A dozen East Texas volleyball players were honored with the release of the Texas Girls Coaches Association's all-state teams.

The region had two players on the 3A team, five players on the 2A team, and five players on the 1A squad.

Carthage's Iesha Bryant, who is committed to Tennessee, and Spring Hill's Rachel Riestenberg were selected to the 3A team. Quitman's Allison McKinley, Troup's Josee Ross, and Palestine Westwood's MiKayla Benson joined White Oak's Rebecca Green and Madison Pecot on the 2A all-state roster.

In 1A, Beckville and Cayuga each had two players. Taylor Lindsay and Ivy Rieke represented Beckville, while Danielle Anderson and Cory McCulloch represented Cayuga. Big Sandy's Sabrah Shipman joined those four players on the 1A team.
