JV Red went 3-1 with a hard fought victory over an Australian team, but also a sluggish loss to Decatur. Varsity opened the tournament against the #1 team in the state with the opportunity to move up in the rankings.

After that Ponder marched through the tournament, with blowout victories over North Lamar, Weatherford, and Azle to get them into the championship. Ponder got set to take on an athletic Saginaw team in the championship. It was a seesaw game all the way to the finish and eventually headed into overtime.
