For Aubrey, who is playing the underdog role this year, it has been 11 years since the Chaparrals last played in the region finals. Last year’s team finished in area play. Two years ago, Kennedale knocked Aubrey out of the area-round before the Kats lost to Sanger in the next round. Kennedale and Aubrey did play each other in the 2018-19 regular season with Aubrey banking a 3-0 sweep of the Lady Kats.

Coming from a competitive district and on a roll …

Aubrey (20-7, 9-4) finished third in District 9-4A, behind Celina (20-5, 11-1) and Melissa (21-10, 10-3) and ahead of Van Alstyne (15-9, 7-5). Aubrey upset fellow district member Melissa in the third round, 3-2, before playing the spoiler role again by defeating #10 Gilmer (25-5, 10-0) Tuesday evening 3-1.

This will be the third team out of District 9-4A that Kennedale has played so far. Kennedale has already defeated Celina (3-0) and Van Alstyne (3-1).
