COVID case hits Sabinal athletics


     Medina -- The Sabinal Lady Jackets got the 2020-21 season off to a good start on Tuesday, Nov. 17, with a 38-26  road win over the Medina Lady Bobcats.

     Down one point after a quarter, the Lady Jackets began to pull away in the second. Jonnie Mae Rodriguez led Sabinal with 21 points in the win.

     In a season-opening home romp on that same date, Nov. 17, the Sabinal boys’ basketball team dismantled 3A Poteet, 78-18.

Games which had been scheduled for Friday against Leakey were canceled, because of Leakey’s continued run in the 1A football playoffs.

     COVID case reported

    After that date, and for all games through next Friday, Dec. 4, all Sabinal ISD athletic activities have been called off, due to a positive COVID case within the athletic program. This includes a Monday, Nov. 23 girls’ game with Utopia, Tuesday, Nov. 24 games with Knippa for both the boys and girls, and the next games on the schedule, Friday, Dec. 4 at D’Hanis.
