Instant analysis of the 4A district


How will Lovejoy fare next year in the 4A district? The Red Ledger has condensed the accomplishments of the competition, for easy analysis of how tough the district will be.

McKinney North-

Since McKinney North’s establishment in 2000, the athletic program has acquired a state championship in soccer and individually, Samantha Means, not only placed first in the girl’s state cross-country race, but also set the Texas time record. Last year, the football team made the playoffs for the first time in 5 years.


In 2008, Wylie’s football team lost in the state championship game, and in 2010 in the semi-final game. The Leopard volleyball team has defeated the volleyball team previous years, and their volleyball team has not acquired much playoff experience. The softball team completed last year with a winning record, but the baseball and basketball teams failed to do so.

Wylie East-

Established in 2007, Wylie East is similar to LHS; in reference to how neither school has much experience. The football team made it to the playoffs once, in 2010, but lost in the first round.  The rest of their athletic teams have not had many winning seasons and therefore minimal playoff experience.


The Denison football team finished a combined 5-15 the last two years. The basketball team has begun the season 2-24 and softball finished the past season 6-7. Volleyball, even less impressively, finished their season 1-13.


The Greenville football team didn’t win a single game in the last two years, and the volleyball hasn’t had a winning season in at least the past five years. The softball team finished last year winning 83% of their games, but other than that their athletic teams have struggled to have winning seasons.

Royse City-

Royse City finished the season 7-25 the past three years. Volleyball finished the year 27-10, losing in the second playoff game. They made the playoffs the year before that, too. The baseball team finished last year 8-17 and basketball finished 15-19.


The Sherman football team finished last season 10-4, but lost in the quarterfinals. The baseball team finished 24-14, but lost first round in the playoffs. The volleyball team and the basketball team have records way below the .500 mark.

About the Contributor
Samantha Wendt, Managing Editor
Initially, the legendary snack cabinet and promise of courtside Mavericks tickets lured Senior Samantha Wendt to the newspaper class. Wendt enjoys experimenting with dessert recipes, and sometimes spends upwards of 6 hours making a decadent dessert. Even more than food, Wendt worships the Dallas Mavericks. She idolizes NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki, and knows every single statistic and happening within the Mavericks organization. In the 1st grade Wendt alternated between studying the biographies of the first 42 US Presidents and learning Russian. In 4th grade, she progressed to mapping out the rest of her life; she decided to travel to every single country in the world for a year after college, become a spy for the President, take a bullet in the leg for the President which would led to her subsequent two-term election, and become a college professor until she dies. Now, Wendt has made her life plan more achievable, and aspires to join the FBI.
