CHARLOTTE – New head coach Jeremy Baker has taken over the Creek Wood volleyball program, and his first season is lining up to be a productive one even though his team is relatively inexperienced.
Baker said he is fortunate to inherit two seniors from the previous regime in Whitley Daniel and Makayla Choate. Daniel, Tahlor Jackson, and Josie Parchman were all members of the All-County team last year.
“We are a young team, but we are blessed to have two great senior leaders in Whitley Daniel and Makayla Choate,” Baker said. “We should be very competitive in our district and hope to make it into the regionals. We’re looking forward to a great season.”
Parchman, a sophomore, will miss the beginning of the season with an injury, but that will open an opportunity for a younger player to show their ability. This Lady Red Hawk volleyball team showcases five sophomores and seven freshmen, so youth will play a big part in the team’s success.
With highly-productive players like Hannah Lovell and Lexi Buckner lost to graduation, the new seniors will be keys on and off the court. Creek Wood’s district and region hopes likely rest on their shoulders.
