Consol volleyball team advances in playoffs
BRENHAM --- No doubt A&M Consolidated's bi-district volleyball victory over Klein Collins was a tight match. There were differing opinions on how tight.
The Lady Tigers pulled away late in the last two games to defeat Collins
25-15, 23-25, 25-23, 25-19 at Brenham High School on Tuesday night.
Consol (37-7) earned a spot in the Class 5A area round, where the District 14-5A runner-up will face Austin Westlake. The 16-5A champion Lady Chaparrals advanced with a five-game win over Pflugerville.
Collins, the third seed from 13-5A, finished the season at 19-21. Despite the big difference in their records, the teams played on fairly even terms over the last three games. Collins led late in Game 3 and came within a couple of points of putting Consol into a deep hole.
Consol coach Cydryce McMillian was comfortable with the close call, but senior setter Jordyn Slocum found it a bit too snug.
"We needed that," McMillian said. "That was good. That was probably the most competitive first-round match we've had in my five years here.
"We started off very strong and then had a little bit of a lull, but we kept fighting. That's what I wanted to see. Coming from behind in Games 3 and 4 was fantastic."
Game 3 was on the verge of turning into lull-apalooza when Collins pulled even at 23-23. Slocum turned the tide when she made a running, left-handed save for a shot that dropped behind the Collins defense. Hayley Cmajdalka followed with one of her team-high 17 kills to end the game.
Collins was within two points late in the fourth game, but the Lady Tigers took five of the last six points to close the match. Ashlynn Ford dropped in a dink shot for a kill then served an ace to push Consol to match point. Cmajdalka ended it when she connected on a slide play, converting the last of Slocum's 43 assists.
"It was a little too close for me," Slocum said. "I just think it was an off night. We didn't play our best. We have to get back into practice, put it behind us, know that we won and correct the mistakes we made."
Expect Consol to put an emphasis on serving and receiving serve before the Westlake match. The Lady Tigers missed 11 serves against Collins, including five during Game 4 even though Consol wasn't as aggressive on serves. Collins players went for more on their serves and made it difficult for the Lady Tigers to run a smooth offense.
Consol's attackers didn't hit the ball as hard as Collins' top two spikers, but the Lady Tigers had better balance. Senior outside hitter Jessica Wagner delivered 15 kills, including several well-placed touch shots. Ford, a junior, added 11 kills.
"I feel great going forward," McMillian said. "It's not going to be easy. To start off with a team like that shows that we've got to fight, and I thought the girls definitely stepped up to the challenge tonight.
Kristen Stehling, a 6-footer who has committed to SMU, led Collins with 17 kills. Sophomore Tabitha Brown, a 5-10 leaper likely to be a major college signee, added 13 kills.
Brown's jump serves gave Consol fits when she was able to get them into play. She unleashed a hard serve on what proved to be a critical point in the final game. Collins heard an official's whistle and thought Brown had an ace that trimmed the lead to 20-19. However, the point was replayed because the official incorrectly called Consol for a rotation violation. Brown's subsequent serve sailed long, and Collins couldn't recover.
Consol's Hayley Cmajdalka leading Consol into playoffs
By LARRY BOWENlarry.firstname.lastname@example.orgBrazosSports

Hayley Cmajdalka carries a 4.26 grade-point average and wants to go into a math-related field, but there is a simple reason she didn't figure on a college volleyball career four years ago.
Cmajdalka didn't know her growth rate.
As a not-so-athletic freshman, Cmajdalka didn't have the club volleyball experience boasted by many of her A&M Consolidated teammates. Back then, it would have been hard for her to imagine accepting a scholarship offer to play at the University of Connecticut, which she did last weekend.
"Freshman year I was bad," Cmajdalka said. "I really didn't understand the game. I didn't have anybody in my family who had gone through anything at that level, so it's pretty surreal to think that it would happen to me. I don't think I would have believed it when I was a freshman."
Now in her third year on the Consol varsity, Cmajdalka has developed into the leading hitter on a Lady Tigers team looking to make a run in the Class 5A state playoffs. Consol (36-7) will play Klein Collins (19-20) in a bi-district match at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Brenham High School.
Last weekend Cmajdalka visited the UConn campus and committed to sign with the Huskies. The middle blocker also had a scholarship offer from Texas Tech.
What a difference three years have made.
"She has grown tremendously since her freshman year," Consol head coach Cydryce McMillian said. "She is a dynamic player. She's been on fire all year long. She's grown leaps and bounds with what she's doing on the court, even this year."
Cmajdalka, at the receiving end of Jordyn Slocum's sets on hard-to-defend slide plays, probably represents Consol's most reliable attack. Although the 6-foot-2 Cmajdalka can deliver a noisy spike, she is not as boisterous as some top hitters.
"She is very quiet, soft-spoken, although people tell me she talks in class," McMillian said. "One of the things I challenged her with this year was to be more aggressive verbally -- to ask for the ball, to want the ball -- because we definitely want to get the ball in her hands more."
Cmajdalka credits her coach and teammates for helping develop her game. McMillian often praises her team's depth, at times in the past saying competition in practice was tougher than in matches.
"Coach Mac is an amazing coach," Cmajdalka said. "Being able to play against people that were so good, I was able to progress. They brought me up to their level."
After years of dominating Central Texas-based District 12-5A, the Lady Tigers saw their league title streak stopped by The Woodlands this season. Ranked fourth in the state, The Woodlands won 14-5A with a 12-0 record, handing Consol its only two district losses.
"I definitely think we're better prepared being in this district and having to compete every night," McMillian said. "We've been in game situations that we didn't always have in the past four years that kind of prepare you better for the playoffs."
Cmajdalka has spent years preparing to deal with the academic rigors of college. She ranks among the top 8 percent of her senior class at Consol and is thinking about majoring in a math-related field, possibly engineering, business or accounting.
"My family has always told me how important academics are," Cmajdalka said. "I've always understood that you have to do something after volleyball. You can't play volleyball your whole life.
•NOTES -- McMillian won a coin toss for the right to play the bi-district match at Brenham, where the Lady Tigers previously played a warm-up match. Klein Collins coaches wanted to play at Magnolia West. ... Collins finished third in 13-5A with a 12-4 mark, behind Kingwood (16-0) and Klein Oak (13-3). ... The winner will advance to the area round to face either Austin Westlake, the winner of 15-5A, or Pflugerville, which gained the fourth seed from 16-5A when a UIL committee overturned a ruling that forced the school to forfeit five victories for using an ineligible player. Consol defeated both Westlake and Pflugerville earlier this season.

Consol volleyball team beats tough Magnolia in warmup
Posted: Wednesday, October 24, 2012 12:00 am | Updated: 6:36 am, Wed Oct 24, 2012.
By RICHARD CROOMErichard.email@example.com
A&M Consolidated's volleyball team should be plenty warmed up for the playoffs after Tuesday's nondistrict match with Magnolia. The two teams went to a fifth game and then some with the Lady Tigers winning 17-15 in the decisive game after staving off two match points.
"We had a bye week [in the district schedule] as did Magnolia, so we agreed to go ahead and play," A&M Consolidated coach Cydryce McMillian said. "It was quite a warmup. I knew Magnolia would come in and serve us tough and that they had the big outside hitter going to Ohio State, so I wanted to put my team up against something like that. Magnolia does some really good things that I wanted to see at this time in our season."
Consol (35-7) will open the playoffs next week against Klein Collins after a warmup match against Cy-Fair on Friday.
Magnolia (32-10), the District 18-4A champions, held a 14-12 lead in Game 5 but had two hitting errors to square the match at 14.
The teams then traded points with Magnolia saving a match point on a gutsy dump by setter Morgan Miller, but a service error set up a second match point and Ashlynn Ford finished off the match with a kill off a two-player block.
Consol didn't lead the final game until 15-14.
The Lady Tigers appeared as if they were going to make quick work of Magnolia after honoring seniors Jordyn Slocum, Jessi Ball, Jessica Wagner, Maddie Gaines and Hayley Cmajdalka before the match.
The Lady Tigers positioned themselves well defensively and kept Magnolia's 6-foot-2 Kylie Randall from getting going early. The result was a 25-11 first-set victory, with setter Slocum finishing it off by finding a gap in the back corner for a kill.
The Tigers followed it up with a 25-19 victory in the second set. Gaines had one of the key points down the stretch and Consol took advantage of six Magnolia serving errors, including on the final point.
Magnolia bounced back to win 25-14 and 27-25 over the next two sets. Randall played a big part in the third set, serving seven straight points to put Magnolia up 17-10. Kersten Cleveland ended the tight fourth set with an ace.
The Lady Tigers led the fourth set late at 17-13, one point after Jordan Dickson and Kaycey Cermin blocked a Randall kill attempt for a point.
Randall finished with 20 kills, many that found the floor in front of the Tiger back line.
"Our starters came out and did a great job in games 1 and 2," McMillian said. "It's Senior Night and obviously all the girls have put out so much effort I wanted to get the other seniors in and they did a wonderful job. I think it was just a little bit of team chemistry [in games 3 and 4] and it gave Magnolia the momentum and they took it and ran with it, which is what a good team does."
Cmajdalka led the Lady Tigers with 15 kills and two aces. Wagner had 16 digs and 10 kills. Dickson added 15 digs and Slocum totaled 30 assists.
"Overall I was so pleased," said McMillian. "We haven't gone five games in district all season and to go to five and win it at the end by two points is great for our team, great for our confidence, great for our overall conditioning. It was something we needed to see."

Consol sweeps Crosstown Showdown
Posted: Wednesday, October 10, 2012 12:15 am | www.brazossports.com
The A&M Consolidated volleyball team was in a battle at first. After the Lady Tigers got into their system, the fight became a lot more lopsided.
Consol dominated the last half of the Crosstown Showdown match, pulling away to defeat Bryan 26-24, 25-17, 25-10 at Viking Gym on Tuesday night.
The Lady Tigers (31-7, 7-2) bounced back from a loss to fifth-ranked The Woodlands, maintaining their hold on second place in District 14-5A. Consol didn't click consistently during the opening game and both teams were flat for much of Game 2, but the Lady Tigers raised their game a couple of levels while blasting through the third game.
Middle blockers Haley Cmajdalka and Maddie Gaines applied the exclamation marks on Consol's closing stretch of impressive play, combining for nine kills in Game 3 on a series of quick attacks in the middle and slide plays to the right side.
Cmajdalka, who produced a match-high 17 kills, and Consol coach Cydryce McMillian said the spike in kills came from better passing and all-around play.
"It looked like the textbook," McMillian said. "In order to control the tempo of the game you have to be passing well and digging well. I thought in Game 3 we did a much better job of that. And we set ourselves up defensively by serving better."
Last week's loss to The Woodlands all but killed Consol's chance at a district championship, but the Lady Tigers have high hopes for the state playoffs that will begin at the end of October."We have the pieces," McMillian said. "We have the talent. It's just a matter of mentally being prepared every night to play the best we can and doing that with confidence."
The Lady Tigers have more weapons and more depth than Bryan. Gaines demonstrated the difference after entering the match midway through the second game. The senior, who suffered a serious knee injury in her varsity debut two years ago, earned more playing time in Game 3 and then sparked Consol with three kills off quick sets by Jordyn Slocum.
"Maddie did an awesome job," McMillian said. "If I had a game ball I would give it to her tonight because she stepped in and did an amazing job."
Consol had five players with three or four kills apiece, while the Lady Vikings had to rely on two players for the bulk of their offense.
Outside hitter Reagan Boenker led Bryan with 13 kills despite facing a double block on almost every attack. Jessica Pfeffer added six kills.
"I thought we fought well and did some good things," Bryan coach Caroline Simpson said. "We played well."
Most of the Lady Vikings' best moments came during Game 1. Bryan trailed by four points midway through the game, but rallied to take a 21-20 lead. Bryan's dilemma was demonstrated on the penultimate point. Lady Viking libero Brittany Little made a nice dig on a spike by Jessica Wagner, but Consol won the point on a quick combination between Slocum and Kaycey Cermin.
The Lady Vikings (13-15, 2-8) were within 17-14 in Game 2 before Consol pulled away with Cmajdalka fueling the finishing burst.
Consol trailed the third game 7-4 before taking command. The Lady Tigers scored the last 10 points and 13 of the last 14.
Slocum dished out 33 assists for Consol. Jordan Dickson and Wagner led the visitors with 16 digs apiece.
Abby Cullen finished with 21 assists for Bryan, recording 12 during the first game. Little led the Lady Vikings with 16 digs and Pfeffer added eight.
Consol won both subvarsity matches. The JV team took a 25-15, 25-8 victory and the freshmen won 25-22, 20-25, 25-23.

Best of the best hooking up in BV volleyball
Posted: Tuesday, October 2, 2012 12:52 a.m.
Folks in the promotional department at ESPN would have a name for what’s coming up for high school volleyball in the Brazos Valley.
The people who brought us Rivalry Week, Big Monday, Showdown Saturday and Bracket Busters should be able to think of something catchy for what we’ll call a great stretch of matches in what probably is the area’s strongest sport.
Some of the Brazos Valley’s best teams will face crucial matches over the next eight days.
Let’s start with Friday’s District 14-5A showdown with A&M Consolidated hosting The Woodlands, which is ranked fifth in the state and the only team to beat the Lady Tigers in league play. Quirks in the schedule have had Consol playing its biggest matches on Fridays and/or the road so I haven’t seen the Lady Tigers, but it makes sense that playing in a stronger district will help better prepare Consol for the playoffs.
There will be a showdown in District 24-2A on Tuesday when fourth-ranked Centerville plays host to Franklin in a matchup of teams 3-0 in the league. Another interesting pairing will send Somerville to visit 10th-ranked Burton in a rematch of the Class A regional quarterfinal that Burton won last season.
If you’re a local fan who can’t wait until Friday and doesn’t feel like driving out of town, crosstown rivals meet in the private school ranks when red-hot Brazos Christian visits St. Joseph at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Look ahead to next week (we can do it even if the coaches and kids can’t) and there are a couple of enticing matches on Tuesday, with Bryan hosting Consol in the Crosstown Showdown and second-ranked Round Top-Carmine going to Burton.
If those pairings aren’t tasty enough, some of the area programs will be raising money for cancer research during their matches. Consol’s big match on Friday is Dig for a Cure, and there will be free ice cream.
If Consol has been flying under the radar, it hasn’t prevented the Lady Tigers from taking off. Consol is 29-6 overall and 5-1 in district. Consol’s only league loss was a sweep at The Woodlands last month. The Lady Tigers must beat the Lady Highlanders in their 6 p.m. Friday match to prevent The Woodlands from running away with the district.
Consol’s kill leader is Hayley Cmajdalka. Setter Jordyn Slocum, a finalist for homecoming queen last week, leads the team in assists.

Slocum has grown into role with Consol volleyball team
By Larry Bowen
Posted: Thursday, September 13, 2012 12:07 a.m.
A&M Consolidated volleyball player Jordyn Slocum loves being a setter, but it wasn’t love at first sight.
For the position or the sport.
Slocum favored soccer as a kid, eventually giving volleyball a try after being introduced to the sport because her older sister played. Even after she switched to volleyball around the fifth grade, Slocum was a middle blocker.
Consol coaches moved Slocum to setter when she was a freshman. Now? Neither they nor she would have it any other way.
The ex soccer player and former middle blocker has developed into the leader of the Consol attack and one of the top high school players in the Brazos Valley.
“I absolutely hated playing setter at first,” Slocum said. “Gradually I grew into the position. Once I got my confidence, I loved it. It was the best decision they could have made for me.”
The senior is in her second season at the controls of the Lady Tiger offense. Consol, a strong favorite to continue a decade-plus stretch of state playoff appearances, will play host to Bryan at 6 p.m. Friday in the first round of the Crosstown Showdown.
Slocum began her junior season sharing playing time with senior Casey Shomaker as Consol tried a 6-2 style that alternated two setters. Eventually the Lady Tigers went with a 5-1 system and Slocum was chosen to run the show.
This season, Slocum and the 5-1 were easy choices.
“She’s a phenomenal leader,” Consol coach Cydryce McMillian said. “I can’t say enough about her and everything she does.”
The height that made Slocum a hitter in middle school helps her flourish in the 5-1 system. At 5-foot-10, she is tall enough to be a blocker and keep opponents off-balance with surprise attacks.
“[As a blocker] I’ll put her up against some of the best outside hitters out there,” McMillian said.
After Slocum began to learn the position, setter proved a perfect fit. Setters are in the middle of everything, much more so than middle blockers. The offense runs through the setter, and with that role comes responsibility that Slocum savors.
“The thing I like the most about setting is I get to control things, and I’m kind of like a control freak,” Slocum said. “I’m involved in every play, and I love that.”
McMillian admits to being hard on setters. The fact that Slocum thrives under such pressure has helped forge their bond to the point that McMillian said Slocum sometimes finishes the coach’s sentences before she can, even away from the court.
“We’re similar in that we’re super-competitive,” Slocum said. “I think we understand each other and we’re on the same page. We’re very like-minded.”
Slocum has drawn the interest of recruiters from some small schools and McMillian said she is good enough to play at the next level. However, academics will come first when Slocum picks a college.
“I love volleyball and it would be awesome to be able to keep going, but I also want to major in engineering,” Slocum said. “In the long run, that’s what is going to be more important.”
NOTES — Slocum’s mother played on the Consol basketball team that reached the state final in 1986. Her father played football at Texas A&M and now is an assistant coach with the Green Bay Packers. Her grandfather is the winningest football coach in Texas A&M history. … Consol is 25-6 overall and 1-1 in District 14-5A. Bryan is 13-10 and 0-2. Both teams are coming off road losses Tuesday. Consol was swept by eighth-ranked The Woodlands. The Lady Tigers had dominated Central Texas-based 12-5A in recent years, winning 67 of their last 68 district matches.

Bryan, Consol volleyball to open district play -- Eagle Staff Report
*Posted: Friday, September 7, 2012 1:12 a.m.
A&M Consolidated and Bryan will get their first taste of District 14-5A volleyball when league play begins Friday.
The Lady Tigers and Lady Vikings spent the last eight seasons as members of a Central Texas-based district before UIL realignment sent the CrossTown rivals into a league with four Conroe ISD schools and Lufkin.
Consol, which dominated 12-5A for years, is expected to be among the top contenders in the new district, along with The Woodlands.
The new 14-5A includes two programs that won their districts last season, with Consol finishing atop 12-5A and College Park taking 14-5A. College Park had the longest playoff stay, reaching the third round. Consol fell in the second round.
