Notes:
The Tigers are set to make another run at the Championship this year. If it had not been for a miracle play by Pearland, they may have played in it last year. Their closest district game last year was a 21 point victory over Houston Memorial. If Katy goes Division I then a good guess would be a game vs. Euless Trinity or Allen in the championship game.
