Something about being the defending state champion – in another class.

The Prosper Eagles, owners of last season’s Class 5A state title after an instant classic win over Leander Rouse, reeled off eight straight wins in the 2018 Adidas John Turner Classic.

Coach Erin Kauffman’s squad beat a taller Flower Mound team, led by first-year head coach Jamie Siegel, in three sets (20-25, 25-15, 25-17) of the Pearland tournament championship on Saturday afternoon.

State MVP returnee Ciera Hecht blasted 19 kills, including 14 in the second and third sets combined, to help the Lady Eagles overcome a first-set loss to the Jaguars.

Prosper senior setter Madi Whitmire was named the tournament MVP, while sophomore Shaylee Shore was named the tourney’s outstanding hitter.

But the Texans SHOULD be able to outscore an anemic Bears offense on Sunday...right?
