Click here to see the Lady Foxes vs Irmo!
Dutch Fork High School's rigor doesn't just end in the classroom. As the Lady Foxes of Volleyball can attest, one of their strongest assets lies with Coach Cindy Robarge-Esposito. Cindy grew up in Columbia and was a 3 time All State volleyball player volleyball player at Spring Valley High School and was one of the first Columbia kids who played for Carolina Juniors Club started by USC Coaches at the time. Coach Robarge-Esposito was the first Columbia volleyball player to receive a scholarship to play Volleyball at USC, and was a hometown favorite. Coach Robarge-Esposito a stand out at USC playing all four years, 1995-1998, under Coach Kim Hudson-Williams, Coach Robarge-Esposito excelled as a right side and middle hitter and has many awards to her name, some of those are: All-SEC and All-SEC Tournament.
Another huge asset to the Dutch Fork's volleyball team is it's strong leadership where the seniors are concerned. Coach Robarge-Esposito shared that her "seniors have really stepped up and lead this team. It will be hard to replace these girls...this is a very special team with a unique bond..." The Lady foxes are a strong team and should continue to do well as they work to win one match at a time.
Finally, the Lady Foxes third asset is the strength of the classes to come. While we have a group of strong seniors, we also have several juniors and several sophomores who are playing well and contributing heavily to the teams overall play. Coach Robarge-Esposito shared that "after turning around the Coker College Volleyball team and coaching in Naples, Florida, it's good to be back home and give back to her home town." She feels blessed to coach at Dutch Fork High School and looks forward to helping get our girls recruited and building a winning program!
