CYPRESS TEXAS — A pair of Cypress volleyball players’ on-the-court efforts are continuing to pay dividends even though their senior seasons have completed.

The Texas Sports Writers Association released its 2018 All-State teams Saturday evening, giving Cy Ranch one last hurrah to an amazing volleyball season.

Michelle Klein and Peyton DeBello earned their spots on the All-State team as honorable mentions at the outside hitter position.

Additionally, District 14-6A rival Tomball Memorial also saw one of its spikers also earn an honorable mention in the outside hitter slot. Karli Rose, who had been one of the team’s poster children last season, earned the honor.
