After reaching the UIL state semis a year ago, The Woodlands is back at it again on the diamond.

Leading the charge is legendary coach Ron Eastman, who was inducted into the National High School Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame a year ago. The Highlanders have state titles in 2000, 2006 and 2013 and were a two-step away from another last season.

The school has produced the likes of Pittsburgh Pirate opening-day starter Jameson Taillon and MVP candidate Paul Goldschmidt of the St. Louis Cards.

VYPE caught up with Eastman before the Highlanders' game against College Park to pick the brain of one of the country's sharpest baseball minds in our Sweeney Foot and Ankle SpecialistsNorth Houston Team of the Month feature.

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."
