The winning female team was from Yoakum high school (Kaitlyn Anzualda, Leslie Garcia, Anna Karen Cabello, Desiree Garza); the winning male team, the Attack Squad from West, which included tony navarro, who just signed to play football at Texas Lutheran. Along with Navarro were John Hill, Jason Medellin and Ray Garza.
