Knights Volleyball Set to take on Leon in State Regional Semis


Tallahassee Leon (8-0) at Creekside (17-2). A clash of giants. The Lions, reigning state champions, were pushed to the brink by Fleming Island and had to survive a match point. Leon ended the Knights’ postseason plans in 2015, 2016 and 2019, each time winning in three. But Creekside is playing with more confidence than ever, and fields a pair of all-around stars in Jessie Lary and Jaden McBride in one of Northeast Florida’s best overall combinations. The winner plays Saturday against Niceville or Crestview.

High school volleyball 2017: Five teams, players to watch out for

High school volleyball season begins Monday. A look at five teams and five players to watch as the season opens.

Creekside: The Knights are a perennial state contender and, even with a handful of big graduation losses, will be so again under coach Megan Bowers. A somewhat senior-heavy lineup is led by powerful middles, with 6-foot-1 Milla Ciprian, a Virginia commit, arguably the best in the area. She had 221 kills, 163 digs and 64 blocks last season. Caroline Webb is also back in the middle, Brooklyn McBride flanks the outside and libero Margaret Gupton also returns.
