REALIGNMENT BRINGS CHANGES

LINDALE OUT- TEX HIGH IN

The University Interscholastic League held it's biennial realignment and as usual, the Mavericks saw their district change a little.

The UIL started splitting 5A into divisions in 2018; placing smaller 5A schools into Division II, while larger 5A schools align into Division I.

The last two seasons had Marshall against the likes of Nacogdoches, Pine Tree, Hallsville, Jacksonville, Lindale, Whitehouse, and Mount Pleasant in District 9-5A Div II.

Only a minor change was made as Lindale moved out of the district to drop down to 4A, and Texas High moving in from 5A Division I.

The district is in region III, which means playoff matchups will be Vs. Houston and SE Texas area schools.

2020 MAV FOOTBALL SCHEDULE RELEASED

The Mavericks released their 2020 football schedule following realignment, and only two games are different from the previous two seasons.

MARSHALL FINISHES (7-4) FOR THE SEASON

It was a nailbiter for three quarters.

But it was all Huntsville in the final stanza as the Hornets scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth to pull away for the victory at Maverick Stadium.  It was a 5A Division II Region III Bi-District showdown.

Huntsville ended Marshall's season for the second consecutive year.  

The Mavs held a 6-0 lead most of the first half thanks to an 88 yard run by D Williams on the first play from scrimmage.  

Huntsville took a 7-6 lead with 2:04 left before halftime.

The Hornets increased the lead to 14-6 before Marshall pulled within 14-12 with just over 3 mins left in the third quarter.

Then the wheels came off for the Mavs as Huntsville rattled off three scores to take a commanding 35-12 lead.

Marshall's season ends with a record of (7-4).  Huntsville will advance to the Area Round with a record of (8-3).

Thank you Mav Nation for a fun and exciting year!  See you in 2020!  GO MAVS GO!

OFF-SEASON UNDERWAY

The Maverick offseason underway with a bevy of activities.

The weight room as been abuzz since the 2019 football season came to a close back in November as Marshall has already started working on the 2020 season.

Many Mav players are participating in Powerlifting, which has quickly grown into a sport of its own across the state of Texas.

Several players are playing Varsity basketball, where Marshall is challenging for the 16-5A district championship.

Track and Field is expected to see huge numbers this spring for the Mavericks.

Spring Football drills are expected to start in April and will continue into May.  The annual Red and White game will wrap up drills just before the end of the school year.

Marshall is expected to participate in 7 on 7 league play again this summer as well as several State Qualifying Tournaments for the 7 on 7 State Championships in College Station in July.

August will see the return of football as the Mavs will open drills in preparation for the season kickoff Vs. New Caney in Northeast Houston.

The Home opener will be in Week 2 when Marshall hosts Longview.
