As we await the start of the 2020 volleyball season, VYPE Volleyball Insider Chuck Licata is taking this extra time to catch up with some of the biggest names in coaching.
Licata talks with them about the pandemic, how it has changed their approach to 2020 and more of changes and challenges facing the sport of volleyball as they try to start.
Here is Chuck Licata's full interview with The Woodlands' Teri Wade.
Sports are back y'all! It started with the return of pro sports. Now, UIL 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A volleyball teams join the party in kicking off the 2020-2021 Texas high school athletic schedule. Check out VYPE Austin area small school varsity programs to watch during the 2020 Texas high school volleyball season.
Note: Teams with breakdowns aren't necessarily ranked higher than those without a write-up.
UIL 1A to UIL 4A
Schulenburg: The Lady Horns have contributed to one of the best small school volleyball programs in Texas over the past decade. They won the 2014 UIL 2A state championship and finished as the state runner-up in 2012 and 2013. They also stormed to a 34-12 record and a UIL 3A Region IV Semifinal appearance during the 2019 season, and will remain in the hunt for a deep playoff run in 2020. Libero Julie Guentert, opposite hitter Erica Otto, outside hitter/middle blocker Jordan Sommer and defensive specialist Regan Lux are important returners that will push young teammates to the point that they keep the program's tradition alive this fall.
