A YEAR AFTER REACHING THE TAPPS 4A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, 11TH-YEAR COACH AUDRA MAY FOUND HERSELF ONCE AGAIN STANDING ON THE SIDELINES WATCHING HER TEAM BATTLE FOR THE CROWN AGAIN IN 2022.
Legacy Prep ran through Veritas Academy (58-20), St.Thomas Episcopal (61-47) and then Lutheran High School (49-41) to reach the title game in March.
In the end, the Lions fell short to Lubbock ChristianSchool to finish as the TAPPS4A State Runner-Ups for a second-straight season.
“We were here last year and lost to the same team, so the girls were dead seton coming back here and— if nothing else — giving them a better fight,” said May following the game.“We fought through injuries all year long... I feel like we kind of limped into the finals, but I couldn’t be prouder of how hard they played.
”The Lions finished the year with a 22-11 overall mark.
Legacy Prep was led by senior Maddie Steed’s 15.8points, 4.5 rebounds, 4assists and 5.8 steals per game this season. Younger sister Molly Steed, just a sophomore, averaged 9.5 points, 8.9 rebounds and 3.8 steals per game.
Junior Georgia Freeman averaged 8.8 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4 blocks, senior Mary Wittmer averaged 7.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3 assists and MK Kloesel chipped in 7.1 points and 2.7 rebounds per game to help pace the Lions’ offense.
“Mary is like the team mom,” May said. “She’s the general of the offense. She has grown so much in the last few years that she has been here. I’m really going to miss her. She’s also a great baker.”
As May took a second to look back on the season, the veteran coach said her favorite memory of the year was seeing the freshmen on the squad develop.
“They’re not afraid, and I love that about them,” she said. “They’re fearless. They are fun to watch.”

Duncanville has been inches away from a state title for years now and this season they are determined to shut down anyone who stands between them and hoisting that trophy in December. VYPE DFW takes a look at what fans can expect from the Panthers as they prepare to head into the Fall 2022 Texas High School Football season.

A Look Back
Duncanville had a phenomenal season last year. The team finished at the top of their district with a 7-0 district record (13-2 overall) while holding their opponents to a combined 182 points (scoring 711 of their own). After an opening season loss to the Nationally Ranked No. 1 Mater Dei, Duncanville quickly adjusted and refused to let anyone else tear them down during regular season play. Blanking three opponents and holding six others to less than 10 points a game, the Panthers powered their way to the state title game before losing 17-0 in heartbreaking fashion during a state title rematch against North Shore.
With solid returners expected to make big waves in the upcoming season, the Panthers should have no trouble working their way to playoffs again. With Lontrell Turner, Davoderick Roberts, Javion Holiday, William Carrigan, Jameir Willis, and more needing to have big seasons to fill some pretty big cleats on the Panthers' squad, there's no doubt that the coaches will get everything aligned during summer workouts.
What To Expect
Big moves. Big plays. Big tackles. Big offense. Big football. It's the only way Duncanville knows how to play. Expect the team to come into the season like a freight train- hungry for another redemption shot at a state title. The team can be expected to steam roll their way through their regular season before shutting down playoff opponents- ending up back on the biggest stage in Texas High School Football.
