Head coach Starla Jensen switched up the usual rotation greatly, including designating Leah Camilletti as the libero on the court and putting Emma Samuelson elsewhere. Karmen Christopher and Hannah Walker worked well in new capacities, while others stayed put in their usual roles, such as Charli Earle at setter and Morgan Lawton and Mattie Jo Duzik up front.

Freshman Bailey Lawton also stepped up for some varsity, one of several underclassmen Jensen expects will bring a great deal to the program in the coming years. The final game of the year for the older girls was also a great finale with the Longhorns.

"It was great to be able to finish the day with all five seniors on the court," Jensen said. "This was a good weekend."
