LAFAYETTE (KATC) — In 2018 Julia Blazek moved from the front line, to playing the libero position as Teurlings Catholic won it’s sixth-straight championship.

Blazek filled Chloey Hamilton’s shoes, an all-state Libero who played for Louisiana University this year. She filled them well enough to earn a beach volleyball scholarship at UL Monroe.

Blazek signed her letter of intent last week and said while she was excited to continue her career, she admitted it will be hard to top the last four years as a Rebel.

“(It’s) the most amazing experience I’ve ever had,” she said. “I’ve loved these girls. All four years. Not even because we’re successful at volleyball, it’s just like the atmosphere and I get to do it with my friends and it’s just been great.”
