The word that has been thrown around a lot recently is "normalcy".
How do we get back to it? What will a return to normalcy look like? And on and on. For me, as I sit here and write the What's Inside article for the 2020 VYPE Houston Volleyball Preview Magazine - this is a little return to "normalcy" for me and all of us at VYPE.
Getting back to sports will bring a sense of normalcy to athletes, coaches and parents across the City of Houston! My hope is that seeing the 2020 VYPE Houston Volleyball Preview Magazine arriving in your mailboxes in the next few weeks will bring the beginning of that sense of "normalcy".
What a night it was as the VYPE Awards presented by Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine were held virtually on Sunday.
VYPE inducted its first-ever class of Hall of Fame coaches.
The city of Houston hadn't won a state title in the largest division of volleyball since the Year 2000.
The Woodlands' Leslie Madison led her Highlanders to back-to-back state titles in 2013 and 2014. The city hasn't won a state title in the 6A level since. The 2013 team went 45-0. Madison reached the playoffs 11 times. In a three-year span, which included the state titles, The Woodlands went 121-6. Madison was also a three-time team captain and SMU and was a star at Cy-Fair.
VYPE caught up with recent Hall of Fame inductee Leslie Madison just before the award show.
