In late December, the Texas Sports Writers Association released their annual All-State teams, honoring players from across the state for their tremendous 2023 campaigns. For Sachse, senior Favor Anyanwu and junior Kaelynn Sims were each included following a 32-13 season by the Lady Mustangs.
The pair of outside hitters helped lead Sachse to a district title, and a berth to the Regional Semifinals where they ultimately fell to the eventual State Champions from Grand Oaks. It was a tremendous run in which both Anyanwu and Sims shined.
“It was a really great season,” Coach Rikki Jones said. “It didn’t start as well as we hoped. We had some adversity in the beginning before we were able to turn it around at Volleypalooza. That’s when I felt we really came together as a team. The girls were so much fun to coach, and getting to the Regional Semifinal is a big deal. We gave (Grand Oaks) everything we had, but just fell a little short.”
