SIX AREA TEAMS are ranked in the Texas Basketball Coaches Association’s preseason polls, which were released on Monday. The action could be most intense in District 24-6A, with three teams ranked among the girls’ 6A top 25.
Clear Springs is ranked fifth overall as coach Pamela Crawford’s Chargers seek to add another district championship while bidding for an eighth straight season of at least 29 wins. Springs finished 32-4 overall in 2015-16, losing to Cypress Ranch, ranked second in the 6A preseason poll, in the Region III finals.
The Chargers’ grip on the 24-6A landscape could be challenged by a Clear Creek team that is ranked 10th in the poll. Coming off a 24-11 record and a trip to the Region III semifinals last season, Wildcats coach Kristi Odom’s team brings back seven players from a squad that finished 11-5 in district play and appears ready to take a bigger step forward.
Both teams will have to pay attention to Clear Falls, which is ranked 18th. The Knights rolled to a 30-10 record last season before losing to Clear Creek in the Region III quarterfinals. Coach Shannon Osbourne’s team has six returning players looking to make a quantum leap in 24-6A.
Defending District 24-3A champion Hitchcock is ranked 15th in the girls’ 3A poll, with ten players coming back from last season’s 37-4 campaign that saw coach Andrew Hubbell’s Bulldogs reach the Region III finals before a two-point loss to Buffalo.
Two boys teams cracked the top 25 in their respective districts. Dickinson, the two-time defending 24-6A champions, are ranked 18th in the poll. Coach Jason Wilson will have a veteran squad returning as the Gators seek to improve from last year’s 27-9 record and a trip to the Region III area round.
New coach Kevin Wilcox will have the 19th ranked team in Class 3A as La Marque will have a host of new faces after David Montano departed this summer. Montano led the Coogs to a pair of trips to the state Final Four and took the program to a 22-16 record last season, falling in the Region III semifinals.
