Laurence leads Cinco Ranch to state tourney

One volleyball team in the UIL state tournament this week has a Rockdale connection.

Cinco Ranch of Katy (40-6) will play Westlake (38-6) at 7 p.m. Friday in San Marcos. Cinco Ranch is coached by Tammy Laurence, the daughter of Rockdale natives Donnie Laurence and Lynne Tyler Laurence of Kerrville.

"We have been close, but to finally get here is just incredible," Tammy Laurence said. "We have had some talented groups come through our program, but this group of girls work well together and they are focused on winning."

The Lady Cougars have won seven District 17-4A titles in her 10 years there.
