Lady Mustangs get back on the court


Camryn Frederick, Quincey Surface, Tyana Brown, Tra’Dayja Smith and Lexi Leveston were back at home on the Mustang volleyball court Monday morning as the Lady Mustangs began two-a-days.

Head Coach Melissa Padgett is known for her grueling practices, but the girls appeared to be up for the challenge.

“What I put these girls through is a feat in and of itself,” Padgett said during the MCISD athletic banquet in May. “They never gave up on me. No one can take away what y’all did in two-a-days.”

The team finished 22-16 overall and 4-4 in district last season, and almost all the starters are returning this year. Surface was named the volleyball team’s MVP for the 2015 season, and Brown is No. 1 academically in the MHS senior class.

The Lady Bulldogs persevered through tough practices this week, and Padgett continued to push them.

“I don’t care if y’all do everything I say,” she told the athletes. “I care if you can pass the ball.”

The Lady Mustangs scrimmage at home on Saturday at 9 a.m. Varsity takes the court vs. A&M Consolidated at 6 p.m. Aug. 9 at Mustang Gym.
