“This means a lot,” third-year Chapel Hill head coach Jeff Riordan said. “We’re a young team. We’ve got a great group of seniors, but we’re a young team. Every week of practice and every game is just going to benefit us in the future. The Chapel Hill program is back on the map. We came from ruins and a dead stagnant program. My first year we were 2-8 and suffered through the growing pains and kind of came out of it last year and kind of revived the program, and now we’re just building off the success of last year.”

Chapel Hill will play in the State Semifinals at Frisco’s Star Stadium against LBJ Austin on Saturday, Dec. 11th in hopes of making the State Championship game.
