LOVELADY — The Lovelady Lady Lions volleyball team served up a three-set victory playing in the school's new gymnasium for the first time on Tuesday, Sept. 20.

The Lady Lions swept Grapeland 25-6, 25-13, 25-11 in their District 23-2A opener.

Senior Haven Prager's serve was the first by a Lady Lion in the new facility.

Taking part in the history-making match for Lovelady were Morgan Womack, McKinzie Seale, A'nyya Mitchell, Alayna McCullough, MaKenna Pierce, Shyla LeMaire, Arris LeMaire, Haley Shupak, Kylie Pugh, Olivia Ice, Addi Carney, Shelby Pugh and Haven Prager.

Lovelady dominated the district last year, clinching the championship with a perfect 13-0 record with three-set sweeps in every match.

Groveton was district runnerup, Latexo was third and Colmesneil was fourth. The district also included four 1A schools, but the UIL created separate districts for the smaller schools this time around.

Corrigan-Camden and Grapeland round out the district this year. Corrigan dropped from class 3A, where is was a district runner-up and Grapeland moved from another 2A district.

The Lady Lions picked up their second district win Friday at Colmesneil 25-12, 25-18, 24-26, 25-20.

Fans have two opportunities to see the Lady Lions in action at home this week against Corrigan on Tuesday and Grovetonon Friday.
