Congratulations to Our Student-Athletes for a Great Season F all sports have come to an end, but many Mansfield ISD high schools made school history for how far they were able to go in the competition. Check out an overview of the accomplishments below. Volleyball The Lake Ridge Eagles soared into the fourth round of the playoffs, the furthest the team has ever gone postseason. The season ended in the regional tournament, but the ladies can still tout that they were bi-district, area and regional quarterfinal champions. Cross Country Three MISD student-athletes competed with the best runners in the state after top finishes in the regional meet. Lake Ridge High School’s Taylor Hayes and Summit High School’s Lindsey Claude and Asa Rice ran in the 2016 UIL State Cross Country Meet. Hayes and Rice were also the individual champions in the 10-5A district competition. Personal records were set in the state race, and Rice finished in eighth place. Football Four MISD high school football teams made it to the playoffs: The Legacy Broncos made school history by making it to the fourth round of playoffs. The team finished second in district and eventually ended its postseason run in the state quarterfinals. The Mansfield Tigers clinched another district championship for the second straight year. In the playoffs, the team fell in the third round after winning bi-district and area championships. Although the Lake Ridge Eagles finished fourth in district, the team won a bi- district and area championship before losing in the third round of playoffs. The Timberview Wolves made it to the first round of playoffs, but was unfortunately knocked out of the running. The football team secured a spot in the postseason by finishing third in district. 16 Mansfield School & Family
