SAN ANTONIO — Fittingly, the District 26-6A title race has come down to the final week of the regular season.

Preseason favorite Judson, 9-0 overall and 6-0 in district, plays Clemens (8-1, 6-0) for the 26-6A championship Friday night at Rutledge Stadium.

Judson, No. 1 in the KENS5.com Class 6A area rankings, is the league's defending champion and will be seeking to finish a regular season 10-0 for the 11th time in school history. The Rockets finished 12-1 last year after losing to Austin Lake Travis in the 6A Division I state quarterfinals.
