Here is a summary of the results of the week.
These two teams took the defending champions right to the edge of defeat in 2013, but one has enough returning talent to do it again, and again.
Only one team in Texas can graduate three strong runners and end up getting better, and this year's edition could be a monster.
One of these teams had the best 5-girl results from track season, plus very low turnover due to graduation, a formula for success.
With only 33 seconds separating their returning 1-5 runners, The Woodlands has the closest pack in the countdown.
An extremely strong track season has propelled a former champion into the conversation for this fall's 6A title race.
Can a team that didn't make the 5A state meet last fall be a contender in 6A? With a budding star and a tight pack, yes.
