I was surprised that was Allen's first state title. With 4000 kids to pull from you would think they would be a power house every year.

I like Allen too!

I second that! Congratulations to Allen!

I have always thought that Allen was a very nice city/suburb and it definitely has a lot going for it!

I always liked Allen because even as the area grew by leaps and bounds it kept its charm and small town feel.

Ya keeping it to just one high school(although it is huge and very crowded) has really helped keep the small town feel.
