The Northwestern State University Volleyball team held its annual Spring DigFest fundraiser Saturday April 17 at the new Parc Natchitoches. The Spring DigFest, along with one held in the fall, are fundraisers for the NSU Volleyball team and a fun annual tradition for our community since 2010.
The day long tournament featured 15 teams from around the area competing for bragging rights. When they were not battling on the court, players enjoyed 300 pounds of crawfish donated by a local seafood business. The DigFest is held to finance projects and items for the team not covered by their budget, such as new equipment for practicing and a few nice extras while on the road. This year’s Spring DigFest is expected to raise $3,000.00 to assist Demon Volleyball.
Northwestern State University’s Volleyball team boasts 15 players coming to NSU from Louisiana and surrounding states. The team has a phenomenal 100% graduation rate and has boasted the highest grade point average of any NSU sports team for four of the past six years with the team being second highest for the other two years of Coach Sean Kiracofe’s tenure. These young women are a success on, and off, the court!
The Demons first home game of the 2022 season will be on August 31 vs. the University of Louisiana Monroe. The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes this group of superb scholar-athletes every success in their upcoming season. Fork ’em Demons!
