On Thursday, the Dripping Springs Tiger volleyball team begins its quest for a return to Garland and the state tournament when they open practices for the 2019 campaign. The Tigers, led by 10-year head coach Michael Kane, will return several key components from last season’s team that reached the state semifinals. Seniors Avery Kalsu, Mackenzie Murray and Sarah Nading will be leaned upon as the team seeks an eighth straight district championship in a row.
Last season, Dripping Springs cruised to a 14-0 mark in district play and finished the season 35-16.
Dripping Springs opens the 2019 campaign on the road at Westwood Aug. 6, which is then followed by an appearance at the Adidas John Turner Classic tournament in Pearland Aug. 8-10.
The Tigers begin district play Sept. 13 at 6:30 p.m. against Travis High.
A full preview of the Tigers’ upcoming season can be found in next week’s News-Dispatch.
