Most vauble Charger

Fulshear sophomore Alexis Dacosta was named the Most Valuable Player of the state championship game on Saturday. The award was presented by UIL Athletic Director Susan Elza (left) and UIL Assistant Athletic Director Brandy Belk (right).

GARLAND — It can be argued that Fulshear could have won a state championship without the addition of sophomore Alexis Dacosta and senior Brooklyn Dacosta.

But there is no question that the Chargers would not have been as dominant without them.

Alexis earned UIL Class 4A state championship match honors after scoring 19 kills and 15 digs.

“It means a lot,” Alexis said. “Especially, after getting MVP at (club team) nationals too.

“It’s big for me because my sister’s here.

“This is my last season with her, so it was a big thing winning state with her, and getting the MVP award is just amazing.”

Brooklyn had 43 assists, five digs, two kills, one ace, and a block.

“I have a lot of trust in our outside hitters,” Brooklyn said. “It’s just about moving the ball around.

“They really know how to execute.”

The Dacosta sisters took the Chargers to another level in their one campaign at Fulshear and were able to extend their time together as teammates through the final Saturday of high school volleyball in Texas.

Brooklyn will be heading off to Hill College in Hillsboro while Alexis has two more years before she joins the Lady Bears at Baylor University.
