The Thanksgiving holidays are history. Everyone has returned to school a few pounds heavier from all the turkey and dressing and good desserts. It was a busy Thanksgiving weekend as the Coyotes played in the Regional playoff game at Gatesville Stadium on Friday night. Diehard fans showed up early see the Coyotes play a good Calvert team. The Coyotes season continues to the Quarterfinals Round of the playoffs with a 60-47 win over the Calvert Trojans. Congrats to the varsity team and coaches as they prepare for Oakwood. This is a busy time, as basketball continues for junior high and high school students. Only three weeks of school remain before the first semester ends.
All major stock show entries are due this week. Reminder to all exhibitors: You must be passing all classes at the end of the third six-week grading period which ends on December 19th to be eligible to show animals in the San Saba County Stock Show beginning January 11, 2019. Shawn Dennis commented that cold weather exerts more demands on show animals. Proper shelter and nutrition are important in keeping show animals healthy and growing. Contact Mr. Dennis for assistance as necessary with your show animals.
