Despite missing their star setter, Round Rock’s volleyball team rolled to the Fraulein Volleyfest title this past weekend in New Braunfels, defeating A&M Consolidated 25-22, 25-23 in the final.
The Dragons (13-4) won eight of nine matches while topping the Gold Division field. Lauren Taft, a 5-foot-10-inch senior, recorded 15 kills in the final for the Dragons, who remained without senior setter Stephanie Aiple, a Texas A&M recruit. Sierra Moses and Hannah Vaughn have filled in capably for Aiple, who underwent back surgery in July.
