Athletes to watch:

Softball – Andrea Decareau, P,  class of 2018

Decareau is only a sophomore and is currently a large part of the success that the North Forney softball team has seen. Recently, Decareau was awarded softball player of the week by SportsDayHS, and last year was named top freshman for the district.

Analysis: North Forney is still a fairly new school, and is the newest in next year’s district. Due to the youth of the school, Forney has not seen a ton of success across the athletic program. However, they are on the rise. The softball team has been very successful in the past years, and both basketball teams are coming off winning seasons. Excluding softball, don’t expect North Forney to pose a large threat compared to some other schools in the new district.
