CYPRESS — With one of the biggest volleyball tournaments in the region complete, Cypress teams have a better idea of where they stand early on in the pre-district season.
We also know whom are the big players from Cypress-Fairbanks ISD’s 12 varsity squads. Three Cypress players earned all-tournament honors. Cy-Ranch’s Michelle Klein, Cy-Fair’s Lauryn Bourne and Langham Creek’s libero Erica Lowery were all named the all-tournament team.
