John Tyler will try to become the fifth D-I team to qualify when it plays in the Rowlett state qualifier tournament Friday morning. Alto is also competing in that SQT, but if the Yellow Jackets qualify, they will play in Division II at state.

The Division I state tournament is July 12-13 at Southwest Williamson County Regional Park in Leander.
