Notes:
The Wildcats will rely on their 9 defensive starters from last years 10-3 Regional playoff team. They will play a tough pre-district schedule beginning at the Alamodome in the Kickoff Classic vs. Port Neches-Groves. Then they take on Corpus Christi Calallen in week #2 and then Corpus Christi Carroll in week #3. The Wildcats also have an interesting matchup in week #5 vs Monterrey Tech Mexico. Expect them to go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season and battle Port Lavaca Calhoun for the district championship. Once in the playoffs they should go to the Regional or Quarterfinal round.
