SUGAR LAND - Three years ago Seven Lakes made history marching into the Regional Final for the first time ever.
The lone player still on the roster today from that team – Ally Batenhorst.
The Under Armour All-American and her now fellow seniors have gotten the Spartans back within a win of the UIL State Tournament following a 3-0 (25-23, 25-20, 25-22) victory over Pearland Dawson on Monday at Wheeler Fieldhouse.
"Freshman year I was obviously the youngest and I was looking up to a bunch of people," Ally said. "My older sister (Danielle) was a great leader to me and I think now being a senior I think I'm in the same position she was and I learned from her in that way. I'm more of a leader now for the team instead of a follower."
IT’S AN ACE!!!! @7LakesVBnews is heading to the Regional Finals for the first time since 2017. Seven Lakes wins 3-0 (25-23, 25-20, 25-22) to advance. #txhsvb @allybatenhorstt @caseyybate @Mayowaolibale @katyisd @KatyISDAthletic @HTownHSS pic.twitter.com/tODgSl5tz5— vypehouston (@vypehouston) December 1, 2020
