Four for four. All four soccer teams from Mission High School (MHS) and the Veterans Memorial High School (VMHS) have finished their District 61-4A schedule and all four teams are heading to the playoffs – boys and girls.
With the old and politically incorrect adage of ladies first in mind, here is a breakdown of how the Lady Eagles and the Lady Patriots finished up in their district race.
For the second year in a row the MHS Lady Eagles soccer team has taken the district title. Last year, they posted a perfect 8-0 record and advanced to the regional quarterfinals, also known as the Elite Eight, where they lost 1-0 to the Jones High School Lady Trojans of Beeville.
This year, Coach Aaron Clemons’ Lady Eagles are 7-1 with their only loss coming at the hands of their cross-town rival VMHS Lady Patriots. Mission outscored their district opponents this season 23-3.
