BROOKSVILLE- The last time Central’s varsity volleyball team won a game was back on October 1st of 2015.

It was quite a bit of time from when Central won a match and Bears coach Nikki LaRiviere has endured a tough campaign, but picking up a 3-1 win versus Hernando Christian Academy a week and half ago has made the program optimistic about a potential turnaround sooner rather than later.
