District 5A-22 Offensive MVP Ashlyn Svoboda
Welcome to the 2020 volleyball season. What a weird offseason it was for everyone. No club tournaments to travel to, limited training available but what that means is everyone should be fresh for the 2020 campaign.
VYPE previewed 30 public school teams in this year's VYPE Houston Volleyball Preview. Here is one of the Contenders - the Friendswood Mustangs.
The Friendswood Mustangs are a sleeping giant. The southside school sometimes gets overlooked as a state volleyball power, but the 'Stangs reached the Final Four for the 10th time last year. Friendswood fell to Lucas Lovejoy at state, which has made the Mustangs even more hungry for a state title run in 2020. Coach Sarah Paulk is one of the best in the business since she arrived five years ago. The Mustangs are loaded with athletes. Leading the way are District Offensive MVP Ashlyn Svoboda (Northwestern State- commit) and District Newcomer of the Year Alessandra Meoni. They give Friendswood's offense some legit firepower. In the middle is Sarah Sitton, a first-team selection in 2019. Playing all the way around is first-teamer Kate Bueche. If there is a weakness, it would be the uncertainty of the setter position after the graduation of Tori Weatherley.

District 23-6A MVP Alexia Jones
VYPE previewed 30 public school teams in this year's VYPE Houston Volleyball Preview. Here is one of the Contenders - the Pearland Dawson Eagles.
It's hard to believe that Pearland Dawson has yet to punch its ticket to the state Final Four after all of their success over the years. The Eagles have been to the Regional Semis for three consecutive seasons, most recently falling to Ridge Point. The Eagles also reached the 2018 Regional Finals and again fell to the Panthers - one step away from state. Dawson is led by coach Lauren Leth, who says goodbye to 11 seniors from 2019. But she's no stranger to reloading. When Kynnedi Johnson (Baylor) graduated, Leth developed Alexia Jones who would end up as the District MVP last season. Jones is committed to HBU and can dominate with her live arm. Setting up Jones will be junior Kamryn Scroggins, who was a second teamer a year ago. Dawson will battle district newcomers Alvin and Shadow Creek along with Pearland for the district title.
