DANBURY— The North Stokes High School volleyball team was honored recently between varsity basketball games at North, as members of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state championship team received rings at a special ceremony.

Principal Nathan Rasey addressed the crowd, according to reports in The Stokes News, and athletic director Jason Lippard presented the rings to the players.

Head volleyball coach Chrsty Menear pointed out that North Stokes qualified the NCHSAA AAA Scholar-Athlete team award as well, and seven of her players are ranked in the top 15 of their respective classes.

A large team photograph of the state champions, which has been placed in the gymnasium, was also unveiled.
