The Lady Highlanders defeated the Montgomery bears at home in three sets (16-25, 14-25, 14-25) Friday night. It was also Senior night, in which they celebrated their eight seniors, Clara Brower, Natasha Zorbas, Natalie Kimmel, Claire Arend, Jackie Lee, Caroline Ristroph, and Manager Bella Martinez. Three of the seniors (Brower, Zorbas, and Lee) graduating early in December to extend their volleyball careers in college.
TWHS Volleyball is practicing for their upcoming season in the 6A division. The team had nine valuable players graduate last year and another valuable sophomore, Julieta Valdes, refrain from playing this season due to health conditions. Although the team is looking strong this year with five of their six seniors (Natasha Zorbas, Clara Brower, Claire Arend, Jackie Lee, Natalie Kimmel) making the Phenom All American Watch List. Zorbas and Brower also were selected for the 2020 All-VYPE Public School Preseason Teams and Brower made the 1st Team Pre-season All-American Max Preps.
Four of the six seniors are extending their volleyball careers: Claire Arend committed to High Point University last month, Jackie Lee committed to Texas State in June, Natasha Zorbas committed to Lafayette in May, and Clara Brower committed to Georgia in 2018. With a total of six new players on the team, we are expecting a different dynamic from the team and are looking forward to their season. The Woodlands defeated Klein Collins in straight sets to start the season last night.
