EAST CENTRAL -- With the simple stroke of her pen last Wednesday, Megan Dugie added her name to the growing list of East Central athletes who will compete at the collegiate level next year. Dugie will attend Texas Lutheran University (TLU) in Seguin, and will compete as a member of the Bulldog volleyball team.

Dugie had a great senior season for the Lady Hornets, and several schools threw their proverbial hats in the ring as she weighed her options for next year. Passing on schools such as East Texas Baptist University, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, and West Texas A&M University, Dugie felt TLU was the best option for her, and is excited about Bulldog volleyball.

“The coach has a great program, and I wanted to be a part of it,” she said.

The school’s “environment” and proximity to home were also reasons that led to her decision.

“We left it up to her, but were glad she decided to stay close to home,” her father, Ross, said.

Dugie said she plans to major in speech therapy, saying it sounded like an interesting field to her. She said English and writing were among her favorite subjects in high school, and she seems to be heading in the right way academically.

Attending TLU will mean a move, and a degree of separation from her friends and family. Dugie believes that will be the most difficult aspect of her transition, and admits she will greatly miss her friends and family.

“I’m going to miss my friendships,” she said. “I grew up with everyone here.”

While she may be glancing in the rear view, she remains excited about the opportunity ahead of her. She is most looking forward to continuing to play the sport she loves, and to experiencing a “new chapter” in her life.

Dugie has a number of fond memories from her time on the court at East Central, but it may surprise some to know her most memorable moment was actually a loss.

“It was in a match with Corpus Christi Carroll,” she said. “The team fought hard and came together as a single unit. We lost, but we played well, and really became a team that day.”

As for teams, the Lady Hornet volleyball team is certainly going to miss Dugie’s presence on the floor. Team members turned out for her signing, and it was clear to see she was a big part of the team’s success over the past few years. It’s a safe bet her new Bulldog teammates will soon feel the same way, and that she will find similar success at TLU.
