CB South’s girls volleyball captain Millie Grove becomes first Titan to record 1,000 kills


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.”

She has been playing volleyball since fifth grade.
“Volleyball is pretty much my life,” she said. “I’m not sure about college yet, I’m talking to a few schools, but I definitely want to play.”
She is hoping to major in pre-dentistry.
This is her second year as a team captain.
“There’s definitely pressure to lead the team, but it doesn’t impact how I play,” she said. “Getting 1,000 kills was my main personal goal for the season, now that’s done and I want to focus on our team. I’m very optimistic for us. We had a rough start, we didn’t quite click, but now we’re doing well. I’m definitely excited for the rest of the season.”
CB South coach Kurt Godfrey appreciates having Grove on the squad.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to have her on the varsity for four years and we can attribute a lot of our wins to her, to the attitude she brings, the leaderships she brings, the overall competitiveness she brings, and of course the talent,” he said. “It’s an incredible accomplishment.”
