After a few years of turnover inside the volleyball program, Fort Bend Christian Academy has found their program-builder.
Enter Alex Edwards, who played her high school ball at Katy Taylor before taking her game to Oklahoma and then to the University of Houston. The 28-year-old has been an assistant at Houston Christian and Episcopal as well as coaching the 14s and 18s for the Houston Skyline club.
This is her first head coaching job and she has the juice.
"We want to build a brand," she said. "A program that's well-known for success, like a St. Agnes or Concordia Lutheran right now. We want to be the powerhouse in this area because there are so many great players to draw from likes of Fort Bend, Sugar Land, Katy and Fulshear."
This year saw four private school men's basketball teams make a run at a state championship.
In SPC, Houston Christian played for a title and in TAPPS The Woodlands Christian Academy, Westbury Christian and Rosehill Christian all reached title games.
In the end, The Woodlands Christian Academy hoisted the trophy, winning the TAPPS 4A State Championship led by senior Bakari LaStrap, who captured his second title of his career.
