Seven Lakes Volleyball
Last year was the first time that a Houston-area team won a state championship at the UIL's largest classification for the first time since 2014 with Seven Lakes taking home the Class 6A State Crown.
What was crazy is they played Klein ... another Houston-area squad!
So, which teams have made the Top 20?
1) Seven Lakes Spartans2) Klein Bearkats3) Pearland Dawson Eagles4) George Ranch Longhorns5) Katy Tompkins Falcons6) Deer Park Deer7) Bridgeland Bears8) Katy Tigers9) Grand Oaks Grizzlies 10) Ridge Point Panthers 11) Clear Creek Wildcats 12) The Woodlands Highlanders13) Cinco Ranch Cougars14) College Park Cavaliers15) Cypress Ranch Mustangs16) Kingwood Mustangs17) Cypress Creek Cougars 18) Shadow Creek Sharks19) Klein Cain Hurricanes20) Dobie Longhorns
Christina Mata makes the move over from Pasadena Memorial, where she was for the past eight years, to take over Pearland Dawson. The Eagles reached the Regional Quarterfinals in 2019 and with eight starters returning in 2021 could be in line for a huge year.
Olivia Johnson (Washington) hit .407 last year while Hannah De La Rosa (University of Incarnate Word) is solid defensively in the field. Other players to take note of are Bella Mata and highly-rated recruit Sa'Mya Jones, who is just a freshman and also plays volleyball, basketball, and runs track. Jones is an all-around athlete that can hit for power and can be put anywhere on the field.
Keys to success this year include "focusing on the little things, working together as a unit and appreciate every day we get to get on the field".
