HP reached the championship of the Silver Division at last weekend's Pearland Tournament, and the state's coaches noticed. The Lady Scots (16-10) stayed in the Texas Girls Coaches Association's state poll this week, but fell one spot to No. 8. Brenham, previously unranked, entered the poll at No. 5.
The Lady Scots have a tough week ahead, facing Hebron, which is the No. 2-ranked team in Class 5A this week, and Flower Mound Marcus, ranked No. 12 in 5A, in a double-dual on Tuesday. Marcus beat the Lady Scots in five sets in a dual last week. HP plays at Plano East on Friday.
The TGCA published a top 15 for this week's poll. The results:
