Congratulations to the Lebanon Trail volleyball team, which had a great start to the 2019 season this weekend when it won the Marauder Showcase in Flower Mound.
The Trail Blazers won the two-day event that included four other high school teams: Marcus, Grapevine, Amarillo and Hebron (which won its fifth state title in 2017).
Lebanon Trail had two players on the All-Tournament team, Lexi Abbey and Rayna Williams. Tyrah Ariail was named the Marauder Showcase Most Valuable Player.
The showcase victory is a first step in what Lebanon Trail hopes is a big 2019 -- its first season with seniors. Lebanon Trail made the playoffs last year without any seniors.
The Class of 2020 is the first group of seniors at LTHS, which opened in 2016 with just freshmen and has added a class in each successive year.
