They kicked off the season strong by hosting a 13 hour practice on January 30th. Soon after, both teams competed in their first scrimmage of the season that took place on February 6th against Sinton High School and Brackenridge High School. The team is very hopeful for a great season and plans on making it last. On February 23, the Pleasanton Eagles traveled to McCollum High School and faced the McCollum Cowboys for their very first game of the season. After a long fight, the varsity Eagles pulled through with an 8-5 win.
