TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - When it comes to high school volleyball in Leon County, or really the state, there's no tougher District than Class 7A District 2. Leon leads the District standings at 2-1, but on Tuesday, either Chiles or Lincoln will join them at the top, as the Timberwolves and the Trojans face off, and the showdown on the court won't be the only one going on.

""We're obviously better!" exclaimed Chiles senior Tucker Criswell when asked who's pep club is the peppiest.

"We're the loudest. We have the most spirit. We have the most chants," said Lincoln senior Bo Seccombe.

"We're always better, we know we're always going to be better," pitched in Tate Hagan, a senior at Chiles.

Both pep clubs duke it out in the stands, cheering on their girls no matter if they're home or away.

"It feels good to be able to be that driving force that gets them to be pumped about playing for us," said Lincoln junior Kathryn Brockett.

"The parents, the fans, everyone, they all love the student section," said Seccombe. "They love what we do and the energy we bring to the table."

The energy heard, and seen, loud and clear, and the main goal? To be as peppy as possible.

"We've been doing it since we were freshmen," said Hagan of the various cheers the Wolfpack does. "Now that we're seniors, we've made more up, we do the same ones, so it's really fun to do those."

Really fun, and really, it's all just for fun.

"It's nothing personal. I love a lot of the guys and girls at Chiles," said Brockett. "We're all friends, but it's just kind of fun to have a little competition. It makes the game more exciting to go back and forth not only between the teams on the court, but off the court as well."

"We are the best," said Criswell. "We are the Wolfpack. We're the best."

Or... maybe not. Tuesday's rivalry match-up starts at 7:00 at Chiles High School.
