The Mexia 7-on-7 football team had a pretty good outing, being their first trip ever to the Texas State 7-on-7 Championship held July 11-12 in Leander.

Mexia entered pool play on Thursday, playing three games against Houston Episcopal, Brownwood and Anna.

They ended up falling to Houston Episcopal, 48-12, then lost to Brownwood, 33-12, but came back in their final game of the day, defeating Anna, 37-25 which put them in the No. 3 slot and earned them a spot in the consolation round on Friday.

Mexia played Boyd in the first round of consolation and ended up on top 14-7 at the end of that game to continue their advance in the bracket.
