Notes:
* Surprised everyone by making it to the Quarterfinals last season in only their 2nd year of varsity play
* May have one of the state best defenses led by 3 All-Staters and 2 other Division I recruits on that side of the ball
* Expect the Chargers to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and fight Pearland for the district title
* If both Katy schools go Division I then Springs may be the best Division II team in the Region
