The 2020 Texas high school volleyball season will be in full swing starting next week, so it's time for preseason VYPE Austin, Central Texas and Hill Country coverage. Check out area teams to watch and come back later this week for more preseason content.

Big thanks to Pflugerville ISD for allowing VYPE to host its 2020 Austin Preseason Photoshoot at The Pfield, Whataburger for sponsoring our event, all the participating schools, teams and players, and the area coaches that submitted team questionnaires.


Lake Travis: The Cavaliers won 38 matches and advanced to the UIL 6A Region IV Quarterfinal during the 2019 Texas high school volleyball season and will be an area favorite in the same classification during the 2020 campaign. Expect outside hitter and SMU commit Jamison Wheeler to lead a charge that also includes middle hitter Campbell Cook and setter Kiana Reed.

Westlake: The Chaparrals won 34 games during the 2019 season and are motivated to top last year's bi-district finish. Expect a deep playoff run from them in 2020 because of UCLA beach commit Katie Hashman, Tulane commit Genevieve Perry and University of Denver commit Margaret Newton. All three players are in the same senior class as middle blocker Simone Jackson, and junior setter Grey Foster provides additional upperclassmen depth.
