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.

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?
