November 15, 2022

The Dripping Springs High School volleyball team will make their seventh UIL State Tournament appearance this week after defeating Lake Travis 3-2 in the Region IV-6A Championship match on Saturday in San Antonio.

Dripping Springs faces The Woodlands in a state semifinal contest on Friday at 7:00 p.m. at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland. The winner advances to take on either Katy Tompkins or Keller in the championship match on Saturday at 5:00 p.m.

The Tigers are 41-13 on the season, surpassing 40 wins for the sixth time in school history and first since 2019. Dripping Springs captured two state titles in 1994 and a 2015 season that included a school-record 51 wins. The Tigers have made six of their seven state appearances since 2013. 

Dripping Springs defeated Vandegrift (3-2), San Antonio Johnson (3-0), Round Rock (3-0), San Antonio Harlan (3-1) and Lake Travis (3-2) to reach the state tournament in its first year as a 6A school. The Tigers posted a 14-2 record to finish second in District 26-6A play.

The Tigers are led offensively by senior Mackenzie Plante, a University of Tennessee commit, and freshman Henley Anderson, who have both registered over 500 kills this season.
