HOUSTON – Fuel up the cars and book the hotels because here comes Houston.

Kingwood Park makes return Trip

For the second-straight season, Kingwood Park is heading back to Georgetown.

With a remarkable senior class back in the fold this season, this isn't a surprise that the Panthers reached this round again.

Kingwood Park senior Allie Byrd (North Texas soccer signee) has led the charge for the Panthers, scoring 91 goals in her career now after this weekend. At the Region III-5A Tournament this weekend, Byrd scored an impressive five goals. In the last three matches, the Kingwood Park senior has scored eight times with a pair of hat tricks.

Kingwood Park will try and get past the state semifinal this year, which they fell in last year to eventual champion Frisco Wakeland.
