VYPE 2022 Volleyball Preview - THE CONTENDERS: The Woodlands Highlanders
The Woodlands, led by Terri Wade, has been to the Regional Tournament for 10-straight years. Yes, you read that right. For a solid decade, the standard at TWHS is reaching at least the fourth round of the playoffs.
In 2021, the Highlanders reached the Regional Finals for the first time since 2017.
Now, can they take the next step and return to the State Tournament for the first time since 2017?
Leading the 41-8 Highlanders a year ago was Claire Dewine (Colgate- commit), who enters her senior season. She led the team with 432 kills, second in assists (687), third in digs (426) and chipped in 76 blocks.
Sophomore Ella Lewis had a nice debut, finishing third on the team with 403 kills. Marjorie Johnson returns after racking up a team-leading 129 blocks.
Olivia Chojnacki returns as the team leader in assists with 717 and chipped in 290 digs. University of Kentucky-commit Molly Tuozzo had 259 digs in 2021.
