Chapel Hill Coach Sets New Volleyball Standard

CHAPEL HILL— The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has received documentation that there is a new leader in the state of North Carolina in career volleyball victories.

Sherry Norris, who has coached at Chapel Hill High School for 35 years, now has 703 victories after a win last Thursday night over Northern Vance. She currently sports an overall record of 703-246.

Her career mark eclipses that of Jan Stanley, the long-time coach at West Henderson who had been the state’s all-teader 698 wins against just 115 losses during her career of 35 years.

The NCHSAA publishes lists of winning coaches in various sports, based on what schools have submitted in the Association school data base, but this information had not been submitted before.

Norris has also coached women’s basketball 35 years and has compiled a mark of 471-373 in that sport, giving her close to 1200 varsity victories in those two sports combined. The Chapel Hill women’s basketball team was 27-3 a year ago.

Congratulations to Sherry Norris of Chapel Hill!
