Lafayette volleyball

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)

    Lady ‘Dores make quick work of H.W. Byers

    Lafayette’s home volleyball opener went the way coach Rachel Wenzel was hoping with a 3-0 (25-3, 25-7, 25-8) win over H.W. Byers. LHS improved its record to 1-1 with the victory.

    Rae Drewrey was fantastic as a server in the win as she recorded 25 aces, including 19 in a row in the first game. Drewrey also had a solo block and a kill in the victory for the Lady Commodores, who used Tuesday’s match as a tune-up heading into Thursday’s contest at Oxford. (more…) (August 17, 2011, Page 7)

      Prep volleyball set to get going

      While the area football teams are braving the blistering heat, the prep volleyball squads are busting their tails in their respective gyms preparing for their season openers. While Oxford opens its season this weekend in Jackson at the Set It Off Challenge, Lafayette and Water Valley begin on Tuesday.

      Water Valley will be led by first-year coach Casey Clouse, who admits it could be an interesting first season with the Lady Blue Devils. (August 5, 2011, Page 9A)

        Lafayette’s Rafnson wins Player of the Year award

        On a senior-laden Lafayette volleyball squad this season, it was junior Charlotte Rafnson that stood out most.

        Despite being a first-time starter at libero, Rafnson was an integral part of a Lady Commodores team that advanced to the North Half title game and finished with a 16-7 record, and because of Rafnson’s leadership and acrobatic playing style, she is the 2010 Oxford EAGLE Player of the Year. (November 16, 2010, Page 1B)

            Win propels Lafayette to North Half

            There have been a slew of matches recently where the Lafayette Lady Commodores volleyball team was able to cruise to victory.

            While Lafayette still defeated Ackerman 3-0 (25-20, 25-17, 25-16) at home to advance to the third round of the Class 1 playoffs, Tuesday’s victory was not one of those matches. (October 6, 2010, Page 9)

              Adjustments pay off as LHS rolls Caledonia

              All season the Lafayette volleyball team has battled sluggish starts.

              Saturday’s Class 1 first-round playoff matchup at Caledonia was no different, but luckily for the Lady Commodores, they were able to overcome slow starts in all three games to claim a 3-0 (25-20, 25-16, 25-14) victory. (more…) (October 4, 2010, Page 4B)

                Lady ‘Dores finish regular season strong

                The Oxford Tri-Match Tournament meant two different things for the Oxford Chargers and Lafayette Lady Commodores Thursday evening.

                For a young Oxford squad, the tournament meant the end to what has been a difficult season with only one senior.

                For Lafayette, the tournament — in which the Lady ‘Dores topped Oxford 2-0 (25-16, 25-11) and Tupelo 2-0 (25-20, 25-20) — was a good warmup for their first-round playoff match on Saturday at Caledonia. (October 1, 2010, Page 6A)

                    Lady ‘Dores get big volleyball win Thursday night

                    Reports of the Lafayette Lady Commodores’ demise may have been slightly premature.

                    On Thursday, Lafayette virtually checked its ticket to the playoffs with a convincing 3-1 (25-16, 21-25, 25-10, 25-16) win over Class I, Region 2 opponent Center Hill.

                    The emotional victory subsequently put the Mustangs and Lady Commodores in a tie for the second spot in Region 2, but according to the Mississippi High School Activities Association’s rule book, Lafayette will advance because it wins the third tie breaker. (September 24, 2010, Page 7A)
