MANDARIN - Middleburg High volleyball coach Carrie Prewitt officially coached her final Bronco volleyball contest with a district semifinal finish in beach volleyball on Wed., April 26.

The Lady Broncos finished with a 9-5 overall record and delivered a 5-0 win over Clay in their district opener before losing 3-2 to Creekside for a second time this season. Creekside eventually lost in the district final to Ponte Vedra 5-0.

The Broncos roster was led by junior Connor Rahn and sophomore Brooke Forkum, two power players from the fall volleyball squad for Prewitt.

Prewitt announced that she would retire from volleyball in the fall and gave the reigns to former Bronco standout Meredith Forkum. Forkum will take over the program next fall.

Also playing the district tournament were senior Summer Repogle and senior Kaitlynn Nolan as the number two team. For the 3, 4 and 5 teams, Prewitt had a handful of young and upcoming players including freshmen Katelynn Lowery, Camden Rahn and Kathryn White with sophomore Rylee Custer and juniors Emma Brugh and Kendyl Wahl.

Middleburg had losses to Bishop Kenny, Fletcher, Lincoln and Creekside twice with wins over Clay twice, Bishop Snyder twice, Atlantic Coast, Beachside and Episcopal.

In the state playoff bracket, Bishop Kenny and Creekside will play on May 2 with Leon and Chiles on the other half of the bracket.

Gulf Breeze will host Fletcher and Ponte Vedra will host Lincoln to complete the region lineup.

Unbeaten New Smyrna Beach (22-0) is top ranked in Class 1A with Bishop Kenny (16-3) eighth and Ponte Vedra (9-2) ranked 15th. Middleburg finished ranked 64th. Clay, in its first season, finished 2-7 with two wins over Stanton Prep.
