Lesley Marshall

Lesley Marshall of La Porte, center, digs a ball during Thursday’s match with Merrillville. A state-champion gymnast when she was younger, Marshall decided to focus on volleyball, where she surpassed 1,000 career digs earlier this season.

La PORTE – On the surface, volleyball and gymnastics don’t have much in common.

You have to dig a little deeper to the psychology of the sports to find the parallel.
