Tenaha spent almost the entire regular season at the top of the weekly ETSN.fm East Texas Class A/Private polls, and that's where the Tigers will start the 2013 postseason.

Tenaha (8-1), West Sabine (9-0), and Alto (7-3) lead the 1A/private contingent in ETSN.fm's final regular-season poll, which saw Harleton jump back into the rankings at No. 8 following a playoff berth-clinching win against Joaquin.

Colmesneil's district-closing loss to Hull-Daisetta dropped the Cardinals three spots to No. 9, one ahead of Joaquin.
