Emotion in sports can be a good thing or a bad thing. Teams that can't control their emotions risk losing focus. Photographers love covering passionate teams. Win or lose, pictures full of emotion are just better.

The Clear Falls volleyball team seems to have just the right kind. The Knights celebrate hard throughout the whole match when things are going well, but don't get negative after mistakes. This positive attitude has helped them sweep three straight opponents so far in the 5A playoffs.

Clear Falls coach Lyndsay Hodges and her team celebrate a point during the third set of a regional quarterfinal playoff match against Pearland on Tuesday night November 12, 2013 at the Aldine ISD M.O. Campbell Center in Houston. The Knights swept the Oilers in straight sets (25-18, 25-17, 25-21) to advance to the regional semifinals on Friday.
