Volleyball summer league
By Chad DeRousselle
McNeese head volleyball coach Ashleigh Fitzgerald has made it possible for our summer league to continue playing there.
The teams taking part in our eightth season are: Barbe, Northside Christian, Rayne, DeQuincy, Westlake, Iowa, Vinton, Hamilton Christian, Jennings, Leesville, Sam Houston, Sulphur, and Central Medical Magnet High School out of Texas.
Last week the DeQuincy JV did well against Leesville JV and Vinton varsity, and got challenged against the Iowa varsity.
Playing for DeQuincy JV were: Madison Steward, Baily Duplechain, Meghan Dyer, Ashlyn Smart, Zaria Anderson, Abby Cooley, Akezie David, Sydney Lucius, Jaila Parker, Quintazhia Roy, and Leah Spears.
The DeQuincy varsity played well against Vinton and Sam Houston. Rayne gave us fits in our first appearance this summer. Through the four matches that we played there were a lot of individual highlights and by the last match with Sam Houston the individuals started looking like a team.
Playing for varsity were Darci Bonin, Ashlyn Smart, Ashlan Marcantel, Brenan Marcantel, Hanna Turnage, Lindsay Blanks, Akezie David, Tamia Grant, Zaria Anderson, and Lauren LeBlanc.
Our league schedule began on July 1, and continues on July 8, 17, and 22. We will also play in the Barbe Team Camp on July 30.
