Volleyball practice is underway as the 2014 season draws near. New head coach Ashleigh Fitzgerald got a chance to work with the girls in the Spring, but is really getting the Cowgirls prepared for Match 1 on August 29th.
"Really looking forward to getting this season started, returning a lot of kids. I only have 3 new ones. It's my first year and my staff's first year but I feel like we have some familiarity with everybody because we got a chance to work with them in the spring, so we're going 2 a days right now, had a good first practice this morning and going again this afternoon." -Fitzgerald
LAKE CHARLES-- There was a lot of freshness and excitement surrounding McNeese volleyball Monday morning during the first practice of the 2014 season including a new head coach in Ashleigh Fitzgerald and a repainted court in Memorial Gym.
“I would like to thank the Petrochem for providing the funds to have the court redone,” said Fitzgerald. “Without them this would not have happened. We are proud of the new floor and can't wait for our fans to see it as well. My staff and I and some of our kids put our heart and soul into laying down the stencils and painting it. We will put new banners up before our first home match. It gives Memorial Gym a fresh look and all the kids are really excited about it.
