A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO APPLAUD THE CHESNEE HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL TEAM ON NETTING THE 2020 CLASS AA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE AND TO CONGRATULATE THESE ATHLETES AND THEIR COACH ON A FABULOUS UNDEFEATED SEASON.

Whereas, on Thursday, November 5, 2020, the Lady Eagles of Chesnee High School triumphed over Andrew Jackson to win the 2020 Class AA State Volleyball Championship, held at Dutch Fork High School in Irmo; and

Whereas, the Lady Eagles dominated Andrew Jackson 25-7, 25-12, 25-17, completing the playoffs without dropping a set; and

Whereas, determined to take home the hardware, these Chesnee athletes accordingly played like a well-oiled machine in capturing Chesnee's first volleyball state title in school history; and

Whereas, Chesnee's top contributors were huge in the title match. A.C. Yelton had 11 kills, 11 digs, and three aces. Kaitlyn Barrett added 16 kills and nine digs, Shenandoah Bishop notched 13 digs, Ali Scruggs served four aces, and Holly Hines dished out 33 assists and five aces and produced a pair of double-digit runs of service points; and

Whereas, it was Jessa Beach, however, who helped give Chesnee momentum early in the match. Her six kills and five blocks came mostly in Game 1, where the 6-foot middle hitter controlled the net for Chesnee, making Andrew Jackson hit around her and allowing Hines ample opportunities to set Yelton and Barrett for free swings; and

Whereas, Coach Katie Jolley, rightly proud of her team, tested her players this season and took them to the title match ready to play. The discipline she had instilled into her team paid off on the court with impressive ball control, blocking, and hitting; and

Whereas, appreciative of the well-deserved recognition these athletes have brought to their school and community, the House of Representatives congratulates the Lady Eagles, and the members look with interest toward hearing of their further successes both on and off the volleyball court. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, applaud the Chesnee High School volleyball team on netting the 2020 Class AA State Championship title and congratulate these athletes and their coach on a fabulous undefeated season.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Angie Ramsey and Coach Katie Jolley of Chesnee High School.
