    Just a thought,

  4. Default Madden leaves UL for ESA

    The Episcopal School of Acadiana volleyball job didn't stay open very long, and now it's the University of Louisiana that has a position to fill.

    UL volleyball coach Becky Madden takes her three years of experience as head coach of the Ragin' Cajuns, eight years of collegiate head coaching and 14 years of college experience to the legendary ESA program.

    "I wasn't out there looking for a job," said Madden, "although for the last five years, in the back of my mind, I'd been thinking about transitioning into high school. But it had to be a good opportunity."

    That opportunity presented itself late last week when Ursula Quoyeser stepped down after a historic 11 years as coach of the Lady Falcons. Nine of a national-record 16 straight state Division V titles came under Quoyeser, whose team also reached the state finals two years ago and the semifinals last fall.

    "I knew I didn't want just any high school position," said Madden, "and this really was the opportunity of a lifetime. Something like this probably would never have come up again ... it was great timing, a great situation, a great volleyball program and a great school. Everything kind of fell into place."

    Madden informed UL officials and her team of her decision Tuesday.

  5. UL Volleyball Jamie Sinegal focused on collegiate play

    BATON ROUGE - Once former Acadiana High Lady Rams volleyball player Jamie Sinegal's high school career came to an end, she quickly turned her attention towards her number one goal - playing collegiate ball.

    And although Sinegal didn't receive the interest that she thought she deserved, giving up was never an option.

    "That's not me," Sinegal said. "I'm not the type of person to give up. When you give up that is when you really lose. Failure to me is to give up."

    While she did have junior college opportunities, Sinegal continued to work hard with hopes that a Division I school would take notice.

    And finally someone did as then Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns head coach Becky Madden, who has since left to take over the head coaching job at ESA, offered Sinegal a scholarship.

    "I knew that I could have gone to junior college for two years," Sinegal said. "But I really wanted to play for Becky Madden. I wanted to stay close to home and I love the fact that my parents will have the opportunity to come out and see me play."

    "I'm really excited for Jamie," Lady Rams volleyball coach Anne Roger said. "Jamie made the decision to play college ball late, because a lot of people thought she would go somewhere and run track. So I'm happy for her."

    Roger said that the Cajuns are getting quite the competitor in Sinegal.

    "Jamie is very confident," Roger said. "But she is also very much a competitor. Jamie is one of those people that on the court will do everything they can do to rise to the occasion. She is not the type of player to lay back when the game is at a critical point. She's the one to step up."

    Although she has a college scholarship, Sinegal has continued to work hard during the summer.
