The move from District 30-5A to 61-4A this year certainly seems to have agreed with the Eagles boys and girls soccer teams. After two years of competing against 5A powerhouses such as Sharyland and Donna for the Eagles and Sharyland and Nikki Rowe for the Lady Eagles, both Mission High teams have risen to the top of their respective 4A districts to claim both titles for the maroon and white.
Adding to their accomplishment this season is the Lady Eagles’ perfect 8-0 district record (19-1-1 overall). This is especially rewarding after having come off of back-to-back losing seasons in which Coach Aaron Clemons’ team failed to qualify for the playoffs.
Achieving such a dramatic turnaround in just one year and going undefeated is exactly what Clemons and his girls set out to do.
