Richmond Hill Middle School’s volleyball program is on a roll that is starting to take on dynastic proportions.

The Wildcats went unbeaten during the regular season and postseason, then won their fourth straight middle school region championship Sept. 27 by beating rival Effingham County in two games.

Coach Courtney Lewis called the season “very successful.”

“The girls worked so hard everyday during practice and improved tremendously on their serving, passing, hitting, and team work,’ she said.

Richmond Hill downed Langston Chapel in the semifinals.

The team, which frequently rotates players, consists of Vanessa Smith, Mya Eroshevich, Ella Harper, Rory Schuler, Millie Poulos, Maecy Meguiar, Abby Asante, Kailyn Redding, Gisele Stauffer, Halle Schuler, Gwyneth Harper, Ryan Kate Cowan, Charley Clark, Carson Reeves, Laney Westbrook and Samantha Johnson.

Lewis and Chelsea Hurst are the coaches.
