Congratulations to two Texas teams ranked in the Top 25 nationally by MaxPreps.  TGCA Class 6A number one Byron Nelson is ranked fifth nationally while Class 6A number two TGCA ranked The Woodlands is ranked number 21 in the national poll.

Ten longest winning streaks (all classes):

  1. 30 Mission Veteran’s Memorial (5A)
  2. 24 Ridge Point (6A)
  3. 21 El Paso Chapin (5A)
  4. 19 Mexia (4A)
  5. 18 Garland Sachse (6A)
  6. 16 Weatherford (6A)
  7. (tied with 15 listed alphabetically but all tied for seventh place)
    1. 15 Blum (2A)
    2. 15 Colleyville Heritage (5A)
    3. 15 Farmersville (4A)
    4. 15 San Antonio Clark (6A)
    5. 15 The Woodlands (6A).

Longest win streaks by classification:
6A- 24 Ridge Point.
5A- 30 Mission Veteran’s Memorial.
4A- 19 Mexia.
3A- 13 Boyd and Scurry-Rosser.
2A- 15 Blum.

Two reminders, early season tournaments are extremely entertaining and competitive however, each season has a number of teams that are red hot early and struggle with injuries while other teams start slow, in many cases due to injuries and finish stronger.  It is a challenge to keep the two groups straight in terms of who beat who and when.  Your input is very valuable.

Speaking of which, a case in point is out West as Amarillo Highland Park, Plains and Sanford Fritsch beat each other and have net several times, overall the HP team has likely the best collection of results.  Prairiland is another team with an untimely loss (to Commerce) dropping them in the rankings as late losses hurt more than early loses.  Bellville is moving up the polls as the tradition rich Brahmanesses, winners of nine state championship under head coach Susan Brewer are currently in first in 26-4a after beating Caldwell.

In class 3A, the rich got richer and the middle got tested as Boyd (35-4) swept Paradise and Peaster while number two Goliad is 27-5 after beating Aransas Pass and Odem.  Denver City (36-2), Callisburg (36-4), Vanderbilt Industrial (28-3), Hardin (22-3) and Bushland (25-7) each won twice and swept both opponents.  Prairiland is having a strong year but fell to district viral Commerce and fell in the polls.  Traditional Southeast Texas power Poth swept Nixon Smiley and Poth.  Blanco, Lago Vista and Johnson City are fighting it out for district honors as Lago Vista beat Blanco but Blanco is still in first.  Wall beat Sonora who beat Brady while Sabine beat White Oak and Van Alstyne swept Blue Ridge and beat Leonard in five sets.  Ponder swept S&s consolidated and Pilot Point while Brock beat Breckenridge and Tolar while Maypearl beat both Clifton and Whitney.  Friona swept Tulia.

In other action, Holliday swept Childress and City View while Central Heights beat Newton and West Rusk swept. Sabine 3-0, Rivercrest is 29-6 after beating Sulphur Bluff 15, 17, 27-25 and beat Detroit in four sets.  Farmersville swept Caddo Mills and Brackett blasted Comstock.  Schulenburg beat Edna and Hallettsville while Woodville beat Diboll and Hemphill   East Bernard   swept Hitchcock and Scurry-Rosser swept both Rice and Malakoff.
Little River Academy took over first place in district by beating Troy and Lexington while both Clyde and Troup are in first place in district action.  Schulenburg beat Columbus 22-25, 21, 23 and 19.  Sinton won their second straight district title by beating Rockport-Fulton 18, 19, 17. While Beckville swept Carlisle.

Edgewood improved to 26-6 on the season by beating Lone Oak and Grand Saline in straight sets while Sonora swept Brady 6, 13 and 7.  Bronte had a great week beating Sterling City 15, 10, 13 then Miles 13, 22, 18  Houston Fulshear is 34-4 while Coppell is having another great season.  Hardin swept Kirbyville 11, 11, 14.

Garland Sachse has put together a strong season winning 36 of 41 matches and posting an 11-0 district mark. Austin Westlake beat Austin Lake Travis in four sets, 19-25, 25-18, 25-19, 25-22 to take over first place in 25-6A.  Lake Travis had a tough week losing to Buda hays on Tuesday then Westlake Friday night. 

Blanco has a pair of wins over Johnson City but a tough loss to a very strong Lago Vista team last Friday 25-17, 19-25, 25-17, 25-22. 

Rouse, Dripping Springs and Hutto remain as Central Texas district leader sin class 5A while Liberty Hill is eyeing their sixth district title in seven years.  Dripping Springs has not lost a district match in five season.  District 13-6A is coming down to the final matches with the playoff picture wide open as Vandegrift (11-2) leads the district followed by Vista Ridge (10-3), Round Rock (10-4), Westwood (8-5) Cedar ridge (8-5) and McNeil (7-6).

NOTE: I appreciate fans, coaches, players, officials and media providing input as it helps to make the polls more meaningful.  The purpose of the polls is to support girls volleyball and in advance let me say that I have not coaches, do not have a spouse or family member coaching and have no allegiance or favorite schools, so please feel free to comment or criticize.
