And then there was one. We’re one week away from the start of the 2005 7-on-7 State Championship, with the final two spots in the 64-team field at stake on Saturday with the final State Qualifying Tournament at Arlington Lamar.

At each of the previous 31, 16-team SQTs held across the Lone Star State since May, the top two finalists gained an automatic bid to the 64-team 7-on-7 State Championship in College Station. Through last weekend, 62 of the 64 slots have been determined (see comprehensive list below).

Below are the 16 Texas high schools committed to compete at the Lamar SQT. Registration starts at 8 AM with pool play kicking off at 9 AM. The championship game is slated for 2 PM.

Notably, Lamar, Granbury, Haltom and Rockwall were all scheduled to participate in Lamar's 16-team SQT, but withdraw last week to allow high schools still looking to qualify for the 7-on-7 State Championship. Mabank also pulled out of Lamar's SQT after qualifying on June 11.

Lamar will also host a 7-on-7 tournament in conjunction with its SQT in a JV division as well as 8th-9th grades and 6th-7th grades.
