Game Changer: Sue Moon, North Henderson Volleyball

Updated: Friday, October 11 2013, 10:27 AM EDT
Sometimes you meet people in life and you leave smiling after you meet them.  Sue Moon is one of those people.  She teaches Social Studies and coaches volleyball at North Henderson and she is a real life Game Changer. 

Luke Notestine caught up with her to find out why her players have learned so much from her about volleyball and about life. 

Miranda Mathews says, "I love playing for Coach Moon.  She pushes us to be the best.  She taught us wee need to do the right thing when no one is watching."

North Henderson is in the middle of an outstanding season, earning a record of 19-2. 

Sue Moon says, "Henderson County is a very good volleyball community.  To have only two losses is quite good."

Perhaps even more important than their success on the court is their intelligence in the classroom.  Last year, the volleyball team had the highest GPA of any athletic team in the entire state of North Carolina.

Cameron Pryor says, "I was shocked.  I didn't even know we were that smart."

Mathews says, "Every one of the girls pushed to take advanced level classes, AP classes, Honors classes.  We excel in the classroom as well as on the court."

Coach Moon truly embodies what it means to be a teacher and a coach. She always pushes her girls to be better on and off the court. 

Over the weekend, North Henderson hosted the Volley for a Cure and raised $6,000 for Inheritance for a Cure, and another $1,000 for the American Cancer Society. 

Moon says, "I lost my sister to cancer in 1981.  She was also a teacher and a coach.  She would be so proud of what our girls are accomplishing."

If these student athletes are the future of this country, then we should have a lot to look forward to in the years to come.
