Someday in the rather near future, Millie Grove will look up at the rafters of the Central Bucks South gymnasium and see her name on a banner.
“That’s going to be so exciting,” said Grove, a senior captain on the CB South girls volleyball team. “I can’t wait.”
Grove is the first volleyball player, male or female, to get 1,000 kills in a career for the Titans. She achieved the milestone on Sept. 21 at Abington.
“It was amazing,” said Grove, who entered the match with the Galloping Ghosts needing 17 kills to reach the mark. “I knew how many I had coming into it, so the point before I got it, I knew that I was going to get it and it really was so exciting for me.
“They stopped the game and everyone, all my teammates, ran onto the court. It was really fun. I’ll never forget it.”
What makes the stat even more amazing is the fact that the 2020 season was abbreviated due to COVID.
“Last year I was really nervous because of the pandemic,” said Grove, an outside hitter. “I was so happy that we at least had a season so I was able to keep it going and get close to my goal.”
