Loboette Volleyball Polling Well in the South Plains, Royal Named to Pre-Season Super Team

 

Levelland Loboette Volleyball, as well as other surrounding schools, open the season this week, and the Loboettes find themselves ranked number three by the Lone Star Varsity Top Ten preseason poll and Levelland Senior Paige Royal is a member of the Super Team.

The Levelland Loboettes are ranked number three in the recently released poll, polling below number one Trinity Christian, a Lubbock TAPPS school and the Karli Morrison led Lubbock Cooper Lady Pirates as they poll at number two.

The Levelland Loboettes return lots of talent for 2017 and with veteran coach Shelly Kay at the helm, the Loboettes will look for a district title and an improvement on their Regional Quarterfinal appearance from 2016.

Shallowater is ranked fourth while Lobo district opponents Denver City polls number six and Seminole polls at number seven. The Littlefield Lady Cats poll at number nine.

While the Loboettes return a ton of talent, Paige Royal certainly should be a focal point for a solid season.

Royal, the daughter of Barry and Jana Royal of Levelland, has been to the Lone Star Varsity Volleyball Preseason Super Team.

As a first teamer in the district voting from 2016 Royal tallied over 400 kills, over 300 digs and 22 blocks in 2016.

Other first team members of the Super Team include Peyton Himango and Brandi Marshall from Trinity Christian, Addi Peters from Lubbock Cooper, Lily McKay from All Saints, and Holly Hemmeline from Denver City.

The Loboettes scrimmage on Monday at home against Plainview.  Varsity is set to start at 12:30pm with the Junior Varsity One scrimmaging in the Auxiliary gym at 12:30pm and Junior Varsity Two at 12:30 at the Levelland Middle School.
