The sports never end in Texas high schools.

One season blends into another. Cross country gave way to football and volleyball. Now basketball is making an appearance as volleyball ended and football is in the final phase with the UIL playoffs taking center stage.

Early reports on the basketball teams are good for Kennedale High School.  The Lady Kats has started the season at 7-1 and the Wildcats are currently 2-0.
