Last season’s run to the Class 4A state tournament has lit a fire under the Lafayette Lady Commodores volleyball team.
That fact was never more evident than on Tuesday, when despite beating Water Valley 3-0 (25-18, 25-11, 25-14) the Lady Commodores still wanted more. (September 1, 2010, Page 7)
A day after LHS defeated Senatobia to win its first district match of the season, the team turned around Tuesday and recorded another important district win over WVHS. LHS topped Senatobia 3-0 on Monday and then handled Water Valley with the use of a solid service game and aggressive kill shots.
For LHS coach Rachel Wenzel, playing back-to-back days was a good thing because her team will have to play three matches on Saturday in the Tupelo Volleyfest. (August 25, 2010, Page 9)
Hard work and building towards the future will be the two keys first-year coach Kendra Bensch will try and get her Water Valley Lady Blue Devil volleyball team to focus on this year.
Instead of relying on a veteran group in 2010, Bensch is hoping that the hard work that the team has already demonstrated propels them to new heights as the season moves along. (August 11, 2010, Page 10)
