The varsity volleyball team had a strong showing at the Carencro Volleyball Tournament this weekend.

The tournament was held on Thursday, Sept. 9 through Saturday, Sept. 11.  The girls played at Carencro High School.  On Thursday, they beat Acadiana High.  They also beat Rayne and Broadmoor on Saturday but lost to St. Martinville in the semi-finals.

“We played on Saturday with only six girls in extremely hot temperatures in a gym with no air conditioning,” said Coach Jill Braun.
