Spring Remains a team to Beat in the Postseason
The tea leaves have become much easier to read but it's bit pretty much what we thought it would be. As predicted.
As the season wraps this weekend, Katy is Katy and North Shore is North Shore. Westfield bested Spring early on to cement the district and Ridge Point, The Woodlands and Dickinson rose to the top of their districts.
Surprises so far? How about Jersey Village, Stratford and Clear Falls.
