HOUSTON – With 0.82 seconds remaining on the clock, a 10-point lead in hand, Veronica Johnson turned towards her bench and walked down it fist-bumping every coach and player along the way.

Johnson could finally breath.

The 47-34 victory against rival-Summer Creek on Tuesday locked up the program's second-straight district championship and 32nd-straight district victory.

"This is awesome," Johnson said. "For this to be year four and for this senior class to be year four. They remind me all the time I'm a senior with them. It's been fun. These girls have never backed down or shied away from anything I was trying to do.

"This group of seniors they talk about the legacy they want to leave here and they have done just that to leave this legacy."

One of those seniors is University of Incarnate Word signee Brittney Stafford.

Stafford, who has played all four years on varsity at Atascocita, including being a captain since her sophomore campaign, has watched how this program has built up.

"When I arrived it was very difficult," Stafford said. "Sophomore year was more of a learning lesson for all of us. Coach, the team and we just built. We knew sophomore year was our building year. We wanted more. We had a goal in mind that sophomore year to be driven, to work harder, to be that team to do the impossible and make history. My junior year we did that and now our dreams are getting bigger."

The state volleyball playoffs start tonight as area powers prepare for bracket play with hopes of reaching the finals in Garland, Texas.

So, as we are known to do, VYPE is going to boil it down for the fans.

Let's start in Class 6A Region II.

The Woodlands, Klein, Bridgeland and College Park are the Houston headliners coming out of this bracket, however, the 'Kats, Bears and Cavs will have to battle it out in the bottom half of the bracket.

Klein will likely play Bridgeland in Round 2, which could be an epic match-up.

In Class 6A Region III, it's all about Ridge Point and Pearland Dawson, but they would face each other in the Regional Semis. Cinco Ranch could be a spoiler on the top part of the bracket.

The bottom half of the bracket is wide open. Seven Lakes? Cy-Fair? Or Deer Park, maybe?
