By Matthew Yoder All great runs eventually come to a conclusion. Chincoteague’s historic 2019 season ended with a semifinal loss to Rappahannock in region 1A competition. The three sets to one defeat was not for lack of effort. The Red Raiders just proved to be too formidable for the Ponies. Chincoteague’s...
By Brennan Waldorf The Division I Region A volleyball championship kicked off Monday night on Chincoteague Island. The Ponies entered the tournament as the number two seed and faced off against seven seed Essex High School. The Trojans entered the tournament with an 8-9 record but were better than their record showed as they...
By Brennan Waldorf Division II Region A volleyball playoffs started Nov. 5 with Nandua facing off against the Prince Edward Eagles in Onley. The Warriors fell in three straight sets (25-17, 25-19, 25-18) to conclude their 2019-20 season.

By Matthew Yoder Often, slow starts have pinned Arcadia’s hopes for victory. Against Broadwater Tuesday Arcadia had trouble converting leads and found themselves on the losing end in straight sets. As strong and confident as the Firebirds were early, on the opposite side of the net the Vikings appeared lethargic. The Firebirds built an early...
By Matthew Yoder Arcadia stretched its winning streak to three games with a 46-0 defeat on the road in Williamsburg last Friday against Bruton. The defense has surrendered only 19 points over that span, and the victory against the Panthers was the Firebirds’ second shutout of the season. The defense...
