For one last time before the summer, coaches at Pleasanton High School got to see their players in person. It was the first time they had seen each other since spring break, when the UIL suspended competition before ultimately cancelling spring sports.

If you’re like me, you’re a night owl. If you’re like me, you’ve been fiending for any kind of live sports during the COVID-19 pandemic. Friday and Saturday would’ve been the state track meet and I would’ve gorged myself on sports that weekend. On Monday night — actually, early Tuesday morning — live sports returned, only half a world away […]

Area student-athletes join the frontline fight against COVID-19


A job for a high schooler means independence. They can save up money to buy a sweet new ride, put money away for college or use the money to restock their wardrobe, among other things.

A chance to reflect

Fowl Play

This whole thing sucks. COVID 19 has taken so much from everyone. From jobs, to normalcy, to lives, everyone has lost something during this pandemic.
