Volleyball team's season gets underway
The Richland College volleyball teamâ€™s 2008 season gets underway this weekend on the road at a tournament at Lamar College in Port Arthur.
Head coach Zelda Smith and her squad are coming off a season in which the T-Ducks got off to a slow start but ended the regular season strong, ultimately finishing second in the Metro Athletic Conference.
Additionally, several players received all-conference honors, including Ashalyn Scales and NaKiethia Lampkin, whom both earned First-Team All-Conference and All-Region V Team accolades. Both Scales and Lampkin were sophomores last season and wonâ€™t be on this yearâ€™s roster.
However, four freshmen players â€“ Jessica Moore, Ronda Ivey, Jocelyn Brown and Krysta Miles â€“ were awarded honorable mention.
Should they all return to play this season, the T-Duckâ€™s, which featured eight freshmen on last yearâ€™s roster, will have experience in key positions.
Richland College volleyball fans will get their chance to see coach Smithâ€™s team play at home for the first time this year on Monday, Sept. 22 against Brookhaven College.
