Jessamine ladies earn
for district volleyball
East Jessamine's Renee Byrd and West Jessamine's Britteny Rader were named to the 40th district's all-tournament volleyball team on Tuesday, Oct. 13.
Both East and West were defeated in the first round of district play; East (1-26) fell to the Lexington Catholic Lady Knights, 2-0 (25-1, 25-9), on Monday and the Lady Colts were defeated by the Lexington Christian Academy Lady Eagles, 2-0 (25-7, 25-12) on the same evening.
East Jessamine head Coach Steve Schweitzer called Byrd, a senior hitter, the team's "rock," and said she provided much-needed leadership for the young Lady Jags this season.
