READY, SET, SPIKE
By Matt Malatesta
So here we go volleyball fans. It's playoff time where teams' backs are against the wall and it's put up or shut up. VYPE has seen teams get hot and make a run, while other top-ranked regular season teams flame out.
The brackets are out so let's evaluate...

In Region III Matchups
Bellaire faces Katy Taylor -- The Cards are huge up front but don't play great competition. VYPE says Katy Taylor in this one.
Cy Fair vs Hastings -- Cy Fair wins easily, then knocks off Katy Taylor, then Memorial to reach the regional semis.
Cy Falls vs Elsik -- Falls rolls to win easily in first round. Wins in second round but falls to Cy-Fair in third.
Memorial vs Lamar -- Memorial wins this matchup. Carly Freels leads the way. Mustangs go down to Cy Falls in round two.
Clear Lake vs Elkins -- Clear Lake is so balanced and Strasner and Co. Win easily. The Falcons win their second round match before falling to Pearland in regional quarters.
Sterling vs Dobie -- Dobie wins first round before bowing out to Lake.
Pearland vs La Porte -- 3-0 for Pearland, before a tough one against Clear Creek. The Oilers have too much depth for Creek and on to Lake. Pearland takes care of Lake in a classic and will face Cy-Fair in regional semis.
Cinco Ranch vs HCV -- Cinco wins easily. Then falls to Ranch in 2nd Round
MacArthur vs Cy Ranch -- Ranch wins due to competition in district play. Beats Cinco behind good net play.
Cy Woods vs Nimitz -- 45 minutes or less. Woods wins in 3. Then knocks of Seven Lakes before beating little-sister Cy Ranch to get to regional semis.
Westside vs Seven Lakes -- Seven Lakes wins in a squeaker to only get knocked off by Woods.
Dulles vs Brazoswood -- Dulles does more with less than anyone in city. They go three rounds deep.
Alvin vs North Shore -- Alvin wins first round, then falls to Dulles.
Deer Park vs Pasadena Memorial -- Deer Park just has history on their side, and experience.
Travis vs Clear Falls -- Travis knocks off Falls, who is in their first year of Class 5A. Travis beats Deer Park and gets by Dulles to the regional semis.
REGION III SEMI PREDICTION
Cy-Fair vs Pearland
Cy Woods vs Travis
The Woodlands vs Klein -- Too much firepower for The Woodlands as they knock off Klein. Gets by Lake but then falls to Round Rock Westwood.
College Park vs Klein Oak -- CP has one last gasp beating Klein Oak, but falls in the second round.
A&M Consolidated vs Klein Collins -- Consolidated is just too rangy for the Tigers, but get bounced in second round by Westlake
Oak Ridge vs Kingwood -- The Ridge is a year away from making some noise, but Kingwood is too deep for them this go around.
