HOUSTON – Sometimes a ticket being punched to state comes down to just a few inches.

That was the case for Tomball's Rachel Maciejeski.

The then-sophomore cleared 11-feet-6 inches at the Region III-5A Meet, which ended up being four inches short of clinching a spot at state.

"It was heartbreaking getting third," Maciejeski said. "Wanting to be there at state but I've improved a lot this year and so we're hoping for good things."

The improvement has been noticeable this year.

Maciejeski set a new personal record at the Spring Relays on February 16, clearing 12-feet-10 inches, which was her first meet of the year.

Since then, the junior has reset her personal record by clearing 13-feet-4 inches at the Bluebonnet Relays on March 22.

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.
