Bill Carter

From Central Carolina Community College

SANFORD — Central Carolina Volleyball Coach Bill Carter said the 2021 Cougar volleyball team may be the most skilled in his 13 years as coach.

“I have big expectations for our team,” said Carter. “Ball control and aggressive serving will be the Cougar strengths moving into the season.”

Coach Carter points to his three returning athletes — Jaloni Gadist (Pine Forest), Grace McAllister (Shining Light Christian), and Taylor Rosser (Western Harnett) — to provide experience and leadership.

Other members of this year’s Central Carolina volleyball squad are Lily Bonner (Southern Lee), Mekenzie Harris (Grace Christian), Breighanna Hobbs (Triton), Kaiyan Padilla (Northglenn — Denver, Co.) and Pristina Tabon (Southern Lee).

“Overall team chemistry and a strong will should give the Cougars the opportunity to be successful this season,” said Carter. “I am very excited about the setting for the 2021 spring season, which will give out hitters a great opportunity to be successful.”
