Our Lady Academy taking aim on back-to-back State Volleyball titles

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) -

OLA head coach Mike Meyers and assistant coach Steve Reboul have put together another solid volleyball team, capable of winning

back-to-back state titles, the 8th for the Crescents since 2002. 

Reboul said,"I don't want to say they are the best, but they are one of the best that we've ever had. They are very fast, they jump real well. They hit the ball really hard and they never stop moving."

The Crescents have posted 39 games under the win column, 2 defeats and are ranked number one in the state.

Resurrection is 22-2 and 1. The two setbacks were at the hands of OLA.

The Lady Eagles are ranked number four in the state.

Over the years, OLA has built a winning reputation and the 2013 Crescents have lived up to those high expectations.

"I guess you can say we have a target on our back," stated Shelby McConnell. She added,"Teams want to defeat us so we have to defend our dynasty and we know we have to perform and do our best."

Brittany Corder said,"We work a lot better this year. We have been practicing longer. I think we're doing a lot better this year and we had a great team last year."

Our Lady Academy is 16 and 0 at home this season and is ranked 330th in the Max Preps national volleyball rankings.

Lafayette and Senatobia meet in the Class I North State finals tomorrow night and that winner will meet the Resurrection-OLA survivor Saturday morning at 11 in the State championship finals at Mississippi College in Clinton.

Long Beach travels to East Central Tuesday night at 6 in the Class II South State Volleyball finals and Ocean Springs is on the road at Hancock at sixTuesday night in the Class III South State finals.
