A historic run continued over the weekend for the Carrboro High School volleyball team, as the Jaguars defeated West Iredell on Saturday by a score of 3-1 (25-15, 17-25, 25-20, 25-18) to win their second straight 2A state championship.
Playing at NC State’s famed Reynolds Coliseum, a future Tar Heel–Carrboro’s Destiny Cox, who is committed to play at UNC next year–was named the game’s MVP.
Cox posted a team-high 22 kills to go along with 14 digs and three aces, leading the Jaguars (31-0) to their staggering 61st consecutive win–a streak spanning essentially two full seasons.
West Iredell (27-4) was dominant in the second set, but couldn’t quite muster the firepower needed to steal a victory against a team as talented as Carrboro.
