The 2020 Texas high school volleyball season will be in full swing starting next week, so it's time for preseason VYPE Austin, Central Texas and Hill Country coverage. Check out area teams to watch and come back later this week for more preseason content.
Big thanks to Pflugerville ISD for allowing VYPE to host its 2020 Austin Preseason Photoshoot at The Pfield, Whataburger for sponsoring our event, all the participating schools, teams and players, and the area coaches that submitted team questionnaires.
Lake Travis: The Cavaliers won 38 matches and advanced to the UIL 6A Region IV Quarterfinal during the 2019 Texas high school volleyball season and will be an area favorite in the same classification during the 2020 campaign. Expect outside hitter and SMU commit Jamison Wheeler to lead a charge that also includes middle hitter Campbell Cook and setter Kiana Reed.
Sports are back y'all! It started with the return of pro sports. Now, UIL 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A volleyball teams join the party in kicking off the 2020-2021 Texas high school athletic schedule. Check out VYPE Austin area small school varsity programs to watch during the 2020 Texas high school volleyball season.
Note: Teams with breakdowns aren't necessarily ranked higher than those without a write-up.
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.
