“I'm very proud of this team. From the start, another district title was the goal we talked about,” said Roy Smith, Cy-Fair head coach. “I think four different teams in our district won a tournament this year, so winning district was tough. Cole and Jake are veteran players who handled the windy conditions well, and the guys came through. They've been a lot of fun to be around this year and I'm looking forward to getting back to Eagle Pointe. We've competed there well before, and I think we will again.”
