The EHS girls varsity volleyball team celebrated an incredible opening weekend with a third place finish in the gold division of the Adidas John Turner Classic in Pearland. The Knights captured their pool championship with consecutive sweeps of Shadow Creek, DIckinson, and Kingwood and moved to the quarterfinals with wins over Clear Falls and Georgetown. In Saturday's quarterfinals, the Knights earned a thrilling 2-1 win over Boswell to move to the semifinals. The semifinal match proved to be another thriller as the Knights fell 2-1 to San Antonio Reagan. The team regrouped and defeated Deer Park 2-0 to earn third place in the highly-competitive field.
In addition to the third place finish, Camille Hanna and Cimone Woodard were named to the all-tournament team.
The Knights host College Station Tuesday evening following matches by both the JV White and JV Blue teams. Action begins at 4pm in Alkek Gym.
