When asked about how he feels about his team this year, Coach Guerra stated, ¨The team is kinda in a rebuilding mode. We lost a lot of players last year, and we have a lot of inexperienced players because they didn’t have a lot of district and regional experience from last year, and the boys’ side were rebuilding because we lost a lot from last year’s team…but we’re getting better and coming along.¨
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, UIL has suspended the season due to social distancing guidelines. However, we are very proud of our teams for all they have accomplished.
