With the Klein Cain volleyball team going 12 and nine in the regular season with a win percentage of 57.10% and being second in the 6A Region II District 15, the girl’s varsity volleyball made it to the playoff for the first time in school history. The Girls Volleyball played against the Cypress Woods Wildcats for their first playoff match. The Hurricanes upset the Wildcats, winning 3-2, moving them to the second round of playoffs.

“We ended up winning in 5 sets with the final [set score] score was 15-12, which I thought was a really tight game,” said varsity outside hitter Paige Strole. “When that last point finally went on the board, a high rush of adrenaline surged through everyone, and it really hit me that we actually made school history was insane. It’s crazy how far we have come since the beginning of the year!”
