DeSoto Central, Lewisburg highlight county volleyball hotbed


After 17 years as a college coach, Amy Hendrichovsky got a peek at how special volleyball was in DeSoto County in her one season at St. Benedict in 2019.

Over the course of the 40 matches that the Eagles played, two of them were against Northwest Mississippi’s finest – DeSoto Central and Lake Cormorant.

A year later, Hendrichovsky filled the coaching vacancy in Lewisburg. And now, she’s in the middle of the tense rivalries, the lengthy playoff runs and the state-championship tradition.

On Oct. 3, Hendrichovsky brought her team to Hernando to compete in the annual DeSoto County Tournament. The all-day event began with seven teams and ended with two heated rivals, that will soon look to make deep postseason runs in hopes of adding to their Mississippi High School Activities Association title-winning ways.
