Cy-Falls alum leads Longhorns into NCAA Tournament
Cy-Falls graduate Jennifer Doris has helped lead the Texas Longhorns to the NCAA Tournament.
The eighth-ranked Texas volleyball team will make its 27th NCAA Tournament appearance this weekend when it hosts the first and second rounds of the 2010 NCAA Tournament at Gregory Gym.
Doris is a tremendously versatile player. The 6-foot, 5-inch senior is sixth on the team with 174 kills and a 1.78 kill-per-set average.
Doris has two sisters, Ashley, 18, and Cristina, 23.
Doris led her Cy-Falls squad to its first district title in school history in 2004. She owns the school's single-season records for kills (378), block assists (62) and block solos (35). She claimed All-District 17-5A, All-Houston Second-Team, Kingwood ISD All-Tournament Team and Cy-Fair ISD All-Tournament Team honors as a sophomore.
On an international level, Doris teamed with Rachael Adams, Juliann Faucette and Sydney Yogi to lead the U.S. A2 Blue Team to the 2010 U.S.A. Volleyball Open National Championship. She was selected to the 2007 U.S. Women's Junior National Team and represented Team USA at the FIVB U-20 World Championships in Nakhonratchasima, Thailand. Doris teamed with Faucette to help lead the 2006 USA Women's Junior National Team to a gold medal at the NORCECA Continental Women's Junior Championships in Monterrey, Mexico.
Cristina Arenas, a teammate of Doris', was a two-time All-District 15-5A selection at Cy-Woods High School. Arenas led Cy-Woods to a 37-5 record in 2008 and helped the Wildcats reach the regional semifinals and capture a share of the district title.
Texas (23-5, 18-2 Big 12) earned the No. 9 seed in the tournament and the No. 3 seed in the Austin Regional. The Horns will welcome UCLA, American and UT's first-round opponent, UTSA, to Gregory Gym on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3 and 4, as the Horns host for the seventh straight season.
A Northwest Houston native, Doris played her freshman and sophomore years at Cy-Falls before playing exclusively for Willowbrook Club in 2005 and 2006. She was ranked as the No. 3 recruit nationally by PrepVolleyball.com her senior season. The corporate communications major is the daughter of Marina Cadwallder of Northwest Houston's Riata Ranch subdivision.
