Kiley Smink, Foster Volleyball<img lazy-loadable="true" data-runner-src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDg1Njc2OC9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY2ODEyMzk2MH0.-LWXNs_Yj-9QD2z9P-LKWlBtK5tT81rIJN7cS6l0NMg/img.jpg?width=980" id="21f04" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="d9735e38cf52d91220bf76b16e399210" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" data-width="1200" data-height="1800" /><p>Outside of the Fulshear Chargers, Foster was the second-best volleyball team in the school district. Foster went 14-2 in conference play and was led by Kiley Smink. The senior got is done as the leading hitter for the Falcons and played all the way around. She could also defend.</p>
Cody Jackson, Foster Football<img lazy-loadable="true" data-runner-src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDg1NjgwMS9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYyOTM4NzkwNn0.MN63S0D5V48XH4H9rmSH05Mo6NoX5qbgt9vQsD5gMqo/img.jpg?width=980" id="d36b3" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="9e70a1071c32c92898de73059947dbac" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" data-width="771" data-height="1080" /><p>Foster's Cody Jackson is a future college star and beyond. The Oklahoma-commit, however, was the best player in District 10-5A DI. He was Foster's leading scorer and receiver. The 6-foot-1 wideout is simply unguardable and his best football may be in front of him.</p>
Kellen Stewart, Terry Football<img lazy-loadable="true" data-runner-src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDg1Njc5Ni9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYyNDg4NDQ5OX0.LdD1xQXNrKjdiQx5PqwvGvrXx_UiZs3MqyjbfUCnBY8/img.jpg?width=980" id="c0d94" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="1ac9f0a85e7294ba8f3899858a0676b2" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" data-width="214" data-height="300" /><p>Terry's Kellen Stewart is a dog. The senior running back went off for over 1,300 yards and had 17 scores. He fought for every yard and helped lead the Rangers to the playoff berth under the direction of coach Cornelius Anthony.</p>
Logan Lednicky, George Ranch Volleyball<img lazy-loadable="true" data-runner-src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDg1Njc2Ny9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY0MjQ5OTQwMX0.y96qvyALdxEJZOLHcUxfWIgDxuDKtAoEpzQ0VLVKYDQ/img.jpg?width=980" id="5adce" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="a7eb6d19de0298aa7fe3d584666b678d" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" data-width="1800" data-height="1200" /><p>George Ranch won District 20-6A under the direction of coach Cheyanne Forshee. The Horns' season came to a halt by Memorial in the second-round of the postseason. The best all-around player was junior Logan Lednicky, who was amazing the way around hitting, blocking and digging.</p>
Brielle Warren, Fulshear Volleyball<img lazy-loadable="true" data-runner-src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDg1Njc5NS9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY0MTg3OTc3OX0.0D8FZleqApwiVtTMxsWTI4_Alhwo1mcMORfAwTZ-s0g/img.jpg?width=980" id="e5abe" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="7bc2b3322939b99be3965bb4f1aec53a" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" data-width="700" data-height="700" /><p>Fulshear is loaded with stars like Ava Underwood, Ellie Echter and Alexis Dacosta, but could Brielle Warren be the best of them all? The Purdue-commit is just a junior and has been pounding teams into submission all season.</p>
The school, which has been open for just 11 years, just won its 10th district title a few weeks ago, with the past five years coming in Class 6A. For coach Alicia Dutch, getting to this point of consistency took laying the ground work many years ago.
"We made sure they were groomed through the years to be able to compete on this level," Dutch said. "They have had a tremendous trust in themselves and the leadership that has transitioned during the program. Since 5A and 6A girls programs in Texas are still growing in competition with the 5K compared to other states, coaching and learning how to program practices to fit the needs of the runners each year is a challenge that has taken on very well."
