Three-time defending state champion Mart will once again headline the Class 2A, DII slate as the Panthers (3-0) take on their fourth straight Class 3A team to open the season when they host the Class 3A, DI Whitney Wildcats (1-2).

In the meantime, the Meridian Yellowjackets (2-1) will put their two-game winning streak on the line by visiting undefeated Hubbard (3-0), while the Class 2A, DI’s 10th-ranked Holland Hornets (3-0) will travel to Crawford to take on the undefeated Pirates (3-0).

 And in Class 1A, DI, the third-ranked Jonesboro Eagles (3-0) will try to remain undefeated when they visit the Blum Bobcats (2-0), while the seventh-ranked May Tigers (2-1) play host to the Evant Elks (1-0).
