The Lady Eagles varsity volleyball team has recently been ranked second in Texas by the Texas Girls Coaches Association. They are now working to make it to the state championship.

“Going into the year, our goal was to make it to state,” head varsity coach Jessica Camp said. 

The team has a total of twelve district games to play until it is determined whether they go to the state championship or not. They need 1,275 points to go to state.

 “That’s our ultimate goal. We’re obviously very excited, and I think we deserve it because we work so hard everyday,”  junior player Elizabeth Watkins said.

The team will know whether or not they go to state by mid to late October. Their last district game will be against Bullard on October 23.

“Every team’s goal is to go to state, but to know that it’s a real possibility for us and to have other people recognize it is such a cool feeling,” senior player Elizabeth Hutchens said. “We are working towards that goal every time we step on the court whether it’s for practice or a game.”

The team as a whole is focused on the number of points needed for them to go to state. The Lady Eagles have the number of points needed for state on the back of their team shirts this year.

“We are kind of rallying around that and trying to stick with the reality that just because we are ranked that high does not mean it’s gonna happen and that we have to keep working hard every day, stay humble, fight, push, and keep getting better,” Camp said.
