1. Defending champion Blanchard was ranked No. 20 last preseason. Could another sleeper sneak in and win it all this year?


 

It's possible. But it will be even more difficult this year, with more depth at the top of the class.

Kingfisher and Heritage Hall make 3A-3 strong at the top, while Newcastle, Star Spencer and John Marshall will all be improved. The district that looks the scariest on paper is 3A-5.
