Volleyball: HP falls one spot in poll by Scott Farrell Comment (2)
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.

Football: JV Gold smashes Rockwall by Scott Farrell Comment (3)

The JV Gold Scots scored touchdowns on their first two possessions and ran two kickoff returns back for touchdowns in a 60-7 dismantling of Rockwall in their season opener at Highlander Stadium. Jet Tuma ran for two touchdowns and threw for another in the first half, and 10 different players scored for HP.  

The third quarter provided three highlight plays in Anthony Vallera's 89-yard kickoff return to open the second half, Michael Thomas' 52-yard quarterback keeper in the third quarter, and Hayden Greer's 87-yard kickoff return. Parker Van Dyk, one of eight Scots who ran the ball in the game, scored the Scots' final touchdown on a 33-yard run.

The JV Gold's next game is at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday back at Highlander Stadium against Jesuit.

Football: JV Blue wins opener, 22-6 by Scott Farrell Comment (2)

The JV Blue team made up of varsity reserve players beat Everman tonight, 22-6, in their season-opener at Highlander Stadium. Alex Keeton scored on HP's first play from scrimmage on a 34-yard run. Hardy Davis made it 9-0 with a safety after sacking the Everman quarterback in the end zone.

Charles Hubbard caught a nice 8-yard fade pass from Scott Ellerman for a 15-0 lead, and Keeton added a one-yard plunge in the third quarter to account for the Blue's scoring. Sam Hayward kicked two extra-points for the Scots - the other was blocked.

The JV Blue plays at Jesuit next Thursday at 7 p.m.

Volleyball: HP 1-2 in Pearland today by Scott Farrell Comment (1)
HP went 1-2 in pool play matches today in the opening rounds of the Pearland Tournament, but played its two losses about as close as they come. 
Just two days after losing close to Plano West in five sets, the Lady Scots (12-9) fell in their opener, 25-19, 26-24, to Colleyville Heritage. HP came back to sweep Deer Park, 25-17, 25-11, and end a five-match losing streak. And in the final pool play match, playing for a spot in the Gold Division (championship) bracket, HP fell to The Woodlands, 24-26, 30-29, 25-23. The Woodlands is ranked No. 8 in this week's coaches' state poll.
It is worth noting again the competition that HP is playing. Four of the losses during the five-game losing streak that HP endured into this tournament came against teams that either qualified for the Gold Division in Pearland, or are playing matches early Friday to play-into the Gold Division. Plano West is the exception, and they aren't playing in Pearland this weekend.
The Lady Scots play again Friday morning at 11 a.m. against the winner between Midlothian and Jersey Village. Both are Class 5A programs.

Volleyball: HP stays at No. 7 in state by Scott Farrell Comment (2)
It's not whether you lose or not, it's who you lose to that determines most of the state rankings in volleyball. Or so it appears in the latest Texas Girls Coaches Association state poll. HP stayed at No. 7 in this week's poll after a 4-2 finish at the Byron Nelson Classic. The two losses came to No. 3 Magnolia, which debuts in the poll and claims two of HP's five losses this season, and No. 4 Friendswood. 
Austin Lake Travis, which dominated the field at the Nelson Classic, remains the top-ranked team. Richardson Pearce stayed at No. 2 after a strong showing at the Allen Open. Pearce, No. 6 Red Oak (which HP swept to start the season) and HP are the only Region II-4A teams to receive votes this week.
The tough competition doesn't stop for the Lady Scots (11-5), who host Flower Mound Marcus and McKinney Boyd at Highlander Fieldhouse in a double-dual starting at 5 p.m. Tuesday. Marcus is ranked No. 9 in this week's Class 5A state poll.

Volleyball: HP 6th at Nelson tourn. by Scott Farrell Comment (0)

The Lady Scots dropped their last two matches at the Byron Nelson Classic, settling for sixth place in the 24-team field. HP beat Frisco Liberty in the first round this morning, then fell to Friendswood in the quarterfinals. Friendswood, from the Houston area and ranked No. 5 in this week's state poll, also beat HP in the championship bracket last season.

Magnolia beat HP, 25-16, 25-19, in the fifth-place game, their second win over HP in a week. HP also fell to Magnolia in the championship bracket of last week's Duncanville Tournament of Champions.

The Lady Scots' next action is a dual match against McKinney Boyd and Flower Mound Marcus beginning at 5 p.m. Tuesday at the newly revamped Highlander Fieldhouse. The second match will be at 6:30 p.m.
