The Lady Warriors volleyball team took a first-round regional loss to First Colonial High School.

The Nansemond River High School girls’ volleyball team’s strong season came to an end after a loss to First Colonial in the quarterfinals of the Class 5A region tournament. The Lady Warriors had a strong regular season heading into the postseason making their first appearance since the 2016-2017 season. The Lady Warriors finish the regular season with a 15-7 record.

“I am very proud of how the team played this season,” Coach Cassidy Feldt said. “We are a very young team, so the future is bright for us and what we have coming back. I believe we are capable of having a great season next year. I am very excited and looking forward to coaching this team next year.”

Nansemond River has no seniors on this year’s team, which is the main reason Feldt is excited about the opportunity the Lady Warriors have next year. This season, Nansemond River ran the table in the city, sweeping all of its Suffolk foes. The Lady Warriors had three win streaks this year that were four games or more.

“I think us getting to the playoffs gave my girls more confidence in their abilities,” Feldt said. “They have grown so much this year, and I believe going to the playoffs will set us apart from other teams and will help us prepare for next season.”

A big goal the Lady Warriors had for themselves this season was to be more confident in themselves and level everything out on the court every time they stepped on it. They felt like they achieved that goal.

“I always tell the girls to try to make goals for themselves before the game and go out there and achieve them,” Feldt said. “I felt like they always went out there and did that, and I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
