UIL 1A to UIL 4A
Schulenburg: The Lady Horns have contributed to one of the best small school volleyball programs in Texas over the past decade. They won the 2014 UIL 2A state championship and finished as the state runner-up in 2012 and 2013. They also stormed to a 34-12 record and a UIL 3A Region IV Semifinal appearance during the 2019 season, and will remain in the hunt for a deep playoff run in 2020. Libero Julie Guentert, opposite hitter Erica Otto, outside hitter/middle blocker Jordan Sommer and defensive specialist Regan Lux are important returners that will push young teammates to the point that they keep the program's tradition alive this fall.
The 2020 Texas high school volleyball season is right around the corner, so here's the VYPE Austin Preseason Outside Hitter of the Year Poll to start getting you ready for it. Vote for the area's top athletes until Sunday July 19th at 7 p.m.
