Lady Leps Stun Defending State Runner-Ups

The Needville volleyball team won the state title in 2017 and was state runner-ups last year.

But the La Grange Lady Leps made Needville’s stay in the 2019 postseason a short one, knocking off the Lady Jays in a five-set thriller Monday in Sealy in the opening round of the 4A playoffs.
