Rachel Wenzel

Lady ‘Dores preparing for 2012 season

Amy Scribner blends in with her players rather well.

That is, at least until she begins to give direction and direct practice. (more…) (August 1, 2012, Page 7)

Versatile Smith took her game to another level

Heading into this season Lafayette volleyball coach Rachel Wenzel was faced with a rather large problem: How could the Lady Commodores replace the production and leadership that left along with the graduated senior class?

She knew it would be no easy task, but senior middle blocker Ashley Smith went to Wenzel and requested that her coach trust her enough to allow her to play all the way around, rather than be substituted in the back row. (more…) (October 26, 2011, Page 1B)

Lady Bruins eliminate LHS from playoffs

MADISON — Rachel Wenzel knew her team had its work cut out for it well before the team bus arrived on the gated campus of St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Madison on Tuesday.

Her assumptions were correct.

The Lady Bruins were as good as their 16-match winning streak suggested and they did just enough to eliminate Lafayette from the first round of the Class I playoffs with a 3-0 (25-18, 25-22, 25-20) victory. (October 5, 2011, Page 6)

Lafayette’s quest for its first state volleyball title officially gets underway tonight in Madison with its Class I first-round matchup against St. Joseph Catholic School.

The Lady Bruins (29-5-1) head into tonight’s match fresh off of a 3-0 sweep of Northwest Rankin that capped a 16-match winning streak to conclude their regular season. (more…) (October 4, 2011, Page 6)

OHS ends season with win over LHS

It wasn’t pretty, but the Oxford Chargers volleyball squad was able to conclude their season on Thursday with a 2-0 (26-24, 25-18) defeat of crosstown rival Lafayette at the LHS gym.

After Oxford jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first set, Lafayette chipped away at the lead and eventually tied the set at 17-17 and again at 19-19. (more…) (September 30, 2011, Page 7A)

Lafayette holds on to top Tigers

The Lafayette volleyball team faced off against a somewhat familiar foe on Tuesday.

The Ripley Tigers aren’t familiar in the sense that the two squads play one another often. (more…) (September 14, 2011, Page 6)

Lafayette downs improved Lady Devils

WATER VALLEY — The Water Valley volleyball team has showed marked improvement over the course of the last two weeks.

After being over-powered on Aug. 25 at Lafayette, the Lady Blue Devils played a competitive match in the return trip on Thursday, falling to the Lady Commodores 3-1 (26-24, 25-18, 24-26, 25-21).

Even if the end result was still a loss, it was obvious at Water Valley’s auxiliary gym that the Lady Blue Devils have made significant strides as a team under first-year coach Casey Clouse. (September 9, 2011, Page 8A)

LHS overcomes slow start, tops Senatobia

Rachel Wenzel was  momentarily speechless following her Lady Commodores’ volleyball match against Senatobia on Thursday evening.

After dropping the first two sets, Lafayette rallied to claim a 3-2 (22-25, 22-25, 25-14, 25-22, 15-9) victory at the LHS gym. (September 2, 2011, Page 9A)

Lady ‘Dores work out kinks against WVHS

The Lady Commodores volleyball squad made quick work of Water Valley on Thursday, cruising to a 3-0 (25-8, 25-13, 25-9) win at the LHS gym.

For Lafayette (2-3 overall), Thursday’s match provided coach Rachel Wenzel an opportunity to tweak her starting lineup. (August 26, 2011, Page 7A)

OHS rides fast starts to crosstown sweep

Quick starts in all three matches by Oxford, coupled with Lafayette’s inability to get into a groove until it was too late, led to the Lady Chargers claiming a 3-0 (25-14, 25-22, 25-23) victory in the Crosstown Classic’s volleyball edition at the OHS gym on Thursday.

The match marked the first time in three seasons that the Lady Chargers have come away with the crosstown victory.

In each of the three games Oxford was able to jump out to a 6-1 lead. (August 19, 2011, Page 9A)
