Volleyball State Polls

Congratulations to the Four state tournament qualifiers in each of the five classifications

Notes:

Understanding that this is the first year of 6A classification, which really only affected naming convention as there are still only five volleyball classifications, I recognize the difference but for notes, I somewhat ignore the numbers.

  1.  Class 6A has two defending state champions from a year ago in Amarillo (then 4A) and The Woodlands (then 5A).
  1. Decatur (won 3A) is back in the finals after a win over another defending champion, Bushland (then 2A) in the Class 4A region 1 finals.
  1. Archer City won Class 2A Region I by ousting many time champion Windthorst.
  1. Brock, the 2013 state champion returns by beating regular season district champion and top ranked Glen Rose in the Class 3A Region 2 finals.  Note Brock also beat district third place finisher Peaster giving that district a strong case for strongest in state.
  1. In 6A district runner-up San Antonio Churchill advanced to state by beating Clark.  San Antonio Reagan missed a rematch with Churchill.
  1. Robinson was also second in district in 17-4A that was won by Lorena but Robinson beat Bellville to secure a berth in the final four.
  1. In Class 3A the top four teams going into regional all lost in the regional finals and finish tied for fifth spot in the polls.
  1. Some very familiar names are back: Iola, Brock, Poth, White Oak, Decatur, Lovejoy, Amarillo and The Woodlands.
  1. Couple of teams in state that are not surprising: Dripping Springs, Schulenburg, Shallowater, Aledo and Argyle.
  1. Biggest regional upset is always a bit iffy as any team that gets to regional finals is excellent but the mention this season goes to Lindsay who beat regular season district winner Thrall in the semifinals then beat Milano in the finals.

Finally, in a bit of a trip down memory lane, the state tournament has moved from Burger Center in Austin to Strahan Coliseum in San Marcos to the current location in Garland.

  9t. Mansfield Summit
  9t. Santa Fe
  9t. Waxahachie
  Storyline: Craziness as Dripping Springs took down top ranked Alamo Heights in five sets while multiple time winner Lucas Lovejoy is back.  Aledo looked great during mid-season tournament play while A&M Consolidated is led by Coach Kate Zora who moved over this year from Round Rock Westwood and has invigorated the Tigers.
