About six weeks after winning the N.C. 3A state championship, South Iredell’s volleyball team will get a national honor from MaxPreps.
On Wednesday, the school will be presented with the Army National Guard national ranking trophy as part of the 11th annual MaxPreps tour of champions. MaxPreps ranks more than 13,000 girls high school volleyball teams nationwide. South Iredell is currently 55th national and one of only 10 schools being honored on the tour of champions.
The school will host a special sports assembly to receive the award at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday
South Iredell beat Asheboro 3-0 last month to win the school’s first state volleyball title. South finished 27-1. In the finals, South Iredell All-American Julia Scoles -- the N.C. Gatorade player of the year -- had 23 kills and no errors.
The Vikings won by scores of 25-14, 25-11 and 25-9.
The 6-1 Scoles, who will continue her volleyball career at the University of North Carolina, was a unanimous choice for the Most Valuable Player award at the state championship.
Madison Peters added 11 kills for the winners while Taylor Berg came up with 19 digs.
