2020 Friendswood Volleyball Preview
Welcome to the 2020 volleyball season. What a weird offseason it was for everyone. No club tournaments to travel to, limited training available but what that means is everyone should be fresh for the 2020 campaign.
VYPE previewed 30 public school teams in this year's VYPE Houston Volleyball Preview. Here is one of the Contenders - the Friendswood Mustangs.
The Friendswood Mustangs are a sleeping giant. The southside school sometimes gets overlooked as a state volleyball power, but the 'Stangs reached the Final Four for the 10th time last year. Friendswood fell to Lucas Lovejoy at state, which has made the Mustangs even more hungry for a state title run in 2020. Coach Sarah Paulk is one of the best in the business since she arrived five years ago. The Mustangs are loaded with athletes. Leading the way are District Offensive MVP Ashlyn Svoboda (Northwestern State- commit) and District Newcomer of the Year Alessandra Meoni. They give Friendswood's offense some legit firepower. In the middle is Sarah Sitton, a first-team selection in 2019. Playing all the way around is first-teamer Kate Bueche. If there is a weakness, it would be the uncertainty of the setter position after the graduation of Tori Weatherley.
