HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Lamar County School District's board unanimously approved a new volleyball facility for Oak Grove High School.

The million dollar project will be privately funded and will be donated to the district once completed. Many community members will be sponsoring the facility including Brett and Deanna Favre. Fundraising has already begun and plans have been made. Oak Grove High School Volleyball Coach Kelsea Seymour said the team is more than excited.

"This is one of the first volleyball women's facilities in general, not just volleyball, that we will have in the state," said Seymour. "As far, as a volleyball only facility, I don't know of any other in the country. So, the girls and I are all really excited."

Seymour said that she is hopeful that phase one will be complete by volleyball season in August. The main purpose of the building will be for girls volleyball matches and tournaments. The facility will be located on the northeast corner of the football stadium next to the field house and is excepted to match the athletic facilities nearby.

    Though she stands at just 4-foot-10, Aimee Durn is a force for the Jones County Junior College women's soccer club. The short freshman from England is a big reason the Lady Bobcats are 5-0-1. "They say big things come in small packages and that's very true for Aimee," said tenth-year JCJC women's soccer coach Dolores Deasley.
