The traffic jam on top of the District 30-5A is beginning to reflect on the Alice Echo-News Journal’s High School Football Top 5.

They took sole possession of the lead in the district by beating Victoria West, 41-24, Friday night at home. The Wildcats have Corpus Christi Miller Friday.

Alice has a district game on the road against Corpus Christi Moody.
Gregory-Portland moved into the No. 4 spot. The Wildcats beat the Hornets Friday. Gregory-Portland is 2-1 in 30-5A and 3-2 for the season. The Wildcats have a tough home game Friday against Victoria East.
