BOE Recognizes Paintsville Volleyball Team
The Paintsville Board of Education took time to recognize the Paintsville volleyball team at their latest regular meeting. “We’ve had a remarkable season,” said Superintendent David Gibson.
Gibson along with Kay Hall said the team won 38 games this season which is a school and region record.
“They won the All “A” State Championship and it was something to behold, we had our backs against the wall and the grit that came through brought us back to win the state championship,” said Gibson.
The Lady Tigers led by Coach Dawn Kinner who took over the program in 2010, went undefeated in the 15th region this year while also winning their 11th district championship and becoming All “A” champions.
“We are only the second public school in the state to get that accomplishment of becoming All “A” champions,” said Hall.
According to Hall, no public school has ever won the All “A” tournament.
Hall said along with the standout season this year, the team also received other accolades including player of the year and coach of the year in the 15th region.
“What you accomplish this year you will remember for the rest of your life,” Gibson said. “It’s something that is very remarkable, so be proud of what you’ve accomplished. Coach Kinner has done a phenomenal job building this program up.”
