The big question mark for the 2014 Lady Highlander volleyball program was how do you replace an All World setter like Courtney Eckenrode. An argument can be made for the setter position as being THE most important position on the floor because every point that is won is almost all the time initiated by the setter.
So, now that the 2014 Lady Highlanders have achieved their improbable second state championship in a row, one must assume the position was filled by a more than capable athlete. click here for complete story
The Woodlands High School volleyball team won back-to-back state titles, in 2013 and this school year winning the 2014 University Interscholastic League, or UIL, class 6A state championship. The team’s record for 2014 was 40-3, and the Lady Highlanders defeated Clear Falls in the state title game.

The Woodlands volleyball team conquered one obstacle after another on its way to the Class 6A state championship last month.
Magnolia’s Morgan Miller was a first-team Class 5A all-state selection by the Texas Sports Writers Association.
The Woodlands’ Rachel Reed was a second-team choice for the Texas Sports Writers Association’s Class 6A All-State team.

The Lady Highlanders lost seven players from the 45-0 team that won the 5A state championship in 2013. They shrugged off a District 16-6A loss to a talented Oak Ridge squad in October. And they survived a match point in the state semifinals against San Antonio Churchill.
The Woodlands had three players selected to the Texas Sports Writers Association’s Class 6A All-State team and the Lady Highlanders’ coach, Leslie Madison, was chosen as the TSWA Coach of the Year. click here for complete story
The Woodlands volleyball team was sent out with one final hooray as players, coaches, fans, students and the Highlander band gathered to celebrate the team’s Class 6A state championship.
The Lady Highlanders’ stellar season was celebrated on Market Street at a ceremony put on by The Woodlands Township in conjunction with Market Street on Thursday.
“It’s overwhelming the amount of support we get from the community,” The Woodlands coach Leslie Madison said. “It’s awesome to see familiar faces out here and people that we don’t know that support us and the people that we work with – other coaches and teachers who are here. … It means a lot.”
The Woodlands won its second consecutive state title with a four-set win over Clear Falls in Garland. The Lady Highlanders finished with a 41-3 record on the year. click here for complete story
To say it was a successful year for volleyball in Montgomery County would be a vast understatement. With nine schools qualifying for the postseason, the area was overloaded with outstanding players, coaches and teams. But when all was said and done, The Woodlands reigned supreme as state champions for the second consecutive season. Because of that, it comes as no surprise that three of The Courier’s annual superlative awards went to the Lady Highlanders, who won the Class 6A title with a 40-3 record.
