March Mayhem is a coed 4 vs. 4 volleyball tournament hosted at the Laramie High School by the LHS volleyball team acting as a fundraiser for the team.

March Mayhem will be on March 24-25. On Saturday March 24 is the Adult A and Adult B divisions. On Sunday March 25 is the 18 and under divisions. To enter there is a $80 fee. This fee includes one full day of play (pool play and tournament play), tournament shirts, prizes for first and second place in both divisions, and player party.

The Laramie volleyball is hosting this event as a fundraiser for their 2018 fall season. The money they will get from this fundraiser will be used for summer camps, volleyball gear and equipment and food for the athletes.

To save money, some of the Laramie volleyball athletes will be helping work the tournament. This will also help put their faces out there and let the community get the chance to meet the players for LHS.

“I’m really excited to be able to go help with this tournament. I think it will be a good experience for the girls,” junior Kelsey Crane said.

The athletes will also be able to participate in the tournament if they want to.

“Its cool that we are also able to participate in the games. It will give us practice in a game situation. I have a team and will be competing in the tournament,” Crane said.

Last year the Laramie volleyball team went to two very elite summer camps. One was in Laramie at the university of Wyoming and the other in the University of Nebraska at Kearney. These camps are used to strengthen team and individual skills.

Laramie’s volleyball season last year was one of the best seasons in years. They went undefeated in conference and took third place at the state tournament losing to Cheyenne East High School in the semifinals breaking Laramie’s undefeated record.

“The girls were absolutely devastated when they lost that game, especially the seniors. But if we work hard I think we can have an even more successful team next season,” Crane said.

The LHS volleyball players are also practicing on off season as well.

“Right now we are doing a traveling club team (AAU) that will help us prepare for next season and get used to a new team,” Crane said.

The program lost 5 seniors for next season. Shyanne Bastian, Lexi Pulley, Maia Edwards, Katy Welniak, and Caely Pickard, who all were starters.
