Four score in double figures as Cy Fair wraps up 17-5A

Shania and Asia Woods show where Cy Fair is as far champions in District 17-5A

Mathematically, it''s a possibility as I may have jumped ahead of myself in the title however logically, 17-5A is a wrap after Cy Fair defeated Cy Ranch 69-50. At the start of the season, I figured Cy Fair , 25-4 on the season, would be in the hunt for a playoff spot in the most competitive district in the area but to win it outright, let alone go undefeated, is a bet I would have lost.
