A Look Back
Grapevine made their second-straight appearance at the UIL State finals last season and faced off against a tough and well-decorated Lovejoy team. Although Grapevine did fall to Lovejoy, the team showed nothing but true grit and resiliency on the court. They did not make the championship come easy to the Lady Leopards. Throughout the entirety of last season the Lady Mustangs battled to get back to the state tournament and then on to state. Grapevine showed their resiliency and ability to bounce back stronger after any loss posted to their record.
The team is expecting to see a lot of strong returners in Ava Shankle, Greyson Button, Sydney Engel, Mikayla Ethridge, and more. Although a handful of their stars did graduate in the spring, the Mustangs have a whole slew of leaders ready to fill the shoes and show the underclassmen what Grapevine volleyball has been all about.
What To Expect
Expect the team to come out swinging. They have lost back-to-back state title games to the same team and are on the hunt to get right back to where they have been two seasons in a row. The Lady Mustangs are no stranger to playing big volleyball and facing off against tough opponents. The team gets battle tested throughout the season while they prepare to take on the best of the best in playoffs. Fans can expect to see this group of Lady Mustangs make a deep playoff run.
