The 2015 Lady Cardinal Volleyball team has accomplished something only achieved once before in school history: winning an Area Championship. They, along with only the 2008 Cardinal team, have reached the third round.

The Cards were led by Jr. Middle Hitter Maya Evans with 20 kills and 3 blocks. Right-side Sundara Chinn and fellow Middle Travana Matthews each put down 13 and 12 kills respectively. Maya Evans hit an amazing .368, with Outside Jade Robinson hitting .300 on 9 kills.  Sister, Megan Evans, delivered another stellar night distributing the ball; logging 51 assists without a single ball handling error.

Folks, the Cardinals can serve the ball. Ella Hawes and Sundara Chinn dropped 5 and 4 aces respectively on Langham Creek. And they could not have come at a more timely moments. Through 98 sets, Hawes ranks as among Texas’ top servers with a 1.0 aces per set and nearly 19.9 serving ace percentage. Hawes led the team in serve receive with 23, Robinson and Chinn both tallied 19 service receives.

Langham Creek brought their big time air attack; where the Cardinals had to play their very best defense of the season. The Cardinal front line had a difficult time blocking: Maya Evans finished with only 3 blocks. Co-Captains Chinn and Robinson each logged only a pair of blocks. But the defensive backline came through for the Cards.  Five Lady Cardinal collected double digit digs in turning back the very powerful Lobo attack: Chinn (19), Hawes (18), Robinson (15), Maya Evans (14) and Megan Evans (12).

Since 1990, every Bellaire volleyball team has made the playoffs. This 2015 team has matched the deepest playoff run in Bellaire High School history. Come out to the Coleman Coliseum tomorrow night and watch history in the making!
