SUGAR LAND — For Ridge Point, the Region III-6A volleyball championship was won in the semifinal.

The Panthers swept Pearland Dawson 3-0 (25-20, 25-21, 25-18) in Saturday’s regional final at Wheeler Field House to win an intensely competitive region and book a trip to the state tournament next weekend in Garland. But they will tell you the real obstacle came during Friday’s 3-1 semifinal win over George Ranch.

Against the team that had upended it during a heartbreaking five-set loss in the regional semis two years ago, Ridge Point took care of business with an emotional, tough win over the Longhorns, almost making Saturday’s win an afterthought.

“It was such a good feeling,” senior Skylar Fields said of overcoming George Ranch. “We were all hungry for revenge. We play with those girls during club season, and for us to all come together, push and win that match was so big. That just got us really focused tonight and we played our game. Two really good teams, but we just played better.”
