2017 Preview Red Oak volleyball saw its astonishing 25-year undefeated run through district play that included three state championships (1992, 1995, 2002) end in 2011 to rival, Waxahachie. After two more years of success followed by back-to-back seasons without a postseason berth, the Lady Hawks returned to the playoffs in 2016 and reached the 30-win plateau (32) for the first time since 2013. Head coach Hope Porter enters 2017 armed with 10 seniors and sights set on a second consecutive playoff run. Her senior-laden club will be able to lean on the experience gained from advancing to 5A Regional Quarterfinals, where they fell to their neighbors to the south for the third time. Porter also enters the season with a shot to reach the 300-win milestone (271-104 record, 72.3-winning percentage). Seniors Emily North, Serena Patterson, and Lilli Ratliff were named captains before the season began. Four Lady Hawks have already committed to four-year universities: Patterson — University of Texas at El Paso, North — Texas A&M — Kingsville, Katie Hess — Grand Canyon University, and Kylie Bryan — Houston Baptist University.
