Tough non-district schedule prepared Wylie for district

January 11th, 2019 - The Wylie Bulldogs are getting ready to open their first district game in Class 5A.

This is the first year the Bulldogs are faced with playing a district schedule that includes nothing but Class 5A teams.

To that end, head coach Gregg Ruffin put his team up against some of the best in non-district, and the players feel prepared.

Duncan Bacon said, "It definitely has helped us out a bunch, playing those tough teams has really gotten us to see a lot of different looks from different teams and size, but it's really helped us bond and also just get that chemistry flowing together, so we have a good run in district."

Parker Sanford said, "The tougher teams that we've been playing are a lot different competition than last year and it's preparing us a lot better for our district this year."

Gregg Ruffin said, "We knew district was going to be tough this year, it was going to be different just moving up in size, so we wanted to challenge ourselves in the non-district schedule, and we've done that so hopefully we can put the good things forward and leave some of those bad things behind as we move into the district schedule."

District opens tonight for the Bulldogs. The are in the Metroplex to take Aledo at 7:30.
