SHAMIYA SOARS. Northern Nash's Shamiya Mercer comes up with a kill during last week's road spike contest against the Bunn Ladycats at the Bunn Dome.
BUNN -- During her 20-plus seasons as Northern Nash High School's volleyball coach, Patricia Haggerty has never backed down from a challenge.
This year is no different as Haggerty is putting her young roster through some grueling early non-conference work, including an opening matchup with perennial state powerhouse D.H. Conley.
Northern Nash has also played area titan Bunn on two occasions, including a three-set loss last Wednesday afternoon at the Bunn Dome in Franklin County.
