Lady ‘Cat Volleyball under new leadership


DEMING – Ken Leupold is familiar with Lady Wildcat Volleyball. The long-tenured teacher/coach held the head varsity job back in the early 2000s. “It’s truly a rebuilding year, with three returning varsity players,” Leupold said. But that’s the way he likes it.

The 2021 varsity was senior-laden but struggled to maintain consistency through an 8-14 overall record and a 1-11 District 3-5A slate. Deming High will no longer compete at the Class 5A level and has been dropped into Class 4A where they are expected to be at a higher competitive level against Chaparral, Santa Teresa, and Silver High of Silver City.

The trio of Lady ‘Cats coach Leupold will build around are senior Moniqa Enciso (5-10), junior Brizella Baeza (5-9) and senior senior Victoria Baca (5-9). “All three played in the middle last year and they will move out to the posts this season,” Leupold said.
