Chambers Rebels VB sprint toward postseason

LaFAYETTE — Here come the Rebels.

In head coach Jaylan Reynolds’ first season at the helm, Chambers Academy’s volleyball team is in the thick of hosting a playoff game. The varsity team’s region record went to 5-1 after a victory over Evangel Christian Academy on Monday night.

The varsity Rebels won in four sets over the Lions, 25-16, 25-15, 15-25, 25-16. Claire Allen led Chambers with 10 assists and four aces. Chloe Mitcham had four aces and one assist. Bailey Allen had seven kills and two assists. Megan Ware had three kills, five assists and two aces. Britten Stephens had five kills and an ace in the victory.

Chambers Academy has two home regional games remaining this season against East Memorial Christian Academy on Oct. 16 and Cornerstone on Oct. 18. Splitting those two matchups should put the Rebels in position to have a No. 2 seed heading into the playoffs.

The junior varsity squad is undefeated in region play this season and has only lost one game all season in the opener against Edgewood. The JV Rebels are expected to be contenders in next week’s JV state championship.

The JV Rebels won on Monday afternoon against Evangel Christian Academy in two sets, 25-17 and 25-9. Allen led the team while playing double duty, with three kills, one assist and one ace. Natalie Lovelace had eight aces and one assist. Lexi Smith contributed three kills in the victory.

The Greater Valley Area Chamber of Commerce’s Junior Ambassador Committee helped spread some holiday cheer earlier this week when it passed out Valentine’s Day cards at area nursing homes. The junior ambassador committee is made up of ninth graders through twelfth graders from area high schools. Carrie Royster, marketing and events manager for the chamber, said about 45 students participate in the junior ambassadors. Local elementary school students made the Valentine’s Day cards and the junior ambassador committee took them to the assisted living and nursing homes in the area. Valentine’s Day cards were taken to LaFayette Nursing Home, LaFayette Extended Care, G.H. Lanier Nursing Home, Diversicare, Sylvia Word Manor, Lakewood Senior Living and Valley Park Manor. “I think the importance is having our youth go into the nursing homes,” Royster said. “A lot of times our youth doesn’t get that experience, and the nursing home residents absolutely love having the kids come in and getting to communicate with them.”
