Fresh off a 30-win start to the non-district season, the volleyball team (30-5) is set to begin district play on Friday in an away matchup against Wylie East (10-11) at 5:30 pm.

“We are looking forward to our first district matchup vs. Wylie East,” head coach Ryan Mitchell said. “They will be one of the top three teams in the district so it will be a great early test for us. Our expectation is to win a district championship this year.”

Lovejoy is currently undefeated on the road (5-0), while the Wylie East Raiders are 3-3 at home.

“Lovejoy typically has high expectations in district due to our area,” junior Cecily Bramschreiber said. “ We want to come first in district, but we also want to use this time to develop and prepare for playoffs. Fine tuning little aspects of our game and making changes before playoffs come around.” 

The Leopards beat the Martin Warriors in four sets last Friday. The Warriors took the lead after winning the first set, but the Leopards won three consecutive sets to win the match. Junior Ellie Jonke led the attack with 17 kills, while sophomore Averi Carlson tallied 46 assists. On defense, juniors Lexie Collins and Brynn Egger both recorded 3 blocks, while junior Callie Kemohah recorded 25 digs.

“We started slow against Martin again which we need to improve upon,” Mitchell said. “Martin was very aggressive with us.  Our defense kept getting better the entire match which helped fuel our offense.”
