians came storming back to tie the match at two sets a piece. In the 5th and final set the Rebels maintained composure and won the set 15-12. The win over Gilbert gives the Lady Rebels the first Volleyball Region Championship in school history. Congratulations to Coach Nick Lorimer, his assistant coaches, and all our Lady Rebels!

According to Avi Mahoney, known to her teammates as the motivator, "The win is bittersweet for me. I cried when we won. I was overwhelmed because it is the first time in Strom Thurmond history that the team made it to region. The sad part is I got hurt in that game but hope I'll back for the playoffs!" Coach Lorimer added, " We still have two Region matches. Playoffs won't be until the end of October. As long as we win playoff matches we will have home court advantage."

The Lady Rebels were back home on Monday Oct 2nd vs. Lakeside lost, but it is not a regional game. Come out and support the Lady Rebels Junior Varsity team against Pelion Oct. 4, Fox Creek Oct. 5, Brooklyn-Cayce Oct. 6 and Fox Creek again on Monday, Oct. 9th!
