The revamped Central volleyball program is off to a great start. Much of that early success can be attributed to the strong leadership from core players such as Addason Wellington. This season, Wellington has compiled 24 aces, 9 kills, and 4 blocks in four games.

“Addi has contributed to the team by always being positive… she always shares her encouragement and words of advice,” shared junior Sydney Woodward.

The Digest sat down with Addason to get a glimpse into her life on and off the court. Central High athletes dedicate an immense amount of time and energy to their respective sports, so it is only right for the community to get a look inside what makes Pounder athletics so special.
