When Atascocita coach David Martinez started putting together his team’s schedule for the 2015-2016 season, the fourth-year coach knew they needed to step up competition in non-district play.

Being in the highly competitive District 16-6A, Martinez knew they needed to get tested early before starting district play on January 2.

“We beefed up the preseason schedule against some really good competition,” Martinez said. “We want to play the best teams out there and see where we fall.”

In the non-district slate for Atascocita, the Eagles travel to four tournaments; the McDonald’s Texas Invitational, Phillips 66 Katy Classic, St. Paul Showcase and finally the Neosho Holiday Classic. click here for complete story
