Notes:
The Chaparrals started off slow last year but they did play a pretty tough pre-district schedule with games against Austin Lake Travis, Abilene Cooper and A&M Consolidated. They turned things around in district paly but ran into a tough bi-district game with Round Rock Stony Point. They only return 12 lettermen but their are high expectations for this years team. It will be critical to be ahead of Austin Bowie in the standings. The loser will likely get Stony Point in bi-district play and that would be very tough to win.
