District could be tougher road to state

District 3A-6 has three teams moving up from Class 2A and one school coming down from Class 4A. The district has several tough teams.

Metro Christian and Sequoyah-Claremore both made the playoffs last year, with Claremore making it to the state semifinals before losing to eventual champion Cascia Hall.

Sequoyah-Tahlequah and Verdigris were in the Class 2A playoffs last year, with Verdigris advancing to the quarterfinals before being defeated by Millwood.

With the teams having to face each other week in and week out, there aren't any guaranteed wins in the district.

And with Class 3A being bumped up to 57 schools instead of 32 like last year, the road to the championship just got a little longer.

Metro Christian looking for another division title

Last season, Metro Christian Academy went undefeated in District 3A-4 and entered the playoffs 10-0, only to be knocked out in the first round.

The Patriots return four starters on offense and five on defense.
