So much for being a "newbie."

The Fulshear Chargers' volleyball program, in just its third year of existence at the varsity level, exceeded all expectations (outside of their own) as they came to the UIL Class 4A state tournament and made their mark while, at the same time, making school history.

Coach Sydney Gotcher's Chargers swept a favored Hereford team in three sets (25-20, 25-18, 25-19 ) and grabbed the gold medal for a school that didn't exist five years ago (the school opened in 2016).

Fulshear finishes the season with an amazing 45-4 record while Hereford fell to 35-15 with the loss.

"I don't know if I really knew how good this team was this year," chuckled Gotcher, whose team didn't drop a single set in their six-match playoff run to the state championship. "There were times we'd take the floor and I'd wonder how the girls would handle a four-set or five-set match, yet they've been able to go out and dominate. I'm just as surprised as anyone about their ability to do so well."
