By Coach Brian Gibson and Coach Erica Urias
Exciting times are upon us here at Van Horn High School. Our coaching staff has been working diligently to make Van Horn a place where teams and athletes throughout West Texas look forward to competing.
After a five-year absence, The Van Horn Memorial Relays are back! Prior to this year, our track facility sustained major facility defects. Fortunately for our community and our students, this year we will resurrect the Memorial Relays in a remarkable fashion, as the first track event held at Eagle Field since the amazing renovations and upgrades.
The Eagle coaching staff and athletes would like to invite the entire community to come out and be a part of this monumental occasion on Feb. 28. We will kick off at 9 a.m. beginning with field events. All running finals will begin after lunch.
A ceremony will precede the running events with a special tribute to those directly affected by the unfortunate tragedy of 1981, (Sonja Carrillo, Julie Gomez, and Gloria Rivera). The 2014 State Champion Lady Eagle Track Team will also be honored and well the CCAISD school board for their dedication to our students and athletes.
A concession stand will be provided with hamburger and sausage wrap meals. Anyone who would like to volunteer is encouraged to contact the school.
