It’s championship weekend for TAPPS and SPC volleyball, as the state’s top private school squads battle for bragging rights.

Class 6A, 4A and 2A head to Midway High in Waco, while Class 5A, 3A and 1A head to West High for their state tourneys.

The Southwest Preparatory Conference state tourney will be held at The Episcopal School of Dallas.

VYPE Media breaks down the brackets and predicts the winners.


Class 6A

State Semis

Concordia Lutheran vs St. Agnes

Dallas Bishop Lynch vs Plano Prestonwood

PREDICTION: It’s likely coming down to VYPE’s Preseason No. 1 Concordia Lutheran and Plano Prestonwood. The Crusaders have won three state titles since 2009. Pepperdine-commit Isa Zelaya was a sophomore when the ‘Saders won their last state tourney, and she wants more. Brooke Frazier, a Texas A&M-commit, is a talented sophomore with a big game. Unfortunately, Fran Jabbour is out for the rest of the season, but Concordia has that look again.

Class 5A

State Semis

Carrollton Prince of Peace vs Austin St. Michael’s

San Antonio Christian vs Victoria St. Joseph

PREDICTION: Austin St. Michael’s Catholic Academy has run up an impressive 22-4-1 record, and has destroyed the playoff competition, going 6-0 in two matches. Victoria St. Joseph will meet it in the semis, but St. Michael’s will be too much.


Class 4A

State Semis

Lubbock Trinity Christian vs Arlington Grace Prep

Northland Christian vs The Woodlands Christian

PREDICTION: The Woodlands Christian will advance to the state finals, but will it be in a rematch with Lubbock Trinity or Arlington Grace? Lubbock Trinity skunked TWCA in the finals a year ago, but VYPE predicts it will be Arlington Grace this year. TWCA will punch their ticket to a state championship.


Class 3A

State Semis

Midland Classical vs Rockwall Heritage Christian

Round Rock Christian vs New Braunfels Christian

PREDICTION: RR Christian won state a year ago, so will it defend its title? New Braunfels will be a tough out for Round Rock, but it will advance. But, can it get by Midland Classical? Nope. Classical makes it a magical season and captures the title.

Class 2A

State Semis

Lubbock All Saints Episcopal vs Red Oak Ovilla Christian

Austin Waldorf vs Shiner St. Paul

PREDICTION:Lubbock All Saints won state a year ago. Not this time, as Red Oak and Shiner will do battle in the finals. Shiner St. Paul will win gold.

Class 1A

State Semis

Wichita Falls Christ vs Wichita Falls Notre Dame

San Antonio Legacy Christian vs Bellville Faith

PREDICTION: VYPE takes a flier on Bellville Faith to win the whole enchilada.

The Southwest Preparatory Conference will come down to Episcopal vs. everyone else. The Knights are loaded, with the likes of Kathleen Johnson, Sania Petties, Bria and Cimone Woodard, and Trinity Watts. Episcopal won state last season, and will repeat as champs.
