Lady Pack volleyball squad ready to compete in district

Maria Mejia, Panther Growls staff member

Volleyball Head Coach Leah Flores said she’s proud of where her team is as it begins district competition tonight.

“What I’ve liked about this year is that all of my players worked hard over the summer and I saw most of them on a daily basis,” she said.

Flores said her team is counting on seniors Riley Latham, Kennedy Shelton and Lexy Ramirez, along with junior Camryn Beam, to lead the team into district play.

Other members of the Lady Panthers varsity volleyball squad include seniors Aneka McKind, Stefani Hernandez and Brooke Washburn, in addition to sophomores Catera Brown and Reagan Hill.

“I have noticed that other teams have more players and subs, but I know my one player to their two can still compete,” Flores said. “We’re still working on being better than their two, though.”

The Lady Panthers began practice the first day of August and played their first scrimmage on Aug. 3. Tonight’s match against Nacogdoches is the team’s district and home opener.

“I expect every night of district games to be a battle,” Flores said. “We cannot be a roller coaster team.”
