An unforgettable season comes to an end with a defending State Championship for the girls and State Runner-Up title for the boys of Boerne Champion.
The Chargers came into the UIL 5A race a favorite, but so were a few other teams. Both boys & girls teams went into the day against some tough competition, and they performed exceptionally well.
The school, which has been open for just 11 years, just won its 10th district title a few weeks ago, with the past five years coming in Class 6A. For coach Alicia Dutch, getting to this point of consistency took laying the ground work many years ago.
"We made sure they were groomed through the years to be able to compete on this level," Dutch said. "They have had a tremendous trust in themselves and the leadership that has transitioned during the program. Since 5A and 6A girls programs in Texas are still growing in competition with the 5K compared to other states, coaching and learning how to program practices to fit the needs of the runners each year is a challenge that has taken on very well."

By Andy Tolbert<p>The Pasadena Eagles have struggled this season but one of the lead birds in the nest in big back Michael Lomas. The senior can move piles between the tackles and is fleet of foot when he gets to the second and third levels.</p>

Well QB Luke Giron's best body guard and OL Alex Mateo. Mateo anchors the OL, which propels the run-oriented offense. Mateo and his crew are trying to push the Mavs into the postseason. </p>
Gerard Joseph, Dobie Football<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDc5NzkzMy9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYyMzM4MjYwOH0.fvjpRYyxgFGn6O53XCX-N_2GAItCwcV0FE1Mn1JKUaA/img.jpg?width=980" id="4a6e1" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="1d5358c7690ca4d8f6cf72bcfdbc78d4" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p>Ok, we know how good the Dobie offense is, but what about the defense? The Longhorns have a stud in Gerard Joseph -- a 6-foot-4 defensive end who can get after the QB. Joseph has the length and strength to play at the college level and has already picked up an offer from TSU. </p>

Banks is dangerous when plays break down with his ability to expend plays outside the pocket. The junior still has the Trojans in the mix for a playoff berth. He can play multiple positions. </p>
Natalie Onozie, Dobie Volleyball<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDc5Nzk0My9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYzMzY3MzIyNH0.tcI__bX391ZaZYFtLUm_LQJg_O5v_nTRNm48AkxucdQ/img.jpg?width=980" id="d1182" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="1ee87b281098869f42e75cdd97ebc3fc" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p>Natalie Onozie led the Dobie Longhorns to a second-place finish in District 22-6A this season. Dobie fell in the first round put Onozie returns as the centerpiece next season for the Longhorns. She's a tremendous setter and defensive specialist. </p>
