TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - Abbie Post is Community Christian volleyball. Seven years of experience is what she uses to steer a team that boasts six underclassmen.

"Even though we're a young team, coming in the next couple of years, we're going to be a really good team," she said of the future of the Chargers.

They're doing good this year - undefeated in District play, and a big reason why? Abbie.

"Abbie is an all-around super star, simply stated," said head coach Nina Gunn-Hall. "You can't get another Abbie. We've had some ups and downs, but she's been a great leader and she's moving this team forward."

She's a great leader who's leading the stat sheet- boasting over 150 kills on the season. And of taking charge? It's just something she was born to do.

"It's a lot of responsibility, however, I think she's taken it, embraced it, and ran with it," said Gunn-Hall. "If I was going to have a senior, Abbie would be the one to take us forward for the season."

"Having them look to me can add a lot of pressure sometimes, but I think it makes me a better player in the process," added Abbie. "I like the challenge of her leaning on me like that."

The challenge to succeed on the court, a big reason for her success in the classroom, as Abbie's competitive nature has earned her a 4.45 GPA.

"I think it's an expectation I've made for myself is to have myself up here," she said. "With volleyball, it's not very easy. Setting specific time away just completely dedicated to school."

Abbie is dedicated to school, and dedicated to leaving her mark. Back to back Playoff appearances isn't enough, as she wants more.

"I want to leave a big legacy, a big goal at the end of it," she said, hinting at a run at a State title.

A leader leaving her mark, not a bad way to end a career.
