The 68 points Lake Highlands scored in Thursday’s shutout over Sunset were the second-most ever scored by the Wildcats and the most in the Class 5A era.
Lake Highlands’ highest point output ever was a 72-0 win over Whitesboro in 1963, when LH was a 2A school.
Since LH advanced to the largest classification in 1968 (which was 4A back then) the largest point total the Wildcats produced was a 66-0 win over A&M Consolidated in the 1997 season opener.
By the way, that record-holding 1963 team was quite a powerhouse. In addition to scoring 72 on Whitesboro, the Wildcats beat Grapevine 64-6, Wilmer-Hutchins 64-6, Kaufman 62-6 and Duncanville 56-8. However, the ’63 team opened with a 36-0 loss to Plano and ended the season with a 40-0 loss to Rockwall in the bi-district playoffs – payback for a 20-12 LH win over Rockwall in the second game of the season. LH moved up to 3A the next year and went 8-2, but didn’t score more than 46 in a game in ’64.
