Five Northside and Southside volleyball players made the All Coastal Plains Conference volleyball team.

Seniors Hannah Baker, Hannah Black, Jean Grace DeHoog and Paige Smith represented the Panthers, while senior Logan Dale was selected from Southside.

Northside (19-6, 9-1) tied with Pamlico County for the regular-season conference title before losing to the Hurricanes in the league tournament final.

The Hurricanes’ Layla Prescott was named Player of the Year and April Rose was named Coach of the Year.

Captains Baker and Black, along with DeHoog and Smith, helped the Panthers reach the second round of the 1A state playoffs, where they lost to East champion Perquimans.

“Everyone is very deserving because they’ve proven it on and off the court,” coach Michelle Leathers said. Jean Grace blocked with force. Hannah Baker was all-rounder for us because she defended at the back, closed gaps and found holes in our opponents’ defenses for us to score.

Hannah Black was a strong hitter, she also played all over the place and Paige Smith knew she had to put the ball where our opponents didn’t think we could. She also forced their back row to adjust to her delivery. As the season progressed, they all improved, became more vocal, adjusting to the flow of the game and helping our team prepare for the playoffs.”

Dale was a captain and setter for the Seahawks.

Logan was an indispensable member of our team who was committed to giving 100% whether it was in a game or at practice,” said coach Haley Hamilton. “She helped lead the team on and off the field and set the standard for what a captain should look like. I will always be grateful for her willingness to work with the younger girls and help myself and Coach Patty take over this program to improve it for generations to come. Logan truly embodies the phrase “student-athlete” with her high achievements in the classroom as well, and I can’t wait to see her succeed in her final softball season.”

Three players from East Carteret, two from Lejeune and one from Jones, joined the locals on the All-Conference team.
