St. Amant's Baylee Rambin is one of the parish volleyball players to watch in 2017.

With the beginning of the school year, we finally get our first taste of prep sports since May.

Football may be getting much of the attention and hype, but volleyball is right around the corner as well.

Every year, Ascension fields some of the best volleyball teams in the parish. Last season, five of the six schools reached the playoffs. That same kind of success is expected in 2017.

Baylee Rambin (St. Amant)

St. Amant will head into the season missing a lot of firepower from last season. They will be without all-district players like Maggie Duplechein, Madison Anderson and the district’s reigning Defensive MVP, Brianne Babin. They will be looking to Baylee Rambin to pick up some of the slack. Rambin had a breakout 2016 as she earned second-team all-district honors.
