The Lloyd Memorial Lady Juggernauts volleyball team is underway in their new and exciting season. The lady Juggs started their season off against an always tough Holy Cross team in the 9th Region Touchstone All “A” Classic on August 18th. The Juggernauts faced a very tough defeat against a very talented team, but fought hard.
Along with a new season come’s a few new additions. These additions include new head coach Brittany Li Calzi and new JV/Assistant Varsity coach Heather Krebs. Also the new school year brings new freshmen players. Out of teams 14 players, 8 of them are accounted for as freshmen. They bring a lot of new and up and coming talent.
“We have potential to do great things, but it’s going to take a lot of hard work, improvements, and execution to get us to the point where we want to be.” Addison Viox, Freshmen.
The Juggernauts only have one senior this season, Payton Brown. She’ll have plenty of weight to carry on her shoulders this year. She’ll be one of the main contributors of the team’s improvements and will really need to push her team to meet some of their high expectations.
“We are a young team so I’m really looking forward to grow as the season progresses. We are very capable at winning a lot of games this season” Brown, Senior.
Jasmine Huntley, Junior, states, “We have a lot of tough completion this year. Out of all the teams we’ll face St. Henry, Holy Cross, and Newport Central Catholic will be toughest battles”.
As the Juggernauts begin their season, they have matchups against Newport High School (Home) on September 3rd, Ludlow High School (Away) on September 4th, and Saint Henry (Home) on September 8th. All games should be intense and interesting. Go Juggs!
