Even as Highland Park has transformed itself over the last decade into a perennial state powerhouse in girls soccer, the Lady Scots never had a perfect regular season on their resume.
Notice the past tense. That changed this year. Twenty victories. No losses. No ties.
Obviously, HP would like to keep that zero in the loss column through April 15. Doing so would give the Lady Scots their first state title since 2012.
Their playoff opener is a bi-district matchup against Longview Pine Tree, slated for 6 p.m. Thursday in Royse City. A boys game between the same two teams will follow at 7:30 p.m.
