With just one month left in the UIL high school soccer season, several teams in the Fort Worth area have captured the state’s attention.
There are still three months left in the season as the team moves one step closer to a state title in Georgetown in April.
What is the story of the area after the first month of the season?
Back to back with the South Lake Carroll girl?
If you didn’t think Carroll could come out on top last season when he won the Class 6A State Championship, you’d be wrong.
No. 1 in the Fort Worth area’s Class 6A ranking, the Dragons are 11-0, leading the team 72-3.
Carroll has already recorded eight shutouts.
Carroll has scored at least eight goals in his last five games, including a 10-0 win over League City Clear Springs in the Governor’s Cup in Georgetown. The Dragons went 3-0 by a 26-2 margin at Georgetown, the same place they won the state title in April.
The Dragons have a top-ranked area player in North Carolina Junior Kennedy Fuller, who scored three goals in last season’s championship game against Rockwall.
Fuller had 26 goals and 15 assists as a freshman and was reclassified into the 2024 class and was District MVP, State Champion MVP and All Area MVP. She has 23 goals and 16 assists in 11 games this season.
Sophomores Zoe Matthews and Hannah Jordan combined for 13 goals and 18 assists.
Kamdin, Fuller’s freshman sister, has eight goals and three assists.
Carroll has 7 in the top 25 and 5 in the top 7 (Kennedy Fuller 1, Matthews 3, Jordan 4, Kenji Tufts 6, Olivia Geller 7, Kamdin Fuller 15, Abbie Mills 20).
Can the Fort Worth ISD team return to the state?
The Diamond Hill-Jarvis youth soccer team played a state championship game in Class 4A in 2021 but lost to Boerne as the Eagles finished second.
It was the first time that any FWISD football team had advanced to the quarterfinals for both men and women.
Fort Worth continued its football success as Trimble Tech reached the Class 5A state tournament last season, falling short of Frisco Wakeland.
Can FWISD win three straight titles?
Can they finally get over the hump and win the state championship?
With the Bulldogs going 1-6-1, Tech had trouble throughout the tournament season. Three other men’s teams, Arlington Heights (7-0-2), Wyatt (7-0-2) and North Side (5-0-2) are yet to lose a game.
DHJ is the new No. 1 Fort Worth area team.
The Eagles are 11-1, leading the team 36-11. He has three players in the top 10 of the Star-Telegram Top 25.
Don’t forget TAPPS
The TAPPS football team has been playing for over a month as the season started before the UIL.
Last season, three teams made it to the state competition: the Nolan Catholic and Collieville Covenant men’s teams and the Grapevine Face women’s teams. Covenant won the D3 title and Faith won the D2 title. This is the Lions’ fourth straight state champion.
Will any of them come back?
Face is 7-4, Covenant is 8-1.
Faith is clearly a Division 2 elite, so it would be a surprise if the Lyons didn’t return to the states. With the Cougars only graduating one championship team senior, Covenant should be a favorite in D3.
Nolan enters week 11-7-4.
Vikings should deep run again with an experienced group. In total he graduated with 3 starters and his 5 seniors.
still no loss
Fort Worth area teams undefeated after 3 weeks of UIL season Men: Arlington Heights (7-0-2), Wyatt (7-0-2), North Side (5-0-2) Women: Carroll ( 11-0), Keller (8-0), Mansfield (5-0), Birdville (10-0-1), Burleson Centennial (6-0), Decatur (4-0) and Godley (4-0).
Mansfield and Keller competed in regional competitions last season.
move class up
Crowley and Mansfield Legacy have moved up to Class 6A, while Argyle and Midlothian Heritage have moved up to Class 5A. Three weeks later, both Crowley teams had a winning record. 5-3-1 for boys and 5-4 for girls.
Legacy teams have struggled without winning.
The Argyle Girls made it to the 4A Region 1 Finals and performed well in the 5A. The Eagles he’s 7-1-2. Men are 5 to 2.
Both Heritage teams reached the regional tournament. The girls were runners-up in class 4A. 5-4-2 for the girls and 4-4-3 for the boys.
