With a victory Saturday against Northeastern on the volleyball court, Newton-Conover won its eighth state championship.
The volleyball crown, the schoolâ€™s first in history, continued an amazing run of state titles at N-C since the year 2000.
During that span, the Red Devils are the stateâ€™s best in five different sports.
â€śI just think the excitement surrounding a state championship and kids wanting to be a part of it is infectious,â€ť said N-C athletic director Ericia Turner. â€śThe community just surrounds the kids. Itâ€™s a pride thing for them.â€ť
