Déjà vu for Seven Lakes? If so, Spartans have a lot to look forward to

Things are looking up again for Seven Lakes at just the right time Vype

It’s practically déjà vu for Seven Lakes.

During the preseason non-district slate last year, the Spartans went 11-5. It was a respectable mark, but one that belied the plethora of talent on the roster. Injuries and the lengthy absence of coach Amy Cataline, then on maternity leave, had significant influence; however, Seven Lakes went 17-3 the rest of the way before falling to Hebron in the Class 6A state final.

This year is falling in line similarly.

Heading into the start of District 19-6A play Friday with a showdown against Tompkins, Seven Lakes is 15-12. Injuries and the lengthy absence of sophomore star hitter Ally Batenhorst have contributed; the Spartans have played just one set at full health in 27 matches.

So Seven Lakes is relishing a fresh start, now that the games mean something, and with that comes a full lineup. Batenhorst returned to the Spartans on Tuesday after helping the USA Girls Youth National Team to the gold medal in the NORCECA Girls’ U18 Continental Championships in Honduras. Program stalwarts Natalie Winter and Morgan Janda are fully recovered from nagging injuries.

With news coming down this week regarding the Houston Texans and their alleged role in the Deshaun Watson situation, ProFootballTalk founder and former lawyer Mike Florio shares his thoughts on the Texans being sued by Tony Buzbee and how he sees the legal proceedings playing out.

Also, Florio believes that the outcome of these cases will come down to "legal duty," and the Texans will argue they had no idea what Watson was doing, and it wasn't their responsibility to protect these individuals that have no ties to the organization.

Be sure to check out the video above for a full breakdown from a legal perspective.
