Alia Williams is heading to Baton Rouge.

The Kingwood Park senior announced her commitment to LSU via her Twitter account on Thursday.

"I believe the environment and coaching staff at LSU is the best place for me to reach my potential as a well rounded volleyball player," Williams told VYPE. "I look forward to developing my volleyball skills and knowledge with the coaching staff and my teammates in Baton Rouge.

"This is a great opportunity for me. Playing at the next level, especially in the SEC, is a dream that doesn't come true for everyone. I am grateful to be given this opportunity and will continue to work very hard in order to live up to the expectations of my coaches and teammates."

Williams was a part of the historic Kingwood Park volleyball team in 2018 that claimed the Class 5A State Championship, becoming the first-ever Humble ISD volleyball program to win a state title.

This season, Williams has helped guide Kingwood Park to a 19-19 overall record and 9-1 mark in District 20-5A play. Williams has recorded 213 assists, 123 kills, 110 digs, 36 aces and 31 blocks so far.

On making the decision to head to LSU, Williams said it came down to relationships.

"Many factors went into this decision," she said. "However it really boiled down to one main point. Coach Fran has seen me develop from my 15's year up until today. She knows the player I was at age 15 and how hard I've worked to become the player that I am today. I wanted to play for a coach who knew the kind of work ethic I have."

It was a busy weekend in West, Texas as TAPPS put a bow on their 2019-2020 boys and girls basketball seasons.

We will start with the girls and with that The Village School.

This team started as VYPE's preseason No. 1 team and for good reason. They were loaded. The Vikings didn't disappoint this year finishing 37-3 and winning the TAPPS 6A State Championship over Prestonwood Christian.

The Vikings raced out to a 22-12 lead before extending it to 39-20 at the half. The Village School outscored them in every quarter the rest of the way to win big, claiming the 75-48 victory and the title.
