Julia Faseler has seen it all on the volleyball court.

The Second Baptist School senior has been digging volleyballs at an elite level since middle school. She has seen the speed and power of the Class 6A game when she played varsity at state-ranked Pearland Dawson.

The libero moved to Second Baptist School entering her junior season and hit the ground running.

"I really wanted to get to a Christian-based school where the bible is implemented in what we do on and off the court," she said. "It's been a great experience for me personally. I wouldn't change a thing.

"Coach (Sue) Berg has been amazing," she said. "She's one-of-a-kind and is a tremendous motivator. I love playing for her."

Now a senior, Faseler has taken the baton as a team leader for a young team.

"It's been so fun this season," she said. "I've made so many friends here and have grown really close on the court. I've also learned so much on how to effectively lead, which is a great life skill.

"I've played defense my entire career and I love libero so I can control what we are doing on the back row."

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?
