Beckville

The Beckville Ladycats continue to roll along, moving to 10-1 on the season with a couple of wins last week.

A big part of the success has been the steady play of Avery Morris, who earned East Texas Volleyball Player of the Week honors for her performances in wins over Class 3A Harmony and Class 2A No. 5 Neches.

Morris recorded 20 kills, 26 digs, four blocks and four aces for the week. She opened the week with a couple of aces, eight kills, six digs and two blocks in a 25-16, 25-16, 25-13 win over Harmony, and then added two aces, 12 kills, 20 digs and two blocks in an 18-25, 25-19, 25-19, 25-22 win over neches.

Beckville, ranked No. 2 in last week’s Class 2A poll by the Texas Girls Coaches Association, will host Troup tonight and then visit Class 3A No. 3 Sabine on Friday.
