As the Chief Content Officer for a high school media company, you see it all -- overzealous parents, select coaches pushing their athletes to get publicity and Twitter DMs promoting elementary-age students.

A couple of female athletes come to mind as it relates to VYPE's coverage of middle-schoolers. Barbers Hill's Charli Collier ended up being the No. 2 overall prospect in 2018 and now plays at Texas.

Softballer Jourdyn Campbell exploded on the scene as an eighth-grader. She started her high school career playing at Channelview High School and is now at Kingwood. She's a 5-tool star, who will play for Texas A&M next season.

Could Jorynn Ross be the next girls' basketball superstar in the same vain as the (Neke and Chiney) Ogwumike sisters and Collier?

Ok, let's not get ahead of ourselves, but the 6-foot-1 post has tremendous upside. As she puts up huge numbers at the Harmony School of Excellence, the real question is, where will she play next?

Could it be Kinkaid, Jersey Village, Cy-Fair or another Houston-area power program?

She just picked up the sport a few years ago – soccer has been her first love.

HOUSTON – It was another banner night for Humble ISD on the pitch.

For the third-straight season Kingwood girls soccer is heading to the Regional Semifinals with a 3-1 victory against Deer Park on Friday. Kingwood hasn't reached the Regional Finals since the 2010 season.

District-mate Atascocita moved on to the Regional Semifinals with a penalty kicks victory over Clear Springs. After full time and overtime, the Lady Eagles won the match 4-3 in penalty kicks. This is only the second time in program history Atascocita has reached the Regional Semifinals. The last trip to the fourth round came in the 2017 season.

Atascocita will face Tompkins at 12:30 p.m. and Cinco Ranch will play Kingwood at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12, at Deer Park's Abshier Stadium. The Regional Final between the winners will take place Saturday at 11:30 a.m.

Kingwood Park had the best night of all, sending not just its state semifinalist girls soccer team back to the Regional Tournament but also its boys team.
