The top-ranked Texas public school boys and girls teams won state titles last week to wrap up winter play, but both SIMA FAB 50-ranked Spring No. 1 teams took losses.
Coppell (Texas) boys completed an undefeated season with a 5-1 Texas 6A state title victory, a result that secured the team's ranking as No. 1 in the Texas-North region and Texas state rankings, and No. 2 in the Winter SIMA FAB 50.
[Porter tx-m] (Brownsville, Texas) won the Texas 5A crown in a shootout over Wakeland (Frisco, Texas). Both teams appear bound for national Top 5 finishes.
Meanwhile, Flower Mound (Texas) girls proved that District 6-6A was best, completing its run to a state title after finishing third in the powerhouse league. Highland Park (Texas) placed second in the Texas 6A tournament for the second straight year.

Dalton (Ga.) had its undefeated streak ended at 80 matches with a shootout loss to Riverwood (Ga.) in boys soccer action last week. Despite the setback, Dalton still advances to the playoffs. That result will allow Chattahoochee (Alpharetta, Ga.) to move to No. 1 in the state, region and SIMA FAB 50 spring rankings after spending most of the year at No. 2 in all three rankings.
On the girls side, New Trier (Winnetka, Ill.) reached the Pepsi Showdown final, then lost a weekend contest to St. Charles North (St. Charles, Ill.) while playing without its star player. New Trier falls from No. 1 in the state, region and SIMA FAB 50 rankings. Loyola Academy (Wilmette, Ill.) moves to No. 1 in the state and region rankings, and last year's SIMA FAB 50 spring national champ Tulsa Union (Tulsa, Okla.) appears destine to a return to No. 1 in the SIMA FAB 50 on Tuesday.
