A team captain for the Orangeburg-Wilkinson volleyball team, Tia Peeples is also the senior class president.

Orangeburg, SC (WLTX) --- Two years ago, Pyuncka Peeples was honored as a News19 Player of the Week and now her younger sister is following in her footsteps.

Tia Peeples, a team captain for the Orangeburg-Wilkinson volleyball team, is the first News19 Player of the Week for the 2015-2016 academic year. After earning All-State honors last season, she is currently receiving offers to play at the next level from a handful of schools.

In the classroom, Tia is ranked 10th in the senior class with a 3.8 grade point average and she also makes time to volunteer for a program for special needs children.

Orangeburg-Wilkinson head volleyball coach Denolis Wright says Peeples has taken on the responsibilities of a head coach in terms of making sure the team is organized and ready for practice.
