The 20171-8 school year ends Friday but it’s never too early to take a look ahead at the new school year and a new cycle of sports seasons. Here’s a look at some of the things to look forward to in 2018-19.

National Soccer Hall of Fame

The National Soccer Hall of Fame will make its debut on Oct. 20 at Toyota Stadium. Including a private hall of fame induction ceremony and a concert from Imagine Dragons, once again putting Frisco in the sports spotlight as Toyota Stadium will be a national hot spot for soccer.

New football district

For the 2018-2019 season, Frisco ISD schools with be split into two districts for football only, as the Redhawks will join Centennial, Heritage, Independence, Lone Star, Wakeland, The Colony and Little Elm in Division 1 District 5-5A while the remainder of the Frisco schools will be in Division 2 District 7-5A. This will open the door for more Frisco schools to make the playoffs as there will be eight playoff bids possible for FISD rather than four. All other sports will remain in an all Frisco district (District 9-5A).

New varsity schools

Both Lebanon Trail and Memorial will begin varsity sports play. For Lebanon High, it will be their first year of having juniors on campus, while Memorial will open its doors starting with 9-11th graders allowing the Warriors to begin varsity sports in their first year.

New faces

Known for helping carry the girls’ cross country team to the school’s first UIL state title and making it to state multiple times in track, senior Carrie Fish is moving on to Texas A&M with a scholarship. Hoping to help replace Fish is sophomore Amelia Jauregui who finished 7th at state in 2017.

On the basketball court, junior Zion Richardson will be the main man as senior Zac Watson is taking his talents to UC RIverside. Currently holding scholarship offers from five schools including Boston University, Richardson will be the Redhawks focus as they seek a deep playoff run.  

New turf

Over the summer, the turf on the football field and in the fieldhouse will be replaced for the first time providing athletes with a safer surface.
