The Texas High School season is well underway and there have been some teams that are separating themselves from the rest of the pack this season. This series will be highlighting a few of them as everyone marches through their district schedule. Let’s take a closer look at who is standing out for these teams on the rise.
Cornerstone Christian Warriors
Perennial powerhouse Cornerstone Christian is on another tear this season as they are currently 19-1 and have only lost to Mira Costa out of California who has some studs of their own. They don’t belong to any private school division and play an independent schedule that is one of the toughest in the nation year in and year out.and steal the show on offense. is one of the premier pins in her grad class across the entire state. She is virtually unstoppable from any location on the court and can light up a stat book in a hurry. is the best opposite in the 2024 grad class. The Baylor commit is an amazing two-way player who can affect the game in a variety of ways. Oh we aren’t done yet!!! This roster is littered with talent. is a stud with immense power on the pins. Junior is super athletic and jumps very well off of the ground. is an electric attacker on the right side. Dishing the rock are two awesome setters, senior Natalia Jackson and junior . Both are healthy this year and that is not a good sign for opposing teams. They are moving the ball around very well and are both veterans of the sport. Their leadership will be key for this team to continue their winning ways. Senior libero has been stellar in the back row for the Warriors. She leads the team in digs and is a beast out of serve receive. Senior defensive specialist Giselle Ojeda is also doing an amazing job at keeping this squad in system with her passes.
Prestonwood Christian Lions
Out of TAPPS District 1 comes the Lions who are also perennial powerhouses in volleyball. This team is a who’s who of top north Texas volleyball talent. They are explosive and deep across their roster. With Michigan commitdishing the rock, you are always in good hands. She has been one of the top setters in the state since she put on a pair of kneepads. On top of that you have super smooth on the other side of the 6-2 offense. Wow! On the pins you have a three-headed monster in (USC), (Ranked #1 Nationally), and (TCU). In the back row you have and keeping the ball off of the floor. They are two of the best in the business and are going to be a coach’s worst nightmare all season. Both have the experience, footwork, and vision to keep the ball in system for their setters. They should be a lock to the TAPPS state title this season. We are going to love watching this team take care of business this year. Sty tune for more from this super talented team.
McKinney Boyd is putting everyone on notice that they are a team to be reckoned with. They are shooting up the rankings and have an overall record of 17-1 right now. District 5-6A is one of the toughest in the state and after all is said and done, they will be battle tested for the playoffs for sure. In my expert opinion, the one major factor of why they are so talented is the play of senior setter/right side(Ole Miss). She impacts a match in so many ways and her impact can be seen all over the stat sheet. She is second on the team in kills standing at only five foot seven inches tall. She leads the team in assists. Carson is also second on the team in digs and is tied for the most aces from the service line. She probably sets up the net and officiates the match also from the ref stand….this kid does it all. Although she does have some help offensively by junior outside hitter Ale Romo who can rise up well and bring the heat herself. Her off-speed game is stellar also as she finds many ways to score for her squad. Junior Sara Quigley and superstar freshman Olivia Permenter give the team an added boost in firepower on the offensive end. Senior libero Kali Vanderhoof has been astounding in the back row for the Broncos. She leads the team in kills and has been stellar in serve receive also.
