Bridgeland continues its rapid rise.
In its third year of varsity play last season, the Bears won a second-straight district championship and made it past the first round of the playoffs for the first time, and went all the way to the Regional Quarterfinals.
Bridgeland returns three of its top four attackers in junior outside hitter Kennedy Kays (2.6 kills per set), senior outside hitter Mallorie Garner (2.5 kills per set) and senior outside hitter Karrington Kays (1.8 kills per set). Karrington is committed to University of St. Thomas.
Expect junior hitter Olivia Waggoner and senior middle blocker/hitter Emily Marks (Southwestern University-commit) to also provide depth in the attack. They combined to average 3.1 kills per set last season.
The Bears will have to find some defensive help, however, after graduating their top three specialists. Senior defensive specialist Brooke Adams will be asked to contribute in a more prominent role after averaging 2.4 digs per set last season.
The Bears will also need to find a setter to set up the Kays sisters and Garner.
The 2020 UIL 5A and 6A playoffs are in full swing and that continued on Friday night. Check out all the scores from playoff matches from the past couple of days.
We saw one perennial playoff power go down in a five-set thriller, a lot of clean sweeps across the board as area matchups are set for Monday and Tuesday. With next week being the Thanksgiving break for schools, some matches will be played during the day!
