GARLAND -- A trailing play by hitter Braylee Flaska said everything Brock needed to know Saturday in the UIL Class 2A state final match with Schulenburg.
Trailing a decoy play down the middle, Flaska hammered home an uncontested kill that set the tone and left little doubt about what would happen in the final match of the season.
When it was over, Brock had secured its first state volleyball championship with a 25-18, 25-20, 25-19 victory at the Curtis Culwell Center.
"That was a game plan we had for the semifinal for playing against a strong outside game," Flaska said. "But we didn't use it until today."
Flaska and title game MVP Amy Henard made the checkoffs as the game progressed and sometimes while the ball was in the air.
"It starts with trust," said Brock coach Keith Guyon, whose team finished 45-3. "They've trusted me all year, so I have to give them that opportunity on the floor. They are smart kids, and it really shows today."
Henard had 11 kills, 16 assists and nine digs against Schulenburg's strong middle hitting game.
Flaska chipped in 13 kills (six in the first set), and 13 assists.
The mix of offensive plays had Schulenburg (35-10) on the run and it led to 24 errors for the match.
Sarah Walker had eight kills and India Connor and Bay Guentert had six each. That was well off Schulenburg's pace in a five-set semifinal victory over White Oak.
"It's been amazing," Henard said. "It's been an honor to be at a school where no one wants to play us. We've been good at everything and now we can add this to."
