New Oak Ridge volleyball head coach Rachel Croley has the War Eagles poised for a potentially long playoff run.

With a large of amount of coaching turnover, the new coaches brought along a sense of hope in Oak Ridge’s attempt to redeem itself from an early playoff exit last year.

The Lady War Eagles are no stranger to struggles lately, so a clean slate may just be what they needed.

Croley has a tremendous past as a former assistant head coach for the War Eagles cross town rivals, The Woodlands Highlanders.

There, she was under the coaching of Terri Wade where she gained experience to help her in running her own successful volleyball program. She has been to playoffs often and even went on to the State tournament with TWHS.

“It has been very positive,” Croley said of her transition to Oak Ridge. “I love these girls and it’s been great.”

A new environment is tough for everyone, but Croley is ready to take it head on with positivity and teamwork.

Her fresh face is also a ray of light for the girls as well.

“I love her. Even when we’re not doing good she will always be positive and help you,” senior setter Kenzie Arent said.

Let's boil down the Class 6A football reclassification as it relates to the Greater Houston area.

District 21-6A becomes the new power conference with North Shore (back-to-back Class 6A DI state champs), Atascocita (2019 Region III finalist) and West Brook (2018 Class 6A DII state runner up).

The big winners were Deer Park and Channelview, who move to District 22-6A. While it will be tough to schedule for District 13-6A with six teams, it means that only two teams don't make the postseason.

Another interesting note is now Houston represents half of Region II (4 of 8 districts) and all of Region III.

REGION II

District 13-6A -- Are Conroe schools plus Willis.

District 14-6A -- Are the Spring and Aldine schools again. No change there.

District 15-6A -- Are the Klein and Tomball schools. Tomball moves up to Class 6A.

District 16-6A -- An all-Cy Fair district. Cy Falls moves over to replace Tomball Memorial.
