After 38 years in coaching, Memorial coach Beth Gammill will not be patrolling the sideline in 2019. Gammill retired after an illustrious career. Stepping in will be Kaddie Platt, which is a huge get for Spring Branch ISD. Platt was the University of Houston volleyball head coach for six seasons and built Houston Baptist University (HBU) for 17 years.
Platt has to replace superstar Sanaa' Dotson, who is off to Oklahoma, but she has some pieces returning.
Lyla Traylor is the top returning kill artist, followed by Brooke Duncan. Logan LeRoux is the quarterback at setter and had over 550 assists a year ago. The 'Stangs went 14-2, finishing second in District 17-6A. The season came to a screeching halt in the second round as Class 6A State Runner-Up Ridge Point blanked the Mustangs.
With Platt and her college coaching pedigree at the helm, the sky could be the limit in 2019.
After revealing the Private School Rankings and 5A Rankings it is time for VYPE to release its final preseason rankings prior to the start of the 2019 volleyball season.
It's time for the 6A rankings.
Last season, Ridge Point reached the final game of the season. The Panthers do lose Skylar Fields to the University of Texas but do bring back a solid senior class that should help propel them back to state. But who could stand in the way? The Woodlands, Seven Lakes, Pearland Dawson, Cinco Ranch, Deer Park?
We will have to wait and see. But in the mean time check out the VYPE Class 6A Preseason Rankings.
