Top teams get ready to square off Tuesday
It's the only meeting between the 17-5A front-runners due to zone scheduling, and what a way to wrap up district play with two teams that have been at the top of the standings throughout the league race.
Cy Falls continues to be ranked No. 1 in the state among Class 5A schools, and Cy Woods would love to disrupt that impressive run heading into the postseason, and no matter what happens, both teams will advance into the Region III bracket.
