Notes:
The Titans were district champions in their first season after splitting Victoria Memorial up into two 4A schools. Along with winning district they won their most important game vs. Victoria West 48-21. With only 22 returning lettermen it will be hard to go undefeated in district play again but coach Finley may just find a way.
