Lady Demons’ DigFest set for April 17

There are two things Northwestern State volleyball does in the spring, DigFest and crawfish, and both are coming to PARC Natchitoches on April 17.

After a successful tournament this past fall, the grass DigFest returns to PARC Natchitoches for the Lady Demons’ annual event and fundraiser. The 4-on-4 bracket competition, now in its ninth year, offers fans and the community a chance to enter a team and join the Lady Demons in some volleyball.

Teams can have up to six people on the roster and one female player must be on the court at all times. DigFest begins at 8 a.m. at PARC Natchitoches located off University Parkway just two miles from the NSU campus.

The entry fee is $125 per team and proceeds from the event aid the NSU volleyball summer scholarship fund, team travel, locker room renovation and other program projects. NSU students who wish to enter a team can do so for only $80 per team with their student ID.

Tournament registration is available at

Boiled crawfish by the pound will also be available for purchase prior to and the day of DigFest. Tickets for four pounds of crawfish are available for $30 with NSU students able to purchase theirs for $25 with their school ID.
