LSU Volleyball finds fan's wedding ring during cleanup efforts
BATON ROUGE - In a continuing trend of student athletes pitching in during a trying time, the LSU Volleyball team turned out to an LSU fan’s house to help him get started with the cleanup.
While the extra help was enough of a surprise, Dennis Denicola got some amazing lagniappe whenever the team removed some flooded carpet. He found his lost wedding ring.
The Tiger volleyball squad and staff were working on his house when the discovery was made. Brandon Berrio of LSU Volleyball said they came back from a break and threw themselves into demolishing some drywall. After that, they pulled out the carpet and that’s when the discovery was made.
Director of Operations Laura Whalen went to pop out the baseboard, and there the ring was. Dennis said he hadn’t been able to locate the ring for more than a month. It had somewhat risen with the flood water before coming to rest on top of the baseboard.
Dennis owns and operates Denicola's Tiger Den Gifts & Custom LSU Furniture.
