It was a birthday that Nation Ford volleyball head coach Carrie Christian won’t forget anytime soon. And it happened just like she planned it.
Nation Ford won its second state championship in the program’s history and the first in 5A for the school as the Falcons swept the Wando Warriors 3-0 (25-11, 25-15, 25-16) Saturday night at White Knoll High.
The state title was Christian’s second with the program. She became the first head coach at Nation Ford to win multiple state titles. It was the fourth team state championship for Nation Ford as a school. With the Dorman Cavaliers being down this year, Christian was confident that this could be the Falcons’ year even before the first serve of the season.
