Last week, the 11-AAA Boys and Girls Preseason Coaches Polls showed exactly where the district’s coaches felt things were headed for the 2018 season.
Brentwood’s boys team and Ravenwood’s girls team earned the top slots in their respective polls.
Franklin’s Reese Glover and Brentwood’s Jack Thurman earned Player of the Year preseason honors for the guys on the All-District Team, while Ravenwood’s Jaz Harmon and Page’s Faith Wilken earned those honors for the girls.
Brentwood earned four first-place votes in its poll for the top, while Franklin received two and Centennial received one.
