Local sports team could break national record

DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - A local high school sports team could soon break a national record. The Bishop England Battling Bishops volleyball team could hold the record for the most state titles in the sport, with a win this weekend at the state championship game.

"Anytime you go for a state championship it's always the big one. That in itself is exciting for them," head volleyball coach Cindy Baggott said.

With their most recent victory, they're now in position to win their 12th straight 2-A state title, and 22nd in school history. Number 22 would put the team in the national record books, the most state titles in high school volleyball.

Baggott says the 14 girls on the team have put in hard work, time, and dedication all season long.

"I don't think people realize what goes into it. They work really hard during the season. We practice every day. We play a couple times a week. We go to at least three major tournaments," Baggott said. "What's more important is what we do off-season. It's almost a nine-month commitment."

Junior Ellie James says she and the other players will go into the state championship game ready for the attack.

"Knowing that we're in the running for a national record just makes it so much better. We know our competition is going to be good. We're just going to say we're going to do our best and we're not going to let anything get to our heads," James said.

The ladies had their last practice Friday from 4-6 p.m. before Saturday's big state championship game.

They face Gilbert at 1:30 p.m. at White Knoll High School in Lexington.

 The BE volleyball teams has an overall record of 23 to 7 for the season. Some of the players have gotten some interest from local schools to play volleyball at the college level.
