NEWPORT—After experiencing much success on the court at Cocke County High School, former Lady Red standout Erin Biddle found more of that last Thursday at CCHS.
Only this time, she was in the coaching box. For another team.
After years of donning the red and black, Biddle, a former All-Conference standout for Cocke County, is now in her second season as the head volleyball coach for Seymour High School. Despite only having the reigns of the program for only two seasons, she has already found much success leading the program.
After qualifying for the Region 1-AAA tournament last year, by virtue of a second place finish to Morristown West in the district finals, the Lady Eagles again have high hopes of returning to the region semifinals, after splitting last season’s district title with the Lady Trojans and holding a 24-16 record in the regular season.
“We have high hopes this year of getting back (to the region tournament),” Biddle said on Thursday night after her squad downed her alma mater in three sets. “I think we are where we need to be to have a winning season.
“I’ve got high hopes, and I’m very excited about this season,” Biddle said. “I think we should have a great season.”
