Preseason practices are officially underway at Tiger Stadium as Dripping Springs prepares for its Aug. 30 opener against Kerrville Tivy.
Dripping Springs will look to make a return to the playoffs after finishing 8-3 in 2018 and notching the program’s third straight trip to the postseason.
The Tigers will also vie for an unprecedented fourth-straight district title in a row, either shared or outright. Last season, the Tigers finished in a three-way tie with Seguin and LBJ at 6-1 in district play. The Tigers will once again compete in District 12-5A, Division I which also includes Austin Northeast (formerly Reagan), Navarro (formerly Lanier), Travis, Crockett and McCallum.
The Tigers are slated to return several key cogs including Jacob Cox, Cameron O’Banan and Zach Tjelmeland.
Next week, we take a deeper dive into the Tiger program and who will be on the field when the season kicks off later this month.
