This week at Lamar Theatre
The Lamar Community College volleyball team will enter Region IX-South play 14-7 after winning two of three in Clarendon, Texas, over the weekend.
The Lopes earned sweeps against Clarendon and Garden City after dropping a five-set battle to Blinn at the Bulldog Classic. The team is home this week for three straight region matches beginning with Northeastern Junior College on Thursday.
The Galaxy Gallery, located at 108 North Main in Lamar, has recently opened to provide a showcase for artists of different styles, media, and visions. The hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and weekends by appointment.
Vincent Gearhart, one of the gallery curators said, "We are very happy to be able to provide artists of all types in southeast Colorado a location where they can have their artwork available for display to the public and not kept in a closet or storage area someplace."
Lamar Community College is currently accepting vendor applications for the 44thAnnual Art, Craft & Food Festival set for November 10. Vendor space is limited, so any interested businesses are encouraged to submit the application as soon as possible to reserve their space.
Vendor applications are available online at lamarcc.edu/about-lcc/communityinvolvement. Applications are due by October 22.
The first match was a too-close-for-comfort win, and the second was a tense almost-but-not-quite loss. Together, they may have unlocked the potential of a team in need of an awakening.
The Lamar Community College volleyball team played its most impressive and consistent volleyball of the young season during a 4-1 showing at the Blue Mountain Inn & Suites Invitational at Colorado Northwestern Community College in Rangely, Colorado, over the weekend.
The Lopes know that whatever the 2018 season has in store for them, it won't come easy, but it will be worth it.
With only four returners joined by 11 newcomers, the Lamar Community College volleyball team will rely now more than ever on its strong culture, veteran leadership and team unity as they fight through a schedule peppered with perennial powerhouses and National Tournament hopefuls.
