The NSU Volleyball Team got its season off to an auspicious start, defeating the Ragin’ Cajuns of ULL in an exhibition match Saturday, August 21. The Demon’s took three sets of the five, giving the team a good start and momentum going into the Tulane Invite in New Orleans August 27-28.

The ladies of Demon Volleyball are not only a success on the court, but off the court as well. During the tenure of head coach Sean Kiracofe, the team has earned a phenomenal 100 percent graduation rate. Last year’s team GPA was an impressive 3.96. The NSU Volleyball team personifies all that is good about the student-athlete concept.

Coaching runs in the Kiracofe family. Kerri Kiracofe, Sean’s wife, is the new head coach of the NCHS Volleyball Team.
The NCHS Volleyball team was the winningest team of any sport in the parish schools last year and looks to continue its winning ways this season. Coach Kerri had her team in the stands observing and learning from the NSU team as they prepare for their upcoming season.

The NSU Football team came out in force to support their fellow athletes on the Volleyball team. The football players kept up a vociferous series of chants and cheers throughout the match. Well done gentlemen!

The NSU Volleyball home opener will be Tuesday, August 31 at 6:30 vs. the Warhawks of ULM. The Natchitoches Parish Journal extends its best wishes for a successful year to the NSU volleyball team as they embark on their upcoming season. Come on out and support some superb student-athletes!

The Natchitoches Parish Journal also extends its best wishes to the NCHS Volleyball team as it embarks on its upcoming season.
