Notes:
The Wildcats made it all the way to the championship game even though they moved up to Class 5A. They only return 7 starters from that team so it will be difficult to duplicate that success. With Southlake Carroll and Coppell in their district, they will be ready once the playoffs start. They get a rematch with Cedar Hill in the Herbstreit classic again this year.
