Coastal Christian went 22-6 this season, beat all four Wilmington public schools for the first time in program history, claimed the Coastal Rivers Conference title and reached the semifinals of the NCISAA 3A playoffs. 

Those accomplishments were due in large part to the play of senior Anna Dudley Wetherill, who finished with an area best 352 kills and a .274 hitting percentage. Wetherill also had 247 digs, 88 aces and 26 blocks.

Wetherill finished with double digit kills in her final 15 matches, including a season-high 25 in a five-set victory over Ashley.
