SUGAR LAND - Three years ago Seven Lakes made history marching into the Regional Final for the first time ever.
The lone player still on the roster today from that team – Ally Batenhorst.
The Under Armour All-American and her now fellow seniors have gotten the Spartans back within a win of the UIL State Tournament following a 3-0 (25-23, 25-20, 25-22) victory over Pearland Dawson on Monday at Wheeler Fieldhouse.
"Freshman year I was obviously the youngest and I was looking up to a bunch of people," Ally said. "My older sister (Danielle) was a great leader to me and I think now being a senior I think I'm in the same position she was and I learned from her in that way. I'm more of a leader now for the team instead of a follower."

VYPE Preseason Private School Boy's Basketball: #1 Concordia Lutheran presented by Athlete Training + Health
Could this be the year for Concordia Lutheran?
The Concordia Lutheran Crusaders reached the Regional Tournament last season after winning the TAPPS 6A District 4 title.
Bill Honeck's group is loaded entering the 2020-21 season led by Boise State-signee RJ Keene. The 6-foot-6 swing man was a first-team, all-state selection a year ago and should be even more experienced going into this season. He can get to the rim and is also a solid three-point shooter.
