Written by Bobby Vasquez. Posted in Sports

The Deer Park High School volleyball team rides a five-match winning streak after sweeping South Houston Tuesday night. The 25-10, 25-10, 25-12 victory raises the team's record to 27-6 and 6-2 in 22-5A play. Tyler Jenkins and Terra Peil led the team with eight kills each.
Deer Park's next match is Friday night at the North Campus against archrival La Porte. The Bulldogs handed the Deer one of their two district losses at La Porte last month. In that match, the Deer were quickly set down the first two games before winning the third. They dropped the fourth game and match with a heartbreaking 30-28 loss.

A defensive struggle netted only nine combined points as Deer Park fell to arch rival La Porte, 7-2. This marks the first time in four years the Deer have lost to the Bulldogs.

Senior running back Shawn Oneychi accounted for 107 of Deer Park’s 115 total yards. Quarterback Andrew Story completed only one of 10 pass attempts for minus 5 yards, and one interception.
La Porte got on the board in the first quarter, when quarterback Ryan Williams found Chase Garner for a 54-yard touchdown pass. Deer Park’s defense answered back in a big way, keeping the Bulldogs scoreless the rest of the way. The Deer defense sacked Williams in the endzone just before the end of the first half.
Deer Park’s record is now 3-2 overall, 1-1- in district 22-5A play. They travel to Dobie next week at Pasadena Veteran’s Memorial Stadium.

After dropping two of their first three District 22-5A games, the Deer Park volleyball team is above .500 with a 3-0 sweep of Sam Rayburn. With a 3-2 record in district play (25-6 overall), Head Coach Gay Sabatell never panicked.
"I just told them we're the underdogs now," she said. "We're the ones who have to go out there and chase."
The latest win against Rayburn capped four consecutive matches away from the North Campus. Deer Park has already played 20 matches away from home. Sabatell feels her team has settled in against hostile environments.
