“(The first match) sets the tone and builds confidence. You get the chance to feel good about what you’re doing and try to do it again. When you lose a match, you try to figure out what went wrong. So, we’re trying to figure out what went right and keep doing that,” UNC volleyball head coach Joe Sagula said.

Destiny Cox, a Tar Heel born and bred superstar for UNC Volleyball

Destiny Cox was slated to be the next great track star in her family, before she made a important announcement to her family. She wanted to play volleyball instead. As a four-your starter at Carrboro High School, Destiny led the team to a pair of Eastern Region runner-up finishes in 2014-15 and helped capture back-to-back state titles in 2016 and 2017, going on to earn NCHSAA 2A State Most Valuable Player honors two consecutive years. “My greatest accomplishment would be coming to UNC," Cox said. "Just because I could have honestly gone anywhere in the country I wanted to play volleyball, and so deciding to come here to an ACC school definitely surprised a lot of people, but I'm super proud of it.”
