DALLAS (AP) – Five straight state championships weren’t quite enough to vault Lake Travis High School to the top of the preseason poll in its Class 5A debut.

Lake Travis is second to defending 5A Division I champion Southlake Carroll in The Associated Press preseason Texas high school football poll released Thursday.

The Cavaliers are moving up to the state’s highest classification after winning five straight championships in Class 4A. Lake Travis had one more first-place vote than Carroll but finished 12 points behind in balloting by sports writers and broadcasters who cover Texas high school football.

Stephenville and La Marque, a pair of longtime 4A powers, have the top two spots in 3A after dropping a classification.

Denton Guyer tops the 4A poll two years after losing in a 5A championship game.
