Halfway through the regular season, Judson ISD rivals Judson and Wagner continue to set the pace in the KENS5.com area high school rankings.

Judson (4-0) is No. 1 in Class 6A and Wagner (5-0) is atop the Sub-6A rankings.

Most teams in the San Antonio area, including Judson, have open dates this week. Wagner, Somerset, and Boerne are the only ranked teams playing this week.

The Rockets and Thunderbirds both breezed to victories in district play last week. Judson improved to 2-0 in District 26-6A with a 47-7 rout of San Marcos, holding the Rattlers to 147 yards of total offense. Wagner rolled to a 69-0 blowout of Edison in a District 13-5A Division I matchup.

Judson quarterback Mike Chandler II had a breakout game in their win over San Marcos, completing 10 of 17 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for a 20-yard TD.

Wagner, 3-0 in district, has outscored its opponents 180-0 in league play, beating Sam Houston 55-0 and Lanier 56-0 before taking out Edison last week. Formerly in the 6A rankings, the Thunderbirds dropped to the UIL’s second-largest classification in this year’s realignment.

Wagner needs just one more victory to clinch its first winning season since 2012, when it finished 6-5 and ended a run of five consecutive playoff appearances. The Thunderbirds haven’t advanced to the postseason since then.
