Nikki LaRiviere picks up first win as Central volleyball coach

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

Fast forward to this season and the Bears are finally back in the win column. 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. 

NEOS 360 Interactive Playground

Players earn points with each successful tag. It’s called Neos 360.

Catch any of that?  I remember having to suffer through Roman Numerals in elementary school, a whole chapter in my math textbook, but not in high school.  And little by little over the years (it was actually probably pretty quick) I forgot all but the basics; long numbers are now a mystery to me.

Allowing God to change our perspective

Decisions are a part of life that we face every day. With everything from what we will wear to purchasing a new washing machine, our choices contribute as key components of our success and failures which are also directly connected to our peace and joy. Sometimes we are strongly influenced with the mesmerizing sparkle and emotional excitement that pulls us into a hypnosis and this crossroad can be a dangerous place to make a long-term commitment.
