Going into last weekend's matches, Hopewell's volleyball team was still undefeated. The Titans 17-0 (9-0 in the I-Meck) have dominated their opponents, only losing two sets (as of Thursday's win over West Charlotte) against conference teams.
Lake Norman and Mallard Creek are the only I-Meck opponents who have won sets against coach Rhonda Auman's team.
Hopewell's biggest challenge so far has been volleyball powerhouse Mount Tabor, who they defeated 3-2, on Sept. 18 in Greensboro.
Hopewell has been led by Hannah Early, who had 164 kills going into last weekend, as well as sophomore Rachel Eppley, who has recorded 248 digs, and senior captain Adrian Eppley, who leads the Titans with 376 assists.
