Maygan Bloyed signs with Ranger

GREENVILLE —   Getting Greenville senior Maygan Bloyed to work hard in practice won’t be a problem for Ranger Junior College.

  Ranger’s volleyball program is bringing in a very hard-worker after Bloyed signed a letter of intent.

  “I think she’s going to do great,” said Lady Lions volleyball coach Amanda Marek. “I think she’s going to get out there and work hard. She’s got a great work ethic.”

  Bloyed earned second-team All-District 13-4A honors this past season for the Lady Lions in a tough district that included five-time state champion Lucas Lovejoy.

  Bloyed finished with 113 kills in district play, an average of 8.1 per game, plus 59 blocks and also served for 22 aces. She plans to play outside hitter for Ranger, which went 7-22 last season under   head coach Hayley Schaffer.

  Bloyed said Schaffer first spotted her when she played club ball at a tournament at North Richland Hills for Club Vertical.

  What is it about volleyball that Bloyed likes the most?

  “I like being part of the team,” she said. “Making new friends.”

  And also pounding that volleyball.

  Now Bloyed is pounding a soccer ball with her foot after joining the Lady Lions’ two-time defending district champions.

  “I wish I would have played all four years,” she said.

  Bloyed also played softball as a sophomore and ran track and field in middle school.

  What’ll she do to get ready for Ranger’s season next fall?

  “I’m going to work hard over the summer,” she said.
