Head coach Jon Nordin is expecting a pair of hard-fought District 13-3A contests this week.

They played hosts April 12 to Caddo Mills and 7 p.m. Friday welcome Leonard to town.

“Both teams are fighting for fourth place and beating us would help them each a ton,” Nordin said. “Both games were close the first time, so they believe they can beat us. We’ll get their best shot both nights and will need to make sure they get ours.”
