Grades!

As we go past the first progress report, it's amazing how fast a school year goes! The end of the first 6 weeks is September 27th, and the biggest adjustment for 7th graders is that they can lose eligibilty for football, cross country, volleyball or marching band if they have failing grades.


Don't wait until it's too late! If you need access to TxConnect, please email Sue Kunze(Sue_Kunze@lagovista.txed.net) for a Portal ID. If you need tech support, please email Monica Kaiser(Monica_Kaiser@lagovista.txed.net).

Volleyball Highlights

8th Grade Volleyball vs Florence

Our volleyball teams played Florence at home on Thursday. Below you will find the results for our 8th grade teams:


8 Blue:

Our Blue team won the first set 25-13 and the second set 25-10.

Our leading servers were Emily Romer with 16 serves and Maddie Nowlin with 6 serves. Leading passers were Maddie Nowlin with 10 digs, Rylie Greenlees with 5 digs, and Alanna Biniak with 5 digs. Our attack leaders were Alanna Biniak with 3 hits, and Rylie Greenlees and Kambree Meyer both with 2 hits. Also contributing to our team win was: Gabby Williams, Kira Federoff, Reagan Phariss, Sabrina Vaughan, and Dana Jensen


8 Gold:

Our Gold team also beat Florence in 2 sets with scores of 25-16 and 25-6.


Our leading servers were Sana Felix with 10 serves and Jaelyn Hergenreder and Addison Lockhart each with 5 serves. Leading passers were Brooke Everett with 14 digs and Jaelyn Hergenreder with 9. Finally, our leading hitter was Addison Lockhart with 5 attacks. We also saw great plays by: Abbie Wood, Emma Clark, Kendall Karg, Jada Malone, and Mary Spiers.


7 Gold

We defeated the Florence Lady Buffaloes this past Monday night in 3 sets. The Lady Vikings came out strong in the 1st set winning 25-11; however they were unable to get any mojo going from behind the service line or in serve receive and stumbled in the 2nd set losing 16-25. The 3rd set was all Lady Vikings as they found their form and dominated the final set to win 25-10. The girls continue to show improvement in their all around game. They’re getting much better at transitioning from defense to offense, trying to get to a spike on every possession. Unfortunately trying to spike as much as possible leads to committing some hitting errors from time to time. They’ve been told that they’ll have to work through those mistakes/steps to get to the level that we all want to be at. This is an eager group of young ladies who want to play at a high level. As I’ve stated before, I can’t wait to see just how well they’ll be playing in a few weeks time.


Outstanding Performers vs Florence:

Amelia Robinson: 5 Kills

Mikayla Vasquez: 7 aces, and 7 assists, 2 Kills

Melanie Sansom: 2 kills, 2 aces

Canon Yetley: 2 Assists, 3 aces

Natalie Kercheville: 1 Ace

Sydney Heibert: 1 Kill, 1 ace

Great Defensive efforts: Lana Spedale, Maddie Kassell, Chloe Patton, Hannah Simmons


7 Blue:

Our Blue team won the first set 25-7 and the second set 25-12.

Our leading servers were Megan Conine with 11 serves, both Emily Jungman and Paige Parsons with 8 serves, and Emma Prestage with 7 serves. Leading passers were Patience Solis with 6 digs and Megan Conine with 3 digs. Our assist leader was Stella Gjelaj with 3 assists. Also contributing to our team win was: Claire Brumfield, Isabella Adams, Phoebe Badger, Liana Faz and Lindsay Sanders.
