Lady Brahma set to join VC's volleyball team

Cassidy Targac will be walking at her high school graduation in Hallettsville's signature maroon-colored robes on Friday.
And after committing to play volleyball for Victoria College next year, she won't have to change up much of her maroon wardrobe.
The 18-year-old multisport player agreed to play for VC because of its proximity to Hallettsville.
"I'm a very homey person, and my sister had played on the VC volleyball team, so I figured I could follow in her footsteps," Targac said.
A torn labrum during her junior year put her college plans into perspective.
"I had an offer from the University of New Orleans, but after they found out about my shoulder, they were wary about it," Targac said. "I also had an offer from Sam Houston to go for track, but I think the discus is what got me (injured)."
Targac had shoulder surgery in May 2013 and was able to play a portion of her senior volleyball season.
She was back in full action for basketball season and helped lead the Lady Brahmas to the Class 2A state semifinal game.
Targac said volleyball is her favorite sport to play and also her strongest.
"I loved volleyball ever since I could play," she said. "I couldn't imagine going a couple more years without volleyball."
Targac will be joining several other incoming freshmen from the Crossroads on the VC volleyball team including Sydney Morris from Goliad, Kristin Moring from Schulenburg and Jada Whitby and Destani Villarreal from Victoria East.
"I love the bond that you make with the other girls, and with track, the event that I did, it was just yourself," Targac said.
